BI Ⅲ. Background Information Running Physical Fitness Benefits of Exercise Calories Burned During Exercise
BI_running1 Running Running has been around as long as humans have, but it did not become a popular activity for the masses until the 1970s. American physician Kenneth Cooper’s book Aerobics (1968) is considered one of the first inspirations for this growth. The book demonstrated the considerable health gains that could be derived from regular workouts that emphasized cardiovascular fitness. Other people credit American Frank Shorter and his gold medal in the marathon at the 1972 Olympics with sparking a surge of interest in running. In the years following his win, a number of books and periodicals devoted to running emerged.
BI_running1 Today running is firmly established as both a recreational pursuit and a training tool; it is practiced by millions of people to get in shape, stay fit, and have fun. There are many different kinds of runners, from casual joggers to regular race runners to ultra marathoners who run 100 miles at a time. Each runner should have a specific training regimen tailored to the individual’s goals and abilities. A good schedule for a beginner is to run 20 minutes at a time, every other day. Occasionally, additional time off is needed because of illness or injury. Depending on the length of the break, it is often advisable to work back into a regular workout gradually, rather than jumping back into the normal routine immediately.
BI_running2 In the short term, there are techniques that can help a runner perform better. Mixing in higher speed workouts is one strategy, but this can lead to injury unless the individual builds up to them gradually. Hill and trail running builds strength, and weightlifting can also help. Massage and whirlpools can help muscles recover faster between workouts. A healthy diet is also beneficial. Some distance runners find that eating foods high in carbohydrates (such as pasta) in the days before a big race provides their bodies with more fuel. Many runners will at some point want to enter a race, to push themselves and to perhaps see how they compare with other runners at their age and experience level. Many areas have a variety of local 5-or 10-km (3.1mi or 6.2mi) road runs.
BI_running3 To finish a 5-kilometer (or 5K) race, the runner should be able to run up to 30 minutes at a time in training.
Physical Fitness BI_Physcial fitness Physical fitness is the ability of the human body to function with vigor and alertness, without undue fatigue, and with ample energy to engage in leisure activities, and to meet physical stresses. The level of physical fitness can be influenced by regular, systematic exercise. Exercises that demand total body involvement improve and maintain fitness most effectively-for example, jogging, running, swimming, vigorous dancing, cycling, and brisk walking. Normal, healthy individuals may plan their own exercise programs. The general rule is to exercise only until discomfort is experienced-that is, until breathing becomes labored, circulation seems inadequate, or
BI_Physcial fitness fatigue influences performance. People with health problems People with health problems caused by heart attacks, strokes, and illness should see a physician before devising an exercise program. Proper nutrition is also important to physical fitness, because energy expenditure depends on nutrition. If diet is inadequate, the fitness level will drop.
BI_Benefits of Exercise1 Benefits of Exercise The benefits of exercise are far reaching. Studies have demonstrated that regular aerobic exercise reduces the risk of death due to heart disease and stroke, aids in reducing weight, helps prevent diabetes mellitus, strengthens bones, and enhances immune function. The psychological benefits are also broad, and most studies suggest a positive relationship between physical fitness and mental achievement. The relationship between regular aerobic exercise and cardiovascular health and longevity is well established. Regular exercise leads to a reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease, in which fatty deposits (plaque) form in blood
BI_Benefits of Exercise1 vessels supplying the muscular wall of the heart, compromising oxygen delivery to the heart muscle. In addition, with regular exercise the efficiency of the heart during exercise is increased. Many people exercise to lose weight. A calorie is a unit that measures the energy content of foods and the energy expenditure by the body. When the daily calorie intake from food is the same as calories expended from exercise, weight remains the same. The number of calories burned during exercise varies greatly with the type of physical activity, but the key to successful weight reduction is to exercise regularly, without increasing food intake proportionally.
BI_Benefits of Exercise2 One area of controversy has been how much exercise is enough to improve general health, reduce the risk of heart disease, and increase longevity. Meaningful studies on this topic are very difficult to perform because they require large populations of subjects and many years of data collection, and because poor health sometimes results in limitations to physical activity. Despite these difficulties, it is clear that regular exercise, along with a generally healthy lifestyle, is beneficial. People who have sedentary lifestyles make up half the population of industrialized societies, and this group has the most to gain by exercising.
BI_Calories Burned During Exercise1 Calories Burned During Exercise The table below shows calories burned per hour for different activities. The amount of calories used during physical activity depends on a person’s body mass and the intensity of the activity.
