Patterns Physical Activity

  1. 1. Analysing Patterns of Physical Activity Levels of Physical Activity Necessary for Health
  2. 2. How much physical activity is enough? Support for moderate intensity activity especially walking. 30 minutes of activity is recommended each day. Bouts of 10 minutes can accrue to equal 30 minutes. Vigorous activity remains important, however unrealistic for majority of the population.
  3. 3. Relationship between physical activity and physical fitness. Physical activity is movement in general. Physical fitness focuses on particular attributes that affect a person’s ability to perform movements. Most important physical fitness component is cardio-respiratory endurance. This is a measure of the ability of the muscle cells to use oxygen being delivered to the circulatory system during extended exercise.
  4. 4. Individual who lack cardio-respiratory endurance find it difficult to perform endurance work. Improved cardio-respiratory system is strongly related to decreased risk of coronary heart disease. Significant benefits will be gained through vigorous activity, however smaller gains will result from brisk walking each day.
  5. 5. Physical Activity and energy expenditure Individuals need to expend a minimum of 3360 kilojoules when engaging in physical activity to enjoy any health benefits. Appropriate activities include those that use 12 – 25 kilojoules per hour. E.g. swimming leisurely, walking the dog, line dancing, golf, lawn bowls, sweeping the yard.
