  • 1. Physical Inactivity UBC Students for Science Based Medicine

  • 3. How much exercise is enough? http://ocnutrition.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/istock_workout1.jpg Let’s look at the evidence relating physical activity with health…
  • 4. Outline • Defining terms • Physical activity vs. exercise • Canadian recommendations for physical activity • How can we achieve these guidelines • Consequences of inactivity – the evidence • The future of prescribed exercise
  • 5. http://amyfreundbodytalk.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/physical_bod y.326120151_std.jpg Question – fact or fiction: Does physical activity provide benefits to only the physical body?
  • 6. http://www.kaiserquotes.com/blog/wp- content/uploads/2012/01/Mental-Health- Insurance_XL.jpg The Mayo clinic suggests that mechanistically speaking physical activity is able to improve mental health three ways: 1. brain chemicals (endorphins & neurotransmitters) 2. immune system markers 3. body temperature FICTION! Physical activity does not just promote physical fitness but mental wellness as well.
  • 7. Outline • Defining terms • Physical activity & exercise vs. inactivity • Canadian recommendations for physical activity • How can we achieve these guidelines • Consequences of inactivity – the evidence • The future of prescribed exercise
  • 8. Physical Activity “Any bodily movement produced by the contraction of skeletal muscles that results in a substantial increase over resting energy expenditure.” - ACSM
  • 9. What does that mean? http://fitnessbodybuilding.co.uk/images/1musclesatside.jpg Skeletal Muscle – attaches to and moves your bones Resting Energy Expenditure - estimated value of how much energy your body requires in a day at rest http://img.ehowcdn.com/article-new/ds- photo/getty/article/78/104/86500437_XS.jpg
  • 10. Our definition of Physical Activity Becomes… • Any movement you make using your muscles that requires more energy than your body would need to lie on a couch http://tsh.to/img/Raking.jpg http://www.thedogtrainingsecret.com/s/g1PTdejmiUmyW1ip-Afz6A/walking-the- dog.jpg
  • 11. What comes to mind when you hear exercise? http://www.macrichmond.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/exercise-heart.gif
  • 12. Exercise “A type of physical activity consisting of planned, structured, and repetitive bodily movement done to improve or maintain one or more components of physical fitness.” - ASCM
  • 13. Our Definition of Exercise Becomes… • A planned or organized workout you do in order improve aspects of fitness such as flexibility or cardiovascular endurance http://www.faqs.org/photos/physical-fitness-2476.jpg http://www.downtownvancouver.com/images/gallery/2006-Sun-Run-finish-line- image.jpg
  • 14. Physical Inactivity “A lack of physical activity…currently the 4th leading risk factor for mortality worldwide.” - WHO
  • 15. Outline • Defining terms • Physical activity & exercise vs. inactivity • Canadian recommendations for physical activity • How can we achieve these guidelines • Consequences of inactivity – the evidence • The future of prescribed exercise
  • 16. Canadian Recommendations “All healthy adults aged 18-65 need moderate intensity physical activity for a minimum of 30 minutes five days per week” *Or a total of 150 minutes/week http://media.coreperformance.com/images/411*308/people-who-take-the-stairs- are-fitter-and-more-productive.jpg

Intensity • Moderate intensity exercise for 150 minutes a week Intensity Example Activity Affect on breathing Affect on body temperature Sitting Watching TV Normal Normal Very light Effort Dusting Normal Normal Light Effort Light Gardening Slight Increase Start to Feel Warm Moderate Effort Brisk Walking Greater Increase Warmer Vigorous Effort Jogging More out of breath Quite Warm Very Hard Effort Fast Run Greater Increase Hot/Sweating Maximal Effort All-Out Sprint Completely Out of Breath Sweating/Very Hot *Table adapted from Prescribing exercise as preventative therapy.

  • 19. http://www.triradar.com/files/2010/09/RulesOfRunning pg Question - Fact or fiction? Is aerobic training – the classic running, walking, or biking the only way to achieve health benefits from exercise?
  • 20. http://armstrongpodnsportshealth.files.wordpress.com/2 010/12/evelyn_musclepose1.jpg FICTION! Resistance also known as strength training has recently been proven to show important health benefits that are not gained from aerobic training. A study conducted by researchers from the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility (Vancouver), recently found that women that did strength training showed lasting improved cognitive function and functional brain plasticity, while the women doing other forms of exercise did not.
