  1. What is the most important muscle in the human body? Hint: Without it, we would die instantly!

  2. The Heart

  3. FACT: CV DISEASE IS THE #1 KILLER! PREVENTION: EXERCISE AT A YOUNG AGE

  4. Cardiovascular Endurance The ability to persist in physical activities that rely on the HEART, BLOOD VESSELS, and LUNGS to supply oxygen to the working muscles.

  5. Characteristics of Cardiovascular Activities • Large Muscle Groups • Rhythmic • Continuous • Aerobic Examples: Swimming, Biking, Running, X-Country Skiing, Rollerblading

  6. Why cardiovascular fitness??? • Stronger Heart • Decreased Blood Pressure • Decreased Body Fat • Improved Circulation • Faster Recovery Time • Pumps More Blood Per Beat • Less Risk Of CV Disease

  7. 3 Ways To Vary Activity F.I.T. PRINCIPLE Frequency - How often Intensity - How hard Time - How long

  8. FREQUENCY How often you workout. Should be a minimum of 3 days per week.

  9. INTENSITY How hard you work out. Heart Rate should be 60%-85% between your resting heart rate and your maximum heart rate

  10. TIME In order to improve our cardiovascular fitness, aerobic activity should last at least… 20 Minutes

  11. Cardiovascular Progression

  12. What does your heart rate during exercise tell you about your fitness level?

  13. AEROBIC VS ANAEROBIC

  14. AEROBIC Moderate exercise over an extended period of time (with oxygen).

  15. ANAEROBIC Short bursts of intense exercise. *Uses energy stored in the muscle

  16. When we exercise to benefit our cardiovascular fitness which metabolism would we want to use? Anaerobic Aerobic

  17. In order to use aerobic metabolism, we must exercise at the proper intensity. The best way to measure our intensity level during cardiovascular activity is with our heart rate.

  18. Target Heart Rate The rate at which your heart should beat during exercise. 60% - 85% of Heart Rate Range

  19. STEPS TO FIGURING T.H.R. 1. 220 - Age = Max Heart Rate (MHR) 2. Max HR - Resting HR = Heart Rate Range (HRR) 3. Rest HR + (HRR x .60) = Lower Limit 4. Rest HR + (HRR x .85) = Upper Limit

  20. EXAMPLE T.H.R. PROBLEM 1. 220 - 20 = 200 (MHR) 2. 200 - 60 = 140 (HRR) 3. 60 + (140 x .60) = 144 (Low Limit) 4. 60 + (140 x .85) = 179 (Upper Limit) THR = 144 - 179

  21. SHORT CUT METHOD Max X .70 = Lower Limit Max X .90 = Upper Limit
