The Importance Of Exercise Physiology

TA's: Anthony Coda and Joy Douglass
Exercise Physiology
Introduction
While exercising, one's body encounters a large amount of stress and the body works to adapt to these changes with several responses from different
systems of the body. The body is experiencing all of these physiological changes to make sure that it remains in homeostatic state. Homeostasis is "the
tendency for any organism to maintain a stable internal environment, even when the external environment is changing" (Tomicek & Waters, 2017, p.
55). The body maintains homeostasis by using negative feedback loops. Negative feedback loops are designed to self–correct changes within the body
(Tomicek & Waters, 2017, p. 56). During exercise, the body responds to changes in body temperature,oxygen concentration, carbon dioxide
concentration, heart rate, hemoglobin saturation, and blood pressure by communicating with the Central Nervous System of the body.
This exercise physiology experiment is most important to exercise physiologists. By using this experiment, exercise physiologists are able to monitor
and analyze their patient's fitness and determine whether they are in a healthy state or not, based upon the results of the exercise physiology
experiment (Exercise Physiologist, 2017). The data collected from this experiment can also be used by college professors who teach human biology
classes and researchers who are studying exercise physiology more in depth.

The Importance or Exercising Regularly
Our physical health and wellness is greatly effected by the various behaviors and decisions we make as human beings. In order to maintain physical
health, we need to accomplish the numerous goals we set for ourselves. Physical health is so important to us because it effects all of the other
dimensions of wellness severely. Physical health has various benefits that could be very harmful if one does not exercise regularly. For example,
exercising regularly can reduce the risk of Cardiovascular Disease and reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic syndrome. Heart diseases and
strokes are two of the various leading causes of death in the United States. Only 150 minutes a week of moderate–intensity aerobic activity can lower
ones chances of getting heart diseases like those. Regular physical activity can lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels. Regular
activity will also decrease the chance of Type 2 diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome, which is when one has too much fat around the waist, high blood
pressure, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, or high blood sugar. Consistent exercise can reduce the harms of these dreadful diseases.
Improving ones mental health and mood is also a benefit of the regular physical activity. It can keep thinking, learning, and judgement skills sharp as
one ages. It will reduce the risk of depression and could potentially help one sleep better. Research shows that doing aerobic exercises and muscle

The Benefits of Physical Activity Essay
Studies have shown that one who is physically active has higher chances of living longer. Del Sanden writes in his article on Exercise Statistics,
"People who engage in physical for 7 hours per week have a 40 percent lower chance of dying early than people who are active for less than 30
minutes a week." This statement is one of the many statements in his article proving the importance of fitness; it has the ability to enhance quality of
life. Regular exercise can lower the risk of many diseases, improve the function of the physical body, as well as psychological health.
Fitness by definition is the condition of being physically fit and healthy. It does not necessarily mean gym workouts, it means being active. When one
is active, the...show more content...
Another disease that is commonly found in the US, but can be prevented by physical activity is Diabetes. Diabetes is a disease when the body does
not produce enough insulin making sugar levels very high. However, when muscles are in action they can take the sugar/glucose from the blood
without the help of insulin. The amount of physical activity necessary for prevention is minimum and does not take up much time. "Research suggests
that 2 1/2 hours per week of even leisurely physical activity–like brisk walking–is enough to significantly improve glucose tolerance." By going
walking instead of sitting by a television screen, one can prevent a disease like diabetes which requires constant medication. Decisions like taking steps
instead of elevator can make a huge difference to one's health.
Besides for the aforementioned, being active strengthens the body, making it more reliable. Activity works the bones and muscles, making them able to
handle more. Bones are living tissue. "Weight–bearing physical activity causes new bone tissue to form, and this makes bones stronger. This kind of
physical activity also makes muscles stronger. Bones and muscles both become stronger when muscles push and tug against bones during physical
activity." This build up enables the body to carry it's own weight, making standing on the feet an effortless activity. Stronger bones helps for better
balance

The Importance Of Physical Activity
Physical activity is defined as any bodily movement that is produced by skeletal muscles that requires the use of energy. It is very important for the
brain and it has been proven to improve memory. Not only can it improve memory, it can also help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and
depression. Physical activities include but are not limited to running, swimming, walking, bicycling, and even yoga. The more active that a person is
the more that person will benefit. Though, if a person wants the best results on their brain that person also has to sleep the required amount of time. The
human brain is just like any other muscle in the body. It weighs only three pounds and consists of about one billion neurons, the basic working unit of
the brain. Physical activity does the brain better, than just dieting. According to scientists, dieting can damage the brain's insulin receptors while also
damaging spatial learning and memory skills. Studies also show that exercise can delay the age at which a person might get Alzheimer's disease by
thirty years or more. It also slows brain aging by an average of ten years.
The physical activity guidelines are very different for every stage in a person's life. For children or adolescents the suggested amount of exercise per
day would be at least sixty minutes. This would require at least three days of vigorous intensity exercise every week. For adults the guidelines are
different, the suggested amount of time is one–hundred and fifty

