Flashcards in Chapter 8 - Cardiorespiratory Fitness Training Deck (13):
The ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen-rich blood to skeletal muscles during sustained physical activity.
INTEGRATED CARDIORESPIRATORY TRAINING
Cardiorespiratory training programs that systematically progress clients through various stages to achieve optimal levels of physiologic, physical, and performance adaptations by placing stress on the cardiorespiratory system.
GENERAL WARM UP
Low-intensity exercise consisting of movements that do not necessarily relate to the more intense exercise that is to follow.
SPECIFIC WARM UP
Low-intensity exercise consisting of movements that mimic those that will be included in the more intense exercise that is to follow.
The number of training session in a given timeframe.
The level of demand that given activity places on the body.
MAXIMAL OXYGEN CONSUMPTION (VO2 MAX)
THe highest rate of oxygen transport and utilization achieved at maximal physical exertion.
OXYGEN UPTAKE RESERVE (VO2R)
The difference between resting and maximal or peak oxygen consumption.
VENTILATORY THRESHOLD (T vent)
The point during graded exercise in which ventilation increases disproportionately to oxygen uptake, signifying a switch from predominately aerobic energy production to anaerobic energy production.
The length of time an individual is engaged in a given activity.
The type or mode of physical activity that an individual is engaged in.
The amount of pleasure derived from performing a physical activity.
