Aerobic Fitness
  • Generally considered the most important factor of good health and fitness
  • Aerobic fitness is linked to reduced risk of high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer
concept sequence
Concept Sequence
  • Elementary level: teach about the heart’s response to various intensities of activity;
  • Middle school: teach students about aerobic adaptations based on improved health and fitness levels
  • High School: help students to plan an exercise program based on their needs/goals
    • Work through THRZs and specific FITT principles
slide3
FITT
  • Based on fitness goals & age of students
    • Elementary
    • Adolescents (11+)
    • Those adolescents desiring performance benefits
intensity
Intensity
  • Max HR method: 208- (threshold -age)
    • THR zone: multiply MHR by the intensity percentages desired (60-90%)
      • Once lower zone is determined, next zone is 10% higher
  • Karvonen method: will determine HRR
    • THRZ=[[[208-(.7 x age)] -RHR] x %] + RHR
training methods
Training Methods
  • Continuous
    • K-2: 3-5 min
    • 3-5: 10 min
    • Middle & high: 20 + min
    • Overload & progression: increase the intensity or duration to provide additional health or fitness benefits
slide6
Circuit training:
    • Intensity and type of activities can vary from station to station
    • Adjust the intensity by altering the time spent at a station or by changing the rest interval
    • Should be aerobic in nature
      • Incorporate aerobic work through skill tasks
slide7
Interval training: alternates short activity with rest periods
    • Natural intermittent activity of young children
  • Although anaerobic in nature, maintaining short rest intervals keeps the activity more aerobic; HR will not recovery fully
safety
Safety
  • Build rest intervals for younger children
  • Make rest intervals optional for older
  • Children will produce more body heat than adults; provide water breaks
  • Avoid hot, humid weather with younger children; use good judgment with older students
tasks
Construct the following:

Continuous activities for all three levels of students

Circuit activities for all three levels

Interval activities for all three levels

Determine THR zone using both methods for 14 year old for :

HR fitness results

Performance results
