  23. 23. PARTICIPATION IN TERMS OF OPPORTUNITY, PROVISION & ESTEEM • Various groups of people may not want to participate in sport – and this could be for a variety of reasons. • We tend to discuss these reasons in terms of – opportunity – provision – esteem • More of this later in section 1.21/26/2012
  24. 24. CONTEMPORARY CONCERNS1/26/2012
  25. 25. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR THE INDIVIDUAL? • Builds healthy bones, joints & muscles. • Improves psychological well-being. • Allows for personal challenge. • Encourages social mixing with others. • Prevents obesity. • Prevents diabetes. • Prevents high blood pressure. • Prevents coronary heart disease.1/26/2012
  26. 26. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR SOCIETY? • Improved health of the nation. • Decreased burden on national resources such as the NHS. • Decreased crime. • Increased opportunities for excellence on a world stage. • Increased socialisation between different cultures and groups.1/26/2012
  27. 27. WHY ARE WE MORE SEDENTARY NOW, THAN EVER BEFORE? • We have more office-based jobs than manual jobs. • We use cars/buses/trains to get to places - rather than walk or cycle. • The rise of the computer game! • Improvements in technology mean we can socialize in different ways other than sport - e.g. the internet.1/26/2012
  28. 28. HOW TO DEVELOP & SUSTAIN A BALANCED, ACTIVE & HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. • How often (frequency)? • 3-4 times a week - more if you are trying to lose weight or get fitter. • How much (intensity)? • A comfortable (moderate pace). • What kind of activity (type)? • Something enjoyable & which raises the pulse - for example: walking, climbing, playing tennis etc (the list is endless) • How long (time)? • At least 20-30 minutes.1/26/2012

  30. 30. OBESITY • OVERWEIGHT is a body weight that exceeds the norm or standard weight for a particular • height • frame size • gender’ • OBESITY – Definition • ‘a surplus of adipose tissue resulting from excessive energy intake relative to energy expenditure’ • males - body fat greater than 25% • females - body fat greater than 35% • CAUSE OF OBESITY • the main cause of obesity is a positive energy balance • ENERGY INTAKE > ENERGY OUTPUT • or more food than exercise1/26/2012
  31. 31. OBESITY AND HEALTH DISORDERS • THE FACTS • over 30,000 deaths a year are caused by obesity - in England • 22% of the British adult population are obese • 75% of the British adult population are overweight • child obesity has increased 3-fold in the last 20 years • obesity can lead to many health problems: – arthritis – heart disease – diabetes • DIABETES • a condition which occurs when a person’s body cannot regulate glucose levels • obesity and overweight conditions are major risk factors for type 2 diabetes1/26/2012
  32. 32. CORONARY HEART DISEASE (CHD) CHD • is one of Britain’s greatest killers and encompasses diseases such as angina and heart attacks or coronary thrombosis • angina begins as a chest pain which is due to ischemia or lack of blood and hence oxygen to the heart muscle itself • the first symptoms of CHD are usually noticed during physical exertion or excitement and the subsequent increase in heart rate • heavy, cramp-like pains are experienced across the chest • angina is normally treated and controlled with drugs and relaxation, but a person suffering from this condition has a higher risk of suffering from a coronary thrombosis CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (CVD) • include diseases of the heart and blood vessels OBESITY AND CHD • cardiac workload (hence risk of CHD) is less with lower body mass • capability to move around (walk / run / climb) therefore better with lower body mass1/26/2012
  33. 33. CHD CORONARY THROMBOSIS • heart attack is a sudden severe blockage in one of the coronary arteries, completely cutting off the blood supply to part of the myocardial (heart) tissue • this blockage is often caused by a blood clot formed within slowly moving blood in an already damaged, partially obstructed coronary artery • heart attacks can be severe or mild, depending on the positioning of the blockage • in a severe blockage the heart may stop beating - called a cardiac arrest, about half of all cardiac arrest cases die • in 2008, Coronary heart disease accounted for 30% of all UK deaths in people aged less than 75 years1/26/2012
  34. 34. DIABETES METABOLIC SYNDROME • this term links coronary artery disease, hypertension, abnormal blood lipids (fats), type 2 diabetes and abdominal obesity to insulin resistance INSULIN • insulin is a hormone which enables the transfer of glucose from the blood into cells where it is needed for metabolism DIABETES • this happens because the Islets of Langerhans situated within the pancreas stop functioning properly and therefore do not produce enough insulin or the insulin does not facilitate blood glucose to be transferred into cells where metabolism occurs - the cells have insulin resistance • hence cells (particularly muscle cells) will not have enough glucose to function properly - and the person feels exhausted • other symptoms are: – lack of circulation to the hands and feet – extremes of thirst or hunger – unexplained weight loss1/26/2012
