Types of Fitness Weight lifting Aerobic Anaerobic Resistance
Positives of Fitness Good for your heart and lungs Maintain a healthy weight Build muscle Help reduce risk of cancer Build up immune system
Fitness and Obesity Reduces Obesity by 30 percent Increases metabolism Number one reason for obesity is lack of fitness Number one reason for death in America is Obesity
Aerobic “Aerobic activity is physical activity that improves oxygen intake and also your heart.” (Glenn, Jim) Aerobic means with oxygen Many types of aerobic exercises and performed at a moderate level of intensity.
Aerobic Capacity Maximum amount of oxygen that the body can use during a specified period of physical activity “Daily exercising for thirty to forty five minutes can increase lung capacity around seventy percent for the average person.” ( Smith, Charles)
Disadvantages of Aerobic Exercise Does not increase the basic metabolic rate as much as weight training would Higher risk of stress injuries Burns less calories then Anaerobic exercises but fewer afterwards
Anaerobic Exercise that triggers the metabolic rate Requires maximum effort and oxygen intake Non endurance exercise Used for greater performance that requires a shorter duration of time to complete
Two types of anaerobic systems High energy phosphates Anaerobic glycolysis
Lactate Threshold Lactic Acid build up in the blood stream Occurs when your heart rate and muscles reaches 90 to 95 percent of its maximum effort Occurs from a lack of oxygen being distributed through out the blood stream and to the muscles
Class Activity Stretching Five different stretches Hamstrings Quadriceps Shoulder Triceps Calves
