Motivating yourself to move l.jpg
Motivating Yourself to Move

  • Sign up for a fitness class.

  • Go to the gym with friends.

  • Find a fun workout.

  • Join a team – or root for one.

  • Do double-duty.

Strategies for Change, pg. 109

The principles of exercise l.jpg
The Principles of Exercise

  • Overload Principle

    • Progressive overloading

  • FITT Principle

    • Frequency, Intensity, Time, Type

  • Reversibility Principle

    • Opposite of the overload principle

  • Individuality

  • Cross-Training

Aerobic activities l.jpg
Aerobic Activities

Aerobic Exercise

Physical activity in which sufficient or excess oxygen is continually supplied to the body.


  • Brisk walking, jogging, swimming, cycling, water aerobics, and rope skipping.

  • Improves cardiorespiratory endurance.

Anaerobic activities l.jpg
Anaerobic Activities

Anaerobic Exercise

Physical activity in which the body develops an oxygen deficit.


  • Sprinting, weight lifting

  • High intensity activities of short duration, usually lasting only about 10 seconds to 2 minutes.

Target heart rate for different ages and various levels of activity l.jpg
Target Heart Rate for Different Ages and Various Levels of Activity

Long Term Plan

Beginning (4-6 weeks)

Progression (16-20 weeks)

Maintenance (lifelong)

Aerobic options l.jpg
Aerobic Options

  • Stepping Out: Walk the Walk

    • American on the Move

      • 10,000 steps or 5 miles per day.

  • Jogging and Running

    • Distance vs. interval training

  • Swimming

    • At least 20 minutes per session.

    • Note: your heart beats more slowly in water than on land.

  • Cycling

    • Target heart rate for at least 20 minutes.

    • Be safe.

Other aerobic activities l.jpg
Other Aerobic Activities


Cardio Kickboxing


Skipping Rope

Aerobic Dancing

Inline Skating


Building muscular fitness l.jpg
Building Muscular Fitness

Muscular Fitness

Muscular Strength

The maximal force that a muscle

or group of muscles can generate

for one movement

Muscular Endurance

The capacity to sustain repeated

muscle actions

Slide31 l.jpg

Strength workouts increase circulation

Strength workouts build muscles

The heart’s right half pumps oxygen-poor blood to capillary beds in lungs. There, O2 diffuses into blood and CO2 diffuses out. The oxygenated blood flows into the heart’s left half where it is then pumped to capillary beds throughout the body.

Benefits of Strength Training the Body

Outer sheath of connective tissue muscle (toughened by strength workouts)

Bundles of muscle cells surrounded by

connective tissue (more connective

tissue develops from strength workouts)


Capillary bed before

strength workouts

Capillary bed after 8–12 weeks of strength workouts

(extra capillaries develop, circulation increases)

Core strength conditioning l.jpg
Core Strength Conditioning

Core Strength:

  • The ability of the muscles to support your spine and keep your body stable and balanced.


  • Improvements in posture, breathing, appearance, and performance in sports, while reducing your risk of muscle strain.

    Muscles of the Core:

  • Transverse abdominus; external and internal obliques; rectus abdominus.

Strategies for prevention back talk l.jpg

When Standing:

Shift your weight from one foot to the other or place your foot 4 to 6 inches off the ground.

Hold in your stomach.

Tilt your pelvis toward your back.

Tuck in your buttocks.

When Sitting:

Sit in a straight chair with a firm back.

Avoid slouching.

When Driving:

When Sleeping:

Sleep on a flat, firm mattress.

Sleep on your side with both knees bent at right angles to your torso.

Keep your head on your pillow in such a manner that it is in line with your body.

When Lifting:

Bend at the knees, not from the waist.

Get close to the load.

Tighten your stomach muscles and don’t hold your breath.

Let your leg muscles do the work.

Don’t Smoke!

Body composition l.jpg
Body Composition

Body Mass Index (BMI)

  • A mathematical formula that correlates with body fat; the ratio of weight to height squared.

    • Healthy: 18.5 to 24.9

    • Overweight: BMI > 25.0-29.9

      • Associated with an increased risk of diseases such as Hypertension, cardiovascular disease, adult-onset diabetes (type 2), and sleep.

    • Obesity: BMI >30.0-39.9

      • Associated with an increased risk of death.

    • Morbid Obesity: >40.0

How to Buy Athletic Shoes

Well-molded Achilles pad prevents irritation of Achilles tendon

Well-padded tongue prevents extensor

tendonitis and irritation of dorsum of foot

Laces not too long so they stay tied longer

Firm heel counter for hindfoot stability

Flared heel stability and beveled or rounded heel for

quick roll-off

Studded sole absorbs shock and provides traction in mud and snow

Soft, raised heel wedge to absorb impact at heel strike

Flexible midsole helps prevent Achilles tendon problems

High rounded toe box

(at least 1 1/2” in. high) prevents sublungual hematomas

(“black toes”)

Sports nutrition how much water should i drink while exercising l.jpg
