____________- physical activity that is planned or structured

physical activity

____________-any bodily movement that is done by skeletal muscles that results in energy being used

overload principle

what principle states: subjecting the body to more physical activity than it is used to

principle of progression

which principle states: a gradual increase in a training programs intensity, frequency and or time?

10% rule

the principle of progression is also know as the____________?

principle of specificity

which principle states: the concept that only the body systems worked during training will show adaptions

principle of reversibility

which principle states: the concept that training adaptations will revert towards initial levels when training is stopped

principle of individuality

which principle states: refers to the variable nature of physical activity dose-response or adaptation in different people

principle of recovery

which principle states: your body needs time to rest from the physiological and structural training stresses that you place on it

FITT formula

____________- a formula for designing a safe and effective exercise program that specifies 4 things

frequency, intensity, time, type

what does the FITT formula stand for?

gain health benefits, to be more fit, socialization

what are 3 common reasons for starting exercise?

specific, measurable, action oriented, realistic, time oriented

What are SMART goals?

cardiorespiratory fitness

____________-the ability of your cardiovascular and respiratory systems to supply oxygen and nutrients to large muscle groups for continual activity


___- the body's form of energy. stored in muscles

cardiac output

____________- the amount of blood exiting your heart in 1 minute

1. immediate energy system
2. aneraobic energy system
3. aerobic energy system

know the 3 metabolic systems

immediate energy system

which metabolic system is quick access to energy for explosive activities

aneraobic energy system

which metabolic system breaks down glucose without oxygen quickly for activity needs in the first 2-3 minutes of exercies

aerobic energy system

which metabolic system utilizes oxygen to break down fat, glucose and protein for sustained activities

muscular strength

____________- the ability of a muscle or a group of muscles to contract with maximal force

muscular endurance

____________- the ability of a muscle to contract repeatedly over an extended amount of time

muscular fitness

____________-the ability of the muscular skeletal system to perform daily or recreational activities without undue fatigue


____________- the ability of muscles to contract with force and speed

resistance training

____________- when you put measured stressed on the muscular skeletal system. results in greater strength endurance
