1

Cardiorespiratory activity

Sustained physical activities that require the circularory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen to muscles- exercise that increases heart rate for at least 20 minutes

2

Target heart rate zone

A range from 50% to 85% of a person's maximum heart rate; the exercise intensity that gains the maximum training benefits from an aerobic workout

3

Blood

Brings each cell the oxygen and nutrients it needs to survive while removing waste products

4

Muslces

Use oxygen for energy production, producing carbon dioxide in the process

5

Heart

Pumps continuously to keep blood flowing through all of the blood vessels in the body

6

Healthy diet and exercise

Keep the heart healthy

7

Aerobic activity

"With oxygen"
Muscles use oxygen to break down glucose as an energy source
I.e.Long duration endurance activities longer than 2 minutes - cycling, walking

8

Anaerobic activity

"Without oxygen"
Muscles rely on other energy sources
I.e. Short and intense activities under 2 minutes - sprinting, max weight lifting

9

Cariorespiratory activities include

Running, cycling, swimming, dancing, walking briskly, paddle boarding, doggy-paddling, spin class, mowing he lawn, cross country skiing, rowing, elliptical machine, roller blading

10

Resting heart rate

the number of times a person's heart beats per minute while at complete rest

11

Arteries used to measure heart rate

Radial (wrist) and carotid (neck)

12

Technology to monitor heart rate

Built-in sensors
Wrst monitor
Chest straps
All-inclusive

13

Built-in sensor

On treadmills and other cardio machines on handles or side rails

14

Wrist monitors

Monitor heart rate and steps

15

Chest straps

Can work in coordination with wrist monitors to measure heart rate and track THRZ

16

All-inclusive

Use GPS to track distance and speed and monitor heart rate to compare to THR

17

If heart rate is lower than THRZ,

Increase intensity of cardiovascular activity

18

If heart rate is higher than THRZ,

Lower intensity of exercise

19

Recovery heart rate

The rate at which the heart beats immediately following a period of exercise

20

Five minutes after exercise

120 bpm or less

21

Ten minutes after exercise

100 bpm or less

22

Wendy plans to run her first 5k in two months, and she needs to prepare. She has a busy schedule, though, and needs to select the best activity for her heart health. Which activity should Wendy pick?

Ten push-ups and five sit-ups

Ten minutes of swimming

Twenty-five minutes of yoga and 10 push-ups

Twenty-five minutes of zumba

Twenty-five minutes of zumba

23

Which of the following technologies can work with another portable device to monitor your THRZ?

Bathroom scale

Heart pills

Chest straps

Digital pedometer

Chest straps

24

Sandra's target heart rate zone is 135bpm–172bpm. Marissa's target heart rate zone is 143bpm–176bpm. They stop playing basketball and take their pulse, and both count the heart rate at 144bpm. If they decrease their heart rates by 20bpm, who will be in her THR zone?

Sandra only

Marissa only

Both Sandra and Marissa

Neither Sandra nor Marissa

Neither Sandra nor Marissa

25

For Yoko's physical fitness class, she is supposed to do a certain amount of aerobic exercise on her own. Which of the following would be the best option?

Sit-ups

Push-ups

Lifting weights

Dancing

Dancing

26

Tammy is using a treadmill, and when she puts her hands on the bar, sensors read her heart rate. Today, the sensors are telling Tammy that she is reaching 183, which is the highest rate in her target zone. What should she do to get the most effective workout?

Increase her running speed without adjusting the incline

Use the machine to maintain or decrease her intensity

Do additional aerobic exercises immediately after the treadmill

Use the machine to increase the incline and intensity

Use the machine to maintain or decrease her intensity