  35. 35. HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE OR HYPERTENSION • occurs when a person’s blood pressure is continually high, equal to or greater than 140/90 mmHg • high blood pressure is often associated with excess weight and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis) • hypertension is a major contributing factor in atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease (CHD), and strokes1/26/2012
  36. 36. HIGH CHOLESTEROL CHOLESTEROL • cholesterol is a substance produced from fatty foods • particularly from a diet high in saturated fat • if this is not removed by the digestive process, it can be deposited in arteries causing them to be narrower • this is a form of atherosclerosis EXERCISE AND HIGH CHOLESTEROL • exercise increases High Density Lipoproteins HDL and decreases Low Density Lipoproteins LDL (LDL are responsible for depositing cholesterol and narrowing lumen of artery), hence blood pressure (BP) becomes stable • thus preventing hypertension RISK FACTORS FOR HIGH CHOLESTEROL • lack of exercise • diet • heredity • bodyweight • age • gender1/26/2012
  37. 37. METABOLIC SYNDROMEMETABOLIC SYNDROME• this term links coronary artery disease, hypertension, abnormal blood lipids (fats), type 2 diabetes and abdominal obesity to insulin resistance• the risk factors for this syndrome are: • arterial plaque build-up • excessive fat deposits in the abdominal region • high blood triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, high LDL cholesterol • raised blood pressure • raised cellular resistance to insulin • the inability to absorb glucose• roughly 20% of the population in the USA have this condition which makes type II diabetes worse and hence the risk of eyesight and circulation problems in older people 1/26/2012
  38. 38. • What is a sedentary lifestyle?• Lack of physical activity1/26/2012
  39. 39. SEDENTARY LIFESTYLES • HYPOKINETIC DISORDERS • diseases that develop partly due to insufficient exercise • OSTEOPOROSIS • this is an age-related condition in which reduction of bone mass takes place • this is due to reabsorption of minerals that form part of bone structure • making bones porous, brittle and liable to break • linked with hormonal changes in postmenopausal females • or with the sedentary lifestyle led by many elderly people • INACTIVITY • this leads to poor flexibility as muscles, tendons and ligaments become shorter and tighter • often resulting in back pain and other joint pain particularly in the knees and wrists • OSTEOARTHRITIS • this is a condition where joints thicken with fluid-filled pockets, restricting joint flexibility1/26/2012
  40. 40. ACTIVITY PATTERNS LIFESTYLE TRENDS • issues affecting health are: • diet and nutrition • lack of physical activity • smoking • alcohol • recreational drugs EFFECT ON LIFESPAN • all these factors affect the quality of life and age of death of an individual1/26/2012
  41. 41. AGEING AND HEALTH ARTERIOSCLEROSIS • hardening of the arteries usually occurring in older people, and which is a process enhanced by lack of exercise • this happens mostly in the lower limbs, and involves a gradual calcification of the tunica media (the muscular middle wall of an artery) • hence reducing the mobility of older people OSTEOPOROSIS • as mentioned above, this condition is linked with hormonal changes in postmenopausal females • or with the sedentary lifestyle led by many elderly people OSTEOARTHRITIS • this joint condition can be very restrictive for older people LONGEVITY • people are living longer as improved nutrition, health care, and exercise regimes are having an effect on life chances1/26/2012
  42. 42. ACCESS IN TERMS OF OPPORTUNITY & PROVISION OPPORTUNITY • various groups of people may not want to participate in sport for cultural reasons: • gender • ethnicity / religion • age • disability • social / economic class PROVISION • this is concerned with the facilities available to a potential performer • depends on the following factors: • inner city or countryside? • poor or rich neighbourhood? • regional hub nearby - and can the performer use it? • travel distance? • expensive equipment / kit required?1/26/2012
  43. 43. STRESS AND STRESSORS• STRESS• a response of the body to any demands made on it• symptoms of stress – physiological – psychological social chemical – behavioural psychological STRESSORS biochemical climatic bacterial physical 1/26/2012
  44. 44. • What makes you stressed?1/26/2012
  45. 45. STRESSORS • STRESSORS • social • disapproval of parents / peers • rejection by peers / parents • isolation from normal social interactions • chemical / biochemical • harm by ingestion of substances • bacterial • illness caused by micro-organisms • physical • injury / pain / exhaustion • climatic • extremes of weather • hot weather for endurance activities • rain and cold on bare skin • psychological • mismatch between perception of demands of task • and ability to cope1/26/2012
  46. 46. SYMPTOMS OF STRESS• PHYSIOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS • BEHAVIOURAL SYMPTOMS• increased heart rate • rapid talking• increased blood pressure • nail biting• increased sweating • pacing• increased breathing rate • scowling• decreased flow of blood to the skin • yawning• increased oxygen uptake • trembling• dry mouth • raised voice pitch • frequent urination• PSYCHLOGICAL SYMPTOMS• worry• feeling overwhelmed• inability to make decisions• inability to concentrate• inability to direct attention appropriately• narrowing of attention• feeling out of control1/26/2012
