Physical Activity Gone Bad

What is physical activity

What is Physical Activity?

  • Physical Activity:

    Any form of exercise or movement. Physical activity may include planned activity such as walking, running, basketball, or other sports. Physical activity may also include other daily activities such as household chores, yard work, walking the dog, etc. ...

  • Any Ideas?

Physical activity benefits

Physical Activity Benefits

  • Physical

  • Academic

  • Mental

  • Social

Physical benefits bone density

Physical Benefits – Bone Density

  • Increases Bone Strength(Bone Density).

  • Impact through exercise causes bones to increase in density to adapt for increased stress levels.

  • Increased muscle strength causes bones to increase in density to withstand the increased pull that the muscles have on the bones.

Prevention of Osteoporosis

  • Abnormal loss of Bone Mineral Density

Physical benefits bone density1

Physical Benefits – Bone Density

  • Once you hit a certain age, bone density starts to decrease.

  • The loss in density cannot be avoided, but the rate can be slowed through exercise.

    Prevention of Osteoporosis

    • Abnormal loss of Bone Mineral Density

Physical benefits

Physical Benefits

  • Normal Bone Density vs. Osteoporosis Bone Density



Physical benefits1

Physical Benefits

  • Heart/lungs are stronger = more blood/oxygen to circulate.

  • Cholesterol levels are healthy.

  • Strong & healthy blood vessels.

  • Good ratio of muscle mass to body fat.

  • Metabolism Increases

    • Process in which body gets energy from food.

    • Increase in muscle mass = more calories burned.

Physical benefits2

Physical Benefits

  • Reduces chances of disease (more detail later).

  • More active and capable at any age.

  • Higher energy levels for longer periods.

  • Improves body posture.

  • Improves sleep.

  • Improves Body Mass Index (Next Slide)

Physical benefits bmi

Physical Benefits - BMI

  • Body Mass Index (BMI):

    • The ratio of your weight to your height.

    • Better indicator of disease risk.


      *Handout Copy of ADULT BMI Chart

Calculating bmi

Calculating BMI

  • Multiply your weight in pounds by 703(e.g. for a person weighing 149 pounds, this would be 149 x 703 = 104,747).

  • Multiply your height in inches times itself(e.g. for a person 65 inches tall, this would be 65 x 65 = 4,225).

  • Divide the answer in Step 1 by the answer in Step 2(e.g. 104,747 / 4,225 = 24.8).

Bmi teens vs adults

BMI – Teens vs. Adults

  • BMI calculation is the same for teens/adults.

  • BMI interpretation is different.

  • Healthy ranges cannot be given for teens because:

    • Teens are constantly changing.

    • Ranges change with each month of age for each gender.

    • Ranges change as height increases for each gender.

Bmi teens

BMI – Teens

  • Instead of BMI Ranges, Teens us BMI Percentiles

    Weight Status CategoryPercentile Range

    Underweight Less than the 5th percentile

    Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile

    Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile

Sedentary lifestyle1

Sedentary Lifestyle

Sedentary Lifestyle: A way of life that requires little movement and exercise.

Sedentary lifestyle2

Sedentary Lifestyle

Approaches to Everyday Activities


Taking car to store Walking to store

Using a golf cartWalking with clubs

Taking the elevatorTaking the stairs

Playing video gamesPlaying tennis


Sedentary lifestyle3

Sedentary Lifestyle

Metabolism: process in which body gets energy from food.

Sedentary lifestyle4

Sedentary Lifestyle

Basal Metabolic Rate(resting): minimum rate of energy required to maintain the basic life processes in body.

Exercise Metabolic Rate = Basal + Daily Activity

Think of it this way (next slide)…



GAS = Energy

Car = Human Body

Engine = Metabolism

Car Parked  Idle Engine  Very little Gas(BASAL)

Drive Around  Engine Revs Up  More Gas Needed(ACTIVITY)

Sedentary lifestyle5

Sedentary Lifestyle

  • Sedentary Lifestyle = Basal Metabolism

  • Problem?

  • Loss of Bone Density

  • Loss of Muscle Mass

  • More Energy Consumed Than Needed, Stored as Fat

Basal Metabolism + Overeating = Weight Gain (fat)

Sedentary lifestyle vs chronic disease

Sedentary Lifestyle vs. Chronic Disease

Sedentary Lifestyle Leads to Several Chronic Diseases (discussed during the disease unit).

  • Brief Overview of Some Diseases:

  • - Heart Disease

    • Diabetes

    • Stroke

    • Cancer

    • High Cholesterol, Blood Pressure

    • Lung Disease

    • Arthritis

    • Osteoporosis

    • Obesity

Types of physical activity

Types of Physical Activity

Aerobic: activity in which oxygen is continuously taken in for energy.


Types of physical activity1

Types of Physical Activity

Anaerobic:Intense burst of activity in which the muscles work so hard that they produce energy without using oxygen.


Variations of anaerobic

Variations of Anaerobic:

  • Isometric: little or no movement.

  • Isotonic: muscle contraction with repeated movement.

  • Isokenitic:variable resistance to a movement, so that no matter how much effort is exerted, the movement takes place at a constant speed.

  • Wrist

    Do not use thumb!

Finding beats per minute

Finding Beats Per Minute

1 Minute = 60 Seconds

Counting Pulse Rate:

Count for 6 Seconds = Multiply By 10

Count for 10 Seconds = Multiply By 6

Or……. Count For The Whole Minute 

Target heart rate zone

Target Heart Rate Zone

Target Heart Rate Zone:Range in which your heart rate should be during exercise for maximum cardiorespiratory endurance.

