Training and Safety
Physical Activity Injuries
With any activity that involves movement, there is always a risk of
Injury. The risk increases when a person is not in good physical condition or has not sufficiently
Warmed up or cooled down. Participating in an outside activity can also increase your risk because of weather.
Two concerns during hot weather are dehydration and poor air quality. To avoid these stay away from physicalactivities during smog alerts and drink plenty of water.Some other risks during hot weather areover overexertion,heat cramps , or a heat stroke.
During cold weather you need to keep warm and hydrated. To healthrisksfrom cold weather are frost bite and hypothermia.
Before any physical activity it is important that you warmup and stretch. You should also wear protective gear. These things will help lower the risks of a muscle cramp, a strain , a sprain, fractures, dislocations,tendonitis, or concussions.
Being physical active has many positive effects on your mental/emotional health
It can help reduce stress. Doing some stretching exercises before bed,
Foe example, can help you relax tense muscles and sleep better after a difficult
day at school. Physical activity also allows to manage anger or frustration in a healthy
Way. By stimulating the release of certain chemicals that effect the brain, physical activity can improve you mood and decrease your risk of depression.
Thebenefits of physical activity have been extolled throughout western history, but it was not until the second half of this century that scientific evidence supporting these beliefs began to accumulate. By the 1970s, enough information was available about the beneficial effects of vigorous exercise on cardiorespiratory fitness that the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Heart Association, and other national organizations began issuing physical activity recommendations to the public. These recommendations generally focused on cardiorespiratory endurance and specified sustained periods of vigorous physical activity involving large muscle groups and lasting at least 20 minutes on 3 or more days per week. As understanding of the benefits of less vigorous activity grew, recommendations followed suit. During the past few years, the ACSM, the CDC, the AHA, the PCPFS, and the NIH have all recommended regular, moderate-intensity physical activity as an option for those who get little or no exercise. The Healthy People 2000 goals for the nation's health have recognized the importance of physical activity and have included physical activity goals. The 1995 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the basis of the federal government's nutrition-related programs, included physical activity guidance to maintain and improve weight - 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on all, or most, days of the week.
