    Consisting of 100 multiple-choice and true-false questions, this continuing education exam is designed to be taken after reading Practical Guide to Exercise Physiology, Second Edition. The exam will test your knowledge of the information presented in the book, so you can understand and explain exercise program design on a physiological level.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading the book and successfully completing the 100-question exam, you will be able to do the following:
    • Identify the important structural components of skeletal muscle.
    • Describe how a motor unit activates a muscle cell, resulting in a muscle contraction.
    • Differentiate between type I and type II muscle fibers.
    • Identify the various pathways used in the production of ATP.
    • Explain how carbohydrates provide an optimal source for energy in muscle cells.
    • Describe the importance of amino acids and vitamins in energy and exercise.
    • Explain how CO2 is an important component in oxygen transport.
    • Describe energy expenditure and how it relates to exercise.
    • Explain the importance of glycogen storage and depletion in terms of exercise demands.
    • List the effects of dehydration.
    • List the recommendations for hydration.
    • Explain the scientific principles that form the framework of a successful training program.
    • Explain the physiological adaptations to various training programs.
    • Differentiate between strength, power, and endurance.
    • Describe each type of muscle contraction.
    • Explain why certain sports have a higher energy expenditure than others.
    • Define the term female athlete triad.
    • Describe the thermal effect of food.
    • List different forms of interval training.
    • Explain VO2max and how it relates to exercise.
    • Explain the upper limit for cardiac output.
    • List the most common environmental stressors that affect exercise.
    • List the guidelines for training for the pediatric and young adult populations.

    Bob Murray, PhD, FACSM, was a cofounder of the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) and served as its director from 1985 to 2008. Murray oversaw a broad program of GSSI- and university-based research in exercise science and sport nutrition that set industry standards and consumer expectations for science-based product efficacy.

    A native of Pittsburgh, Murray earned his BS and MEd degrees in physical education at Slippery Rock University. He was an assistant professor of physical education and head swimming coach at Oswego State University from 1974 to 1977 before earning his PhD in exercise physiology from Ohio State University. He was an assistant and associate professor of physical education at Boise State University from 1980 to 1985 before relocating to Chicago to begin work with Gatorade. In 2008, Murray founded Sports Science Insights LLC, a consulting group that helps clients with projects in exercise science and sports nutrition. An author of numerous publications in scientific texts and journals, and an invited speaker at professional meetings worldwide, Murray is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and an honorary member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Bob and his wife Linda live in Crystal Lake, Illinois.

    W. Larry Kenney, PhD, FACSM, FAPS, is the Marie Underhill Noll Chair in Human Performance and a professor of physiology and kinesiology at Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Kenney was awarded the prestigious Faculty Scholar Medal by Penn State for his research contributions. He has published more than 220 journal articles and dozens of book chapters on the topic of human responses to exercise, heat and cold stress, and dehydration as well as the biophysics of heat exchange between humans and the environment. He was continuously funded by National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1986 through 2015, one of the longest-running R01 grants. Over the years, he has mentored 38 MS or PhD students along with 8 postdoctoral fellows and numerous undergraduate scholars.
    Dr. Kenney is the primary author of Physiology of Sport and Exercise, a best-selling textbook in exercise physiology, now in its seventh edition; it has now been translated into 12 languages. He served as president of the American College of Sports Medicine from 2003 to 2004 and received the Citation Award from that organization in 2008. He is also a fellow of the American Physiological Society and was presented with the Adolph Distinguished Lectureship Award by that organization in 2017. He is the former chair of the Gatorade Sports Science Institute and serves on many scientific advisory panels, including Nike’s Science Advisory Board.
