  • 1. THE HUMAN HEART Adam Seipel Physical Education 12/11/2010
  • 2. Listen…
  • 3. Heart Rate and Rate of Perceived Exertion +
  • 4. Objectives
    • YOU will be able to :
      • Localize your pulse and measure your heart rate .
      • Understand the importance of monitoring their heart rate .
      • Learn the importance of moderate to vigorous physical activity
      • Notice a change in breathing intensity with activity
      • Define RPE
      • Learn the rate of perceived exertion chart and describe at which level of the chart the activities performed correspond to.
  • 5. Your Pulse and Your Heart Rate
    • What is your pulse ?
      • Your pulse is the palpable rhythmic expansion of an artery produced by the increased volume of blood pushed into the vessel by the contraction of the heart .
    • Why does your pulse increase with exercise ?
      • The harder you work the faster your heart beats because it has to send oxygenated blood (blood rich in oxygen) to the muscles to help them continue to work.
    • Different locations to palpate your pulse :
      • Brachial artery - Carotid artery - Femoral artery
      • Radial artery - Popliteal artery - Ulnar artery
  • 6. Your Pulse and Your Heart Rate con’t
    • How to find and measure your pulse
      • Use your index finger and middle finger to lightly palpate either carotid or radial artery .
      • Subject’s arm must be relaxed
      • Subject can be sitting or standing up straight
      • When you find the pulse measure it for a total of one minute .
      • You can check your pulse before and after activity to see the difference.
  • 7. Rate of Perceived Exertion
    • Rate
      • The amount of something per given amount of time.
    • Perceived
      • What you personally think you observe/ educated guess.
    • Exertion
      • The energy or work you do
    • RPE
      • The amount of energy you think you do in a given amount of time.
    • Chart and Cardio worksheet
  • 8. Physical Activities
    • Walking and talking with a partner around the basketball courts
      • Calculate HR and RPE
      • Answer question
    • Play tag
      • Remember to play hard, play safe and play fair
      • Calculate HR and RPE
      • Answer question
    • Run, jog, or jump rope for 2 minutes without stopping
      • There is no minimum number of laps but want them to work at a level of 7 RPE
      • Calculate HR and RPE
      • Answer question
  • 9. Closure
    • Turn to someone around you and talk about what you noticed about your HR and RPE.
    • What are some similarities?
    • What are some differences?
  • 10. Weak Stomach’s BEWARE!!
  • 11. Heart Disease
  • 12. Workout Time
    • What is a workout ?
    • 30 minutes of continuous activity.
    • Heart rate must be elevated for the entire 30 minute time span.
  • 13. FREE Workout Ideas No Membership Needed!
  • 14. Target Heart Rate (THR)
    • Why is THR important?
    • Targeting your heart rate is a more effective way of working out.
    • Effectively track the intensity of your workout routine .
    • Helps to better plan workouts that reduce calories without tiring out or injuring yourself.
  • 15. Target Heart Rate (THR)
    • Reduce resting heart rate
    • Improve circulatory system
  • 16. Calculating Your THR
    • Take your age
    • Subtract it from 220
    • The sum is your Max heart rate (HRmax)
    • Example: Age= 35
    • 220 – 35= 185
    • 185 is the HRmax
    • This is an estimate pending other factors
  • 17. American Heart Association
    • Target Heart Rate Chart
  • 18. F.I.T.T. Principle
    • Frequency - how often you exercise
    • Intensity - The amount of effort you put into your workout (easy, medium, hard)
    • Time - How long each workout last
    • Type - type of exercises you will be doing
  • 19. Caution!
    • Consult your doctor before beginning any sort of rigorous workout regiment
    • When using your THR start slow and begin with 50% of your max HR.
    • Once the work out becomes easier, increase your intensity .
    • Pace yourself to avoid injury or
    • burnout.
