PH 100 Personal Health Fall 2016 Chapter 4 lecture notes Physical fitness is a set of attributes that people have or achieve that relates to the ability to perform physical activity. Cardiorespiratory Endurance – ability of heart and lungs to supply oxygen to working muscles. Cardiorespiratory Endurance is basic to whole body fitness. Aerobic means with oxygen. With regular aerobic exercise your heart and lungs will become stronger. Anaerobic means without oxygen. Anaerobic exercise is intense, short in duration activity, to develop strength. Example is weightlifting. Muscular fitness is important for your body to accomplish work, maintain good posture, lift, and to push and pull. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) says to achieve cardiorespiratory fitness, the mode of activity should be continuous activity using large muscles. It is important to find exercise you like. It is recommended that to help you an exercise program is to make it enjoyable. In developing a cardiorespiratory program, how often you train is important. Frequency should be 3-5 times per week. To achieve a training effect, you must exercise at your target heart rate. ACSM recommends that healthy adults exercise at an intensity level of between 65% and 90% of your maximum heart rate. ACSM recommends 20-90 minutes of continuous activity. Isometric is a type of strength building exercise that involves exerting force against immovable objects. Isotonic is exercise using same tension throughout a full range of motion. Examples of this are barbells and dumbbells. Muscle endurance is best developed by increasing repetitions. The best combination of effectiveness and low risk for maintaining flexibility is a regular program of static stretching. Maintaining a healthy body composition is an important concern because of the high incidence of obesity in the United States. People between the ages of 45 and 64 most commonly experience gradual degeneration in joint cartilage. Exercises for younger adults may be inappropriate for people over aged 50. An example of an inappropriate exercise is full court basketball. Postural problems tend to be the main culprit of low back pain. Osteoporosis occurs when bone loses calcium. Exercise can help prevent osteoporosis because it helps to sustain bone growth. Premenopausal women should take 1,000 to 1,300 mg of calcium a day. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It develops as we age. You should always see a doctor before starting a new exercise program if you have a chronic disease.
