Long term effects of exercise on cv & energy systems

  2. 2. Long Term Effects of Exercise onthe Body Systems What body systems  As you exercise do we mean? regularly your body1. Cardiovascular adapts – you become fitter – more able to2. Respiratory cope with the3. Energy systems demands of exercise.4. Muscular We are going to look5. Skeletal at what changes occur in the heart, lungs, muscle,6. CREMS skeleton and energy systems.
  3. 3. Learning Outcomes Identify the 5 main body systems that are affected by long term exercise Describe 3 key changes to the cardiovascular system after long term exercise (e.g. after 6 weeks) Identify 2 changes to the energy systems as an adaptation to long term exercise Examine and record our current level of cardiovascular fitness

  5. 5. Heart Cardiac HypertrophyThe heart increases in its size and blood volume.The wall of the left ventricle thickens ..why? to increase the strength potential of its contractions In sedentary, middle aged individuals it may be as high as 100 beats/min. Normal heart Elite endurance rate (HR) 60- athlete’s HR 80 beats / min 28 – 40 bpm

CV system cont... Increase in Stroke  In untrained individuals Volume stroke volume at rest itSV = The amount of blood that averages 50-70ml/beat can be pumped by the heart increasing up to 110- per beat. 130ml/beat beat duringThis means the heart can now pump more blood per minute. intense, physicalWhy is this beneficial? activity.Increased blood flow allows for  In elite athletes resting faster and more efficient stroke volume averages delivery oxygen and nutrients 90-110ml/beat increasing to as much as 150-220ml/beat

  8. 8. CV system cont...Discussion Eg An untrained student’s heart rate was measured at 140bpm while running 6mph on the treadmill After 6 weeks of exercise (running for 30 mins 3 times per week) I would expect HR to decrease increase 1. Why? 2. What physiological changes would have occurred?

CV system cont... Decreased resting  Capillarisation heart rate  Capillary networksWith regular training your increase to your cardiac resting HR falls. and skeletal muscle.Also your HR returns to  This improves blood normal quicker after supply to the active exercise. muscles and improves the muscles’ efficiencyHow could you measure these improvements over your 6 week program?

Regular exercise can contribute to lowering BP.

  12. 12. RecapTASK  In pairs, recall at least 3 key changes to your CV system as a result of long term exercise? 1. Cardiac hypertrophy 2. Increased SV 3. Increased CO 4. Decreased resting HR 5. Capillarisation 6. Increase in blood volume 7. Reduction in resting BP 8. Decreased recovery time 9. Increased aerobic fitness
  13. 13. Long Term Effects of Exercise on theEnergy SystemTask  In pairs  Exercise can cover a wide range of meanings ....what exercise are we considering? On a flip chart write exercise in the middle and jot down what exercise means to you. Type Intensity Frequency Duration
  14. 14. Long Term Effects of Exercise on theEnergy Systems Type Intensity Frequency Duration What systems does our body use to supply energy to our muscles? ATP-CP 1-10 secs Lactic Acid energy system 10s – 2mins Aerobic Energy system 2 mins +
  15. 15. Long Term Effects of Exercise on theEnergy Systems At cellular level  Increased use of fat muscles need what as an energy source to contract? ATP  Fat combustion powers What adaptations may almost all exercise at occur at cellular level ? 25% of aerobic power.1. Increase in level of  Fat oxidation increases if enzymes for aerobic and exercise extends to long anaerobic systems. periods as glycogen depletes2. Increase in size of mitochondria.  Trained athletes burn more fat as fuel than non-trained athletes.
  16. 16. Long Term Effects of Exercise on theCV & Energy SystemsPaired Task  Identify 2 changes to the energy systems as an adaptation to long term exercise  Describe 3 key changes to the CV system and how you may examine record those changes before and after a 6 week training program
