HES Final Exam Study Guide 10/13/16 Smart Goals  Smart Goal setting  Specific/Measurable/Attainable/Realistic/Timely 5 Health-related Components of Fitness o Cardio Respiratory Fitness o Muscular strength o Muscular endurance o Flexibility o Body composition  Assessing Cardiorespiratory Fitness o Gas analysis during maximal exercise provides a VO2 MAX level which determines one’s level of cardiorespiratory fitness o VO2 MAX estimate 1.5 mile run  Assessing Muscular Strength o 1RM testing  Assessing Muscular Endurance o Push-ups to fatigue (females on knees) o 1 minute curl-ups  Assessing flexibility o Sit and reach o Reach test  Measuring Body composition o Recommendations for Body Fat percentage  Females 20-25%  Males 13-17% o Body Comp Assessments DXA = Gold Standard Cardiorespiratory Fitness  A measure of the ability of the circulatory, respiratory. And musical systems to meet oxygen demands during aerobic exercise Health Benefits of Aerobic Exercise  Improved bone/joint health  Decrease depression  Improved sleep quality  Decreased cancer risk  Decreased CVD risk factors  Blood pressure FITT Principle for Cardio  Frequency (3-5 days per week)  Intensity (60-85% of HRR for aerobic fitness/ 40-60% of HRR for weight loss)  Time (30-60 minute sessions/longer duration recommended for weight loss)  Type (aerobic activities, running/ cycling/ swimming) Principles of Aerobic Training  Progressive Overload- you will need a greater stimulus eventually  Specificity- if you want to improve one activity, you should train for that activity Muscular Fitness Types of muscular fitness  Strength- maximum amount of force a muscle can generate (1 rep max)  Endurance- muscles ability to make repeated contractions against a submaximal force (test to fatigue/ reps per minute)  Power- rate of force generation= force x distance/time FITT Principle for Muscular Strength (memorize)  Frequency- 2-3 days per week  Intensity- 60-70% of 1RM (beginners) or >80% 1RM (experienced)  Time- reps: 8-12/ sets: 2-4  Type- anaerobic, weight machines, body weight, free weights Muscular Endurance  F – 2-3 days  I - < 50% of 1RM  T – reps: 15-20/ sets: 2-4  T – anaerobic, weight machines, body weight, free weights, bands Muscular Power  F – 2-3 days  I - 30-60% of 1RM  T- reps: 8-12/ sets: 2-4  T – anaerobic, weight machines, body weight, free weights, bands Differences between strength endurance power  Strength- high resistance, low reps  Endurance- low resistance, high reps  Power- fast/explosive, resistance varies Types of muscle contractions 1. Concentric- shortens 2. Eccentric- elongates 3. Isometric- no change Principles of Resistance Training  Specificity  Progressive overload- don’t do the same weight all the time  Recovery- causes small “tears” in muscles o Rest periods are necessary for this to occur  Reversibility- if you stop training you will lose muscle mass  Balance- necessary to exercise all muscle groups Tips and safety cues  Always have a spotter  Use correct posture  Exhale on exertion  Move through the full range of motion  Avoid using momentum to move the weight Flexibility Types of Flexibility  Dynamic o ROM achieved by quickly moving the limb to its limit  Static o ROM achieved through a slow, controlled stretch o No movement FITT Principle: Flexibility  Frequency o At least 2-3 days per week o Every day for greater benefit  Intensity o Stretch to the point of tension or mild discomfort o Never stretch to point of paint  Time o At least 204 sustained stretches for each muscle groups o Static: hold10-30 seconds o PNF: 6 second contraction, 10-30 second stretch  Type o Static or PNF, perform during cool down Training Principles  Progressive overload o Same stretching program will make you plateau o Need to push progressively, improve  Specificity o Joint-specific o Stretch muscles around joint you want to improve  Reversibility o Huge with flexibility o Use it or lose it o Will see rapid declines  Balance o If you stretch one muscle you want to stretch the other Safety Tips and Considerations  Do not hyper-flex or hyperextend the knee, neck or lower back  Do not bounce  Avoid holding your breath  Consciously relax the target muscle as it is being stretched  Avoid stretching to the point of pain Body Composition  Body Comp Assessments (BMI) o Waist circumference o Females < 35 inches o Males < 40 inches o Skin Folds o Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA)  Measuring Body composition o Recommendations for Body Fat percentage  Females 20-25%  Males 13-17% o Body Comp Assessments DXA = Gold Standard
