Common Terms in Cardiovascular Training
Terms in this set (23)
The capacity to take in, transport, and utilize oxygen.
Moderate physical activity that places demands on the oxygen-using pathways that supply blood to your working muscles.
aerobic strength endurance
Force produced footfall-per footfall (or movement-per-movement) in the face of massive oxygen debt, such as that incurred in long distance training or competition.
Exercising aerobically in order to improve your level of aerobic fitness.
Occurs as you begin to exercise when your intake of oxygen does not immediately meet your demands.
maximal oxygen consumption (ImageO2 max)
The highest rate of oxygen consumption which a person is capable over a period of time.
When oxygen intake meets the body's demands during exercise.
Inspired oxygen during recovery phase from exercise that is in excess of the body's resting needs.
The amount of aerobic exercise you must perform in order to sustain your existing level of aerobic fitness.
The most popular way to express aerobic fitness. To eliminate the influence of body size, an individual's maximal oxygen consumption score (in liters) is divided by the individual's body weight (in kilograms). The resulting value allows comparison of fitness levels regardless of body size.
aerobic training threshold
The minimum level of intensity (heart rate) that must be exceeded if significant changes in aerobic fitness are to result from the training.
The upper limit of training intensity beyond which additional training does not have a positive effect on your aerobic fitness level.
aerobic training zone
The range of training intensity that will produce improvement in your level of aerobic fitness.
aerobic training effect
The adjustments your body makes to the aerobic demands that are placed upon it.
specificity of training
The fact that the effects of training are specific to the manner in which the training is conducted and the activity employed as a training stimulus.
Refers to the fact that more is not automatically better when it comes to exercise.
How hard one is exercising.
A unit of measurement that refers to the relative energy demands of an activity in comparison to your energy demands in a resting state.
A measure of power (work performed per unit of time) involving a known force, distance, and time frame.
relative work intensity
Refers to the fact that work (exercise) is rated by the ratio of the energy required for the work to your resting (or basal) requirement.
Refers to how long one exercises.
How often one exercises.
aerobic exercise prescription
The referral of individuals to specific aerobic exercise programs that include specified protocol based on pre-activity assessments and evaluations and the individual's specific goal(s).