  • 1. Find Resting Heart Rate (RHR)

  • 2. Subtract Age From 220 (Maximum Heart Rate - HR)

  • 3. Subtract Resting RHR from MHR

  • 4. Multiply # From Step 3 by 85% and then by 60% (two #’s)

  • 5. Add RHR to result when multiplied by 85% (Step 4)

  • 6. Add RHR to result when you multiplied by 60% (Step 4)

Physical activity recommendations

Physical Activity Recommendations

Children and adolescents should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of physical activity daily.

Aerobic:Most of the 60 or more minutes a day should be either moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity, and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week.

Key Guidelines for Children and Adolescents:

Physical activity recommendations1

Physical Activity Recommendations

Muscle-strengthening: As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include muscle-strengthening physical activity on at least 3 days of the week.

Bone-strengthening: As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include bone-strengthening physical activity on at least 3 days of the week.

Planning your fitness program3

Understanding Energy Systems

Energy systems human body

Energy Systems – Human Body

  • If the body does not create energy, we would not live.

  • We consume food for energy, but it is not that simple.

  • Complex chemical systems.

  • 3 Total Energy Systems.

Energy systems human body1

Energy Systems – Human Body


- Phosphogen System (ATP-PC) 8-10 Seconds

- Glycogen-Lactic Acid SystemUp to 90 Seconds


- Adenosine Phosphate GroupUnlimited

The basics atp adp

The Basics: ATP & ADP

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)WATCH VIDEO

  • Tri = 3

  • 3 Phosphates Held Together by High Energy Bonds

  • Highest Energy Bond = Between 2nd & 3rd Phosphate

  • Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP)

    • Di = 2

    • 2 Phosphates Held Together

    • 1 Phosphate Released

      NOTE: Adenosine Monophosphate (AMD)

  • Anaerobic phosphogen

    Anaerobic - Phosphogen

    • 1st System Used (8-10 seconds)

    • Muscles Have Very Few ATP Floating Around (3 seconds worth)

    • Need to Make More ATP to Continue Exercise

    • Creatine Phosphate In Muscles Help

    Anaerobic phosphogen1

    Anaerobic - Phosphogen

    • Phosphate Taken from Creatine Phosphate (Creatine Kinase)

    • Phosphate Added to ADP

    • ADP + Phosphate = ATP

    • Repeats Until ATP & Creatine Phosphate Levels are too Low

    • Process Repeated for 8-10 Seconds, Known As Phosphogen System or ATP-PC System (Adenosine Triphosphate – Phosphate Creatine)

    Anaerobic glycogen lactic acid system

    Anaerobic – Glycogen/Lactic Acid System

    • 2nd System Used (Up to 90 Seconds)

    • Muscles Have Big Reserves of Glycogen

    • Glycogen: Chain of Glucose Molecules

    • Glycogen  Split Into Glucose

    Anaerobic glycogen lactic acid system1

    Anaerobic – Glycogen/Lactic Acid System

    • Glucose  2Pyruvic Acid

    • Phosphates Released from Breakdown to Pyruvic Acid Bonds to ADP to create new ATP.

    • Pyruvic AcidContinues to Breakdown into Lactic

    • Complete Process Involves Several Steps


    Aerobic energy oxidative system

    Aerobic Energy (Oxidative System)

    Three Parts To Aerobic Energy

    • Glycolysis

    • The Krebs Cycle

    • Oxidative Phosphorylation

    Oxidative system glycolysis

    Oxidative System - Glycolysis

    • The Exact Process as the glycogen-lactic acid system (one little difference).

    • Glycogen  Glucose  Phosphates & Pyruvic Acid

    • DIFFERENCE: Pyruvic Acid  actyl coenzyme A (instead of lactic acid)

    • FINAL RESULT:2 ATP & Actyl Coenzyme A (used in the next stage)

    Oxidative system krebs cycle

    Oxidative System – Krebs Cycle

    • Several Chemical Reactions

    • Acetyl Coenzyme A Carbon Dioxide, & Hydrogen

    • Result: 2 ATPS

    • PROBLEM: levels of hydrogen are too acidic for cells

    • SOLUTION: hydrogen bonds with NAD & FAD (enzymes) and transported to the electron transport chain.

    Oxidative system electron transport chain

    Oxidative System – Electron Transport Chain

    • Hydrogen & NAD, FAD  COMBINES WITH OXYGEN (forms water, preventing acid)

    • RESULT: 34 ATP


      TOTAL ATP (from oxidative system)

      2 ATP (Glycolysis) + 2 ATP (Krebs Cycle) +34 ATP (Electron Transport Chain) = 38 ATP Total




    • All the energy systems use glucose to form ATP.

    • Glucose is a carbohydrate (carb).

    • Is it possible to burn fat? If so, how do you burn fat through exercise?



    • Yes, you can burn fat!

    • System #1 - Phosphogen System:NO

    • System #2 - Glycogen-Lactic Acid System:NO

    • System #3 –Oxidative System

      • Glycolysis: NO

      • Krebs Cycle: YES

      • Electron Transport Chain: YES

    Burning fat

    Burning Fat

    • Krebs Cycle & Electron Transport Chain

    • Fat must be broken down: Lipolysis

    • Fat  Glycerol & Fatty Acids

    • Glycerol & Fatty Acids  Acetyl Coenzyme A

      (Beta Oxidation)

    • Same Path the Rest of the Way!

    Fat metabolism

    Fat Metabolism

    • The Breakdown of Fat = more Acetyl Coenzyme A than the breakdown of Carbs.


      1. Fat contains more carbon than Carbs (requires more oxygen).

      2. In high intense exercise, oxygen supply cells quick enough. Thus, carbs must be used for energy.

      3. If carbs get low enough or run out, you will not be able to maintain high intensity levels.
