Instructor Contacts: [email protected]
Overview
This course is designed as laboratory to the KNPR 203 course. In this laboratory based class we will go
into methods and techniques to assess cardiorespiratory fitness and body composition determination.
Student Learning Outcomes
Besides the content and specific skills, this course will provide opportunities to enhance other skills needed
in the real world such as:
a) Communication skills- oral and written communication of technical information
b) Thinking and Reasoning- performing calculations and developing tables
c) Information management- Being able to use technical machinery, and understand data in a
meaningful way to help guide a client’s program.
Course Objectives
After taking this course, students should be able to:
1) Relate aerobic metabolism to cardiovascular training.
2) Identify typical and atypical cardiorespiratory conditions and responses to exercise as evaluated by
heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, and other health indicators.
3) Express the physiological basis for various training principles
4) Analyze body composition and discuss implications on self and society
5) Recognize aerobic enhancing ergogenic aids and discuss the impact and use or abuse of health
related fitness
6) Distinguish between research based, safe and effective modifications to aerobic training activities
and anecdotal evidence.
Course Content and Required Book
This course will use:

Text- Acevedo, E.O., Starks, M.A. Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab Manual 2nd Ed. Human
Kinetics, Champaign IL
Grading
 3 Written Tests- 20% each= 60%. The tests will be multiple choice type tests with some essay
questions being given sporadically.

5 Practical Assignments- 5%= 25%
a) Determining metabolic rate using calculations
b) Determining exercise heart rates- resting, max, HRR values
c) Rockport Walk Test- VO2max and VO2, HRmax and HR calcs
d) Determining BMI, WHR, Military test
e) Determining body composition - 4 ways
The demonstration tests will be to see if you understand how to perform a given calcultion. The grading for
assignments will be: 5- excellent presentation and calculation, 4= correct not neat, 3= not correct and okay
presentation, 2- both incorrect and not neatly presented

Prescription Project= 15%. The prescription project will take place across multiple weeks and will
involve several stages of using data from an analysis or assessment and client goals and then
prescribing a program from there.
Course grades will be on a straight scale, with the final point assignment being at the discretion of the
instructor.

A= 90% and above
B= 89.9%- 80.0%
C= 79.9%- 70.0%
D= 69.9%- 60.0%
F- 59.9% and below
Late assignments will be deducted as follows- within 24 h= 20% reduction, 48h= 33%, 72h= 50%, after
72h the assignment will not be accepted. Make up on tests must be arranged prior to the exam and must
be taken before the following class.
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: Your success in this course is important to me. Santa Ana College and I are
committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all individuals with disabilities. If you have a disability that
may have some impact on your ability to do well in this course, I encourage you to speak with me as soon as
possible. Also, please contact Disabled Student Programs & Services so that we can all collaborate on your
classroom accommodations in a timely manner. DSP&S is located in U-103 and their phone number is 714-5646264. The DSP&S office requires documentation of your disability in order to receive reasonable
accommodations. If you do not have documentation they will work with you to acquire it. I look forward to supporting
you to meet your learning goals.
ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY: Students at Santa Ana College are expected to be honest and forthright in their
academic endeavors. To falsify the results of one’s research, to steal the words or ideas of another, or to cheat on an
examination, corrupts the essential process by which knowledge is advanced. Academic dishonesty is seen as an
intentional act of fraud, in which a student seeks to claim credit for the work or efforts of another without authorization, or uses unauthorized materials or fabricated information in any academic exercise. As institutions, we also
consider academic dishonesty to include forgery of academic documents, intentionally impeding or damaging the
academic work of others, assisting other students in acts of dishonesty or coercing students into acts of dishonesty.
