Effects of Exercise to Promote Health 


    Exercise is an inevitable stimulus to promote health. The effect of exercise is not only on increasing caloric expenditure but also on stimulating adaptations to change inner environment of body. Exercise can increase muscle mass and muscle power and give us smooth locomotion. On the other hand, excess stimulus by exercise can cause deficiencies such as on knees and legs.

    This course provides overview of the effect of exercise and health promotion by three professors.  Prof. Fukashiro introduces effects of exercise through biomechanical analysis of body motion. Prof. Fukui explains medical aspects of exercise. Prof. Hatta analyzes biochemical aspects of exercise on health promotion.
