What are the FIVE Health Related Fitness Components?
1) Cardiovascular Endurance,
2) Body Composition,
3) Muscular Strength,
4) Muscular Endurance
Define MET and what it is used for?
A MET is the caloric consumption of an individual while at complete rest. It is a useful way to describe the intensity of a variety of physical activities.
Light activity = 6 METS.
What are the SIX Skill Related Physical Fitness Components?
5) Reaction Time
Describe the steps of blood pressure measurement.
Inflate cuff to 20mm above 1st Korotkoff sound, Release pressure equal to 2-3mm per second, Listen for 1st sound (phase 1) and last sound (phase 4-5)
What is stage one hypertension?
SBP 140-159 OR DBP 90-99
BMI of 30.3 is classified as:
What are the ACSM guidelines for flexibility training?
Minimum of 2-3 days per week, ideally 5-7 days per week. Stretching to mild discomfort, hold stretch 15-30 sec and repeat 2-4 times.
What is the relationship between VO2 and body mass?
There is an inverse relationship between VO2 max and body mass
A 54 year old man has a resting HR of 74bpm and a maximal HR of 156bpm. Using the Karvonen Formula, calculate his target HR at 68% of his VO2 max.
What is the % calories from fat in the following food?
19g protein, 6 grams fat, 22 g carbohydrate
For individuals undertaking non-medically supervised weight loss initiatives to reduce energy intake, the ACSM recommends weight loss of approximately ________ lb per week?
1-2 pounds per week
What is a primary contractile protein in skeletal muscle?
the age range we consider children:
6 through 11
age range we consider adolescents:
intense activities lasting 10-90 seconds are not as difficult in children's physiology rather than adults.
children's physiology makes it harder for them to do this (adults have a higher capacity in intense exercise)
true or false:
children dissapate heat better than adults
children have a higher sweat threshold, smaller surface area..so they are more at risk to overheat
why might children have a bad running "economy" (the are not good at running)
low muscle mass, poor balance, under-developed physiologically
why is it not good to use the RPE scale when training children?
poor ability to perceive / understand exertion scale and what they are doing.
Ability of the circulatory + respiratory system to supply oxygen during sustained phys. activity.
Relative amounts of muscle / fat / bone / other vital parts of the body
ability of muscle to exert a force
ability of muscle to continue a performance without fatigue / failure
ability to change position of the body in space with accuracy & speed
ability to use sight, hearing etc... together with body parts performing tasks smoothly
ability / rate at which one can perform work
time elapsed between stimulation and the beginning of the reaction to it
ability to perform a movement within a short period of time.
___________ is always the first thing to obtain when working with children
because children have under developed physiology, poor balance and a fragile skeletal system its more important to focus on ________________ when using resistance training
proper form and technique
basic muscular strength program for kids:
___(A)___sets of ___(B)__ reps
of __(C)__ different exercises
__(D)__ non-consecutive sessions each week
A) 1-2 sets
B) 8-15 reps
C) 8-10 exercises
D) 2-3 non-consecutive sessions each week.
why are bodyweight exercises a good idea for children?
the risk of damage to ephiseayl plates in their bones...
when doing Cardio-respiratory training with children...any workout over ____ hours should be avoided.
if children are obese....try to Accumulate ___ min of CRF training over several hours on most days of the week - for overweight children, performing this much may be to much.
They are mentally and physiologically immature and may require extra motivation and support during the exercises
