CARDIORESPIRATORY FITNESS

The ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen-rich blood to skeletal muscles during sustained physical activity.

1

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.

2

GENERAL WARM UP

Low-intensity exercise consisting of movements that do not necessarily relate to the more intense exercise that is to follow.

3

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.

4

FREQUENCY

The number of training session in a given timeframe.

5

INTENSITY

The level of demand that given activity places on the body.

6

MAXIMAL OXYGEN CONSUMPTION (VO2 MAX)

THe highest rate of oxygen transport and utilization achieved at maximal physical exertion.

7

OXYGEN UPTAKE RESERVE (VO2R)

The difference between resting and maximal or peak oxygen consumption.

8

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.

9

TIME

The length of time an individual is engaged in a given activity.

10

TYPE

The type or mode of physical activity that an individual is engaged in.

11

ENJOYMENT

The amount of pleasure derived from performing a physical activity.

12

OVERTRAINING

Excessive frequency, volume, or intensity of training, resulting in fatigue (which is also caused by a lack of proper rest and recovery).