The Importance of Physical Exercise Essay
The Importance of Physical Exercise
What is exercise? The actual definition of exercise is; to use repeatedly in order to strengthen or develop, but to make it simpler, exercise is doing
programs and workouts to keep fit, for example, running, hiking, bicycling, and any active sport.
Most Americans do little or no exercise during work or rest hours. Today there aren't many jobs requiring intensephysical activity. Instead of walking,
people use automobiles or public transportation. Instead of being physically active, people usually watch TV in their free time. Some sports such as
bowling, golf, and tennis (doubles) provide some exercise, but do not provide as much exercise as other more vigorous sports.
Exercise is very important...show more content...
This happens when a person exercises too hard for too long, this mostly happens to people that have been inactive for a while.
In some situations, people have died while exercising. In these situations, most of the deaths have been by overexertion in people who have had heart
problems. For people who are under the age of thirty, these heart conditions are usually from heart defect present at birth. For the people that are over
the age of 40, the heart condition is usually coronary artery, which is the buildup of deposits of fats in the heart's blood vessels. A lot of these deaths
have followed by warning signs such as chest pain, lightheartedness, fainting, and extreme breathlessness. These are symptoms that should not be
ignored and medical attention should be advised immediately.
Exercising too hard is not good for anyone, however, and is especially dangerous for out–of–shape, middle–aged and older people. It is very important
for all people to follow a gradual and sound exercise program.
If you are wondering how long it would take to be in shape, think about this; look at how long you have been out of shape and it will take about that
much time to get back in shape if you exercise properly.
With some of this information earlier stated, exercise seems pretty dangerous, but it's not very dangerous at all, you just need to be careful. No
research studies have shown that physically active people are more likely to have sudden, fatal heart

They affect the child's physical wellbeing in terms of energy levels, growth and the ability to concentrate (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2010). As children grow they continue to need physical activity. One of the methods of exercise that is popular with children in the middle childhood age is rough and tumble play or 'play fighting' (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2010). Unfortunately, this sort of play is often discouraged by schools because of the possibility that someone may become injured. (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2010). Teachers must find the balance between protecting children from getting hurt and allowing them to run and jump to release the copious amounts of energy that they have to burn (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2010). Another unfortunate hindrance to physical activity in schools is the notion that physical activity takes away from time that could be used for academic studies. This is unjustified however, because children of this age group are unable to sit and concentrate for long periods of time without being able to get up and move (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2010).

As you exercise regularly, your entire body becomes more efficient. Your heart begins to pump more blood with each beat and to beat fewer times each minute. Your body develops the ability to make more oxygen available to your cells. That means more energy– greater productivity, more stamina, and less fatigue. # Feel Good. Exercise makes you feel good, both physically and mentally. It gives you a psychological lift and strengthens your sense of accomplishment. The discipline associated with exercise also makes you feel good about yourself: "I feel good that I walked today," or "When I run, I feel I have control over one area of my life." # Look Good. Regular exercise plays an important role in helping to reduce body fat and weight and to develop muscle. Fitness can give you a better–looking, better–proportioned body: a flatter abdomen, firmer thighs, and slimmer hips. # Feel Younger. Increasing your activity level can reverse or slow the changes that many people think are simply the unavoidable results of aging. In reality, lack of exercise usually reduces flexibility, strength, blood vessel elasticity, and lung functions; slows reaction time and metabolism; and increases body fat between ages 30 and 60. # Build A StrongerHeart.

Cells depend on the oxygen and nutrients supplied by the blood to do their various jobs–from the heart muscle cells that keep your heart pumping to the brains cells that keep you thinking and coordinating your countless activities. Being active boosts high–density lipoprotein, or "good" cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This, in effect, protects against heart disease and stroke. Nerve cells benefit from better blood flow. Physical activity is able to shift neurons in your brain from a revved, stressed state–more vulnerable to dangerous cardiac rhythms and heart attacks–to a relaxed state. This is important because you want this system working smoothly so that it efficiently responds to changing demands for oxygen, speeding up the rate when you are active and slowing it down when you are at rest. It also improves your metabolism – the ongoing chemical processes within living cells and organisms that are necessary for the maintenance of life.

If you went and did a couple hundred meter sprints for your workout, it only works the fast muscle fibers, and they use primarily carbohydrates and don't burn that much fat at all. For example, when you get on an elliptical or treadmill you can push the "fat burning" button, it will be longer and lower intensity because that favors the muscles that are going to burn more fat.
