Chapter 3 Notes▯ Cardiorespiratory Endurance: Assessment and Prescription▯ ▯ • Cardiorespiratory endurance: The ability to perform aerobic exercises for a prolonged ▯ ▯ period of time. ▯ • Aerobic Exercise: A common term to describe all forms of exercise that primarily use the aerobic energy system and that are designed to improve cardiorespiratory fitness.▯ • It promotes weight loss and reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease. **THE MOST ▯ ▯ IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF FITNESS**▯ • The most valid measurement of cardiorespiratory fitness is VO2max, or the maximum amount of oxygen the body can take in and use during exercise. This is a measure of both cardiorespiratory system and exercising skeletal muscles.▯ • Cardiovascular system: the heart and blood vessels▯ • Respiratory system: the lungs and muscles involved These systems work together in respiration▯ to deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout the body and • The Heart: two pumps in one; the right side pumps remove waste products. deoxygenated blood to the lungs through the “pulmonary Exercising them promotes a circuit” and the left side pumps oxygenated blood to higher demand for oxygen/ tissues through the “systemic circuit” ▯ nutrients. • Types of Blood Vessels: ▯ • Arteries: carry oxygenated blood AWAY from heart to body▯ • Veins: carry deoxygenated blood from body’s tissue to heart.▯ • (part of vein): Capillaries: thin-walled vessels that permit the exchange of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) and nutrients between the blood and tissues.▯ • Stroke Volume: the amount of blood that is pumped with each heartbeat▯ • Cardiac Output: the product of heart rate and stroke volume (amount of blood pumped per minute) HR x SV = CO▯ Alveoli: Tiny air sacs in the lungs that receive carbon dioxide and other waste from oxygen- • depleted blood. ▯ • Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP): A high-energy compound that is synthesized and stored in small quantities in muscle and other cells. **The breakdown of ATP results in a Two release of energy that can be used to fuel muscular contraction.**▯ systems in •naerobic: “without oxygen”; biochemical pathways that do not require oxygen muscle to produce energy (short-term exercise)▯ cells to •erobic: “With oxygen”; biochemical pathways that use oxygen to produce produce energy. (long-term exercise)▯ ATP ▯ •lycolysis: A process during which carbohydrates are broken down in cells. Much of the ANAEROBIC ATP pro ducting in muses cells occurs during glycolysis.▯ • Lactic Acid: a by-product of glucose metabolism, produced by intense exercise.▯ • Responses to exercise: changes that occur during exercise that help you meet the demands of the exercise and change back after exercise. (Sweating, breathing heavy, heart rate up, etc.)▯ • Adaptations to exercise: Semipermanent changes that occur over time with regular exercise. Adaptations can be reversed when a regular exercise program is stopped for an extended period of time. (Lower resting heart rate, endurance, VO2max more efficient etc.)▯ An Aerobic Exercise Program: warm up (5-10 min low intensity exercise and light stretching), • workout (3-5 times a week, moderate intensity, 30-60min), cool down (5-10 min of low intensity and then 5-30 flexibility)▯ • Training Threshold: the training intensity above which there is an improvement in cardiorespiratory fitness. (50% of VO2max)▯ • Target Heart Rate (THR): the range the heart rates that corresponds to an exercise intensity of approximately 50%-80% VO2max. (improve aerobic capacity).▯ • Heart Rate Reserve (HRR): difference between your maximal heart rate and resting heart rate (HRR = HRmax - resting HR)▯ • Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE): subjective way of estimating exercise intensity based on a numerical scale of 6-20.▯ Cross Training: the use of a variety of activities for training the cardiorespiratory system.▯ • • Interval Training: type of training that includes repeated sessions or intervals of relatively intense exercise alternated with lower-intensity periods to rest or recover.▯ • Benefits of Cardiorespiratory Fitness: lower risk of disease, feeling better, increased capacity to perform everyday tasks, improved self-esteem, body image.
