What are the 5 areas of health-related fitness.
- Cardiorespiratory endurance
- muscular strength
- muscular endurance
- body composition
The ability of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels to utilize and send fuel and oxygen to the body's tissues during long periods of moderate-to-vigourous activity.
The amount of force a muscle can exert.
The ability of the muscles to perform physical tasks over a period of time without becoming fatigued.
The ability to move a body part through a full range of motion.
The ratio of body fat to lean body tissue, including muscle, bone, water, and connective tissue such as ligaments, cartilage, and tendons.
Purposeful physical activity that is planned, structured, and repetitive and that improves or maintains personal fitness.
Leading cause of death.
Cardio deals with what body organ.
What is muscular strength?
lifting, pushing, or jumping
What is muscular endurance?
Being able to perform activites repeatedly.
What exercise woud use use to measure abdominal strength.
What test could you use to measure cardiorespiratory endurance?
What test could you use to measure upper body strength and endurance?
How could you measure body flexibility?
What is your body composition?
How much of your body is composed of fat and how much is composed of everything else.
What is a common method of determining body composition?
A guage that measures the thickness of the fat beneath a fold of skin.
Any activity that uses large muscle groups, is rhythmic in nature, and can be maintained continuously for at least 10 minutes three times a day or for 20 to 30 minutes at one time.
Examples of aerobic exercise include:
running, cycling, swimming, and dancing
Intense short bursts of activity in which the muscles work so hard that they produce energy without using oxygen.
Examples of anaerobic exercise:
- 100-meter dash
- lifting weights
Who should you consult before beginning a fitness program that involves aerobic activity?
health care professional
Three types of resistance exercises:
An exercise that uses muscle tension to improve muscular strength with little or no movement of the body part. (ex. pushing against a wall)
An exercise that combines muscle contraction and repeated movement.
(ex. calisthenics, push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, rowing machine)
An exercise in which a resistance is moved through an entire range of motion at a controlled rate of speed.
(ex. stationary bike or treadmill)
If you have good flexibiltiy you can . . .
bend, turn, and stretch
How can you improve flexiblity?
Calcium is essential for what part of your body?
Resistance training and weigh-bearing aerobic activities (walking or stair climbing) help increase bone mass (strengthen skeletal system)
