Jesse Pereira Dr. Kozlowski HED 337 09/05/18 Bioenergetics- MET Assignment 1)Definition of a MET- A MET is a measurement of an activity of how hard your working. When you are laying down or not moving it is equivalent to one MET. So if something like running is required 5 times the energy it is equivalent to 5 MET. 2) 1 MET- This would be laying or resting. 3) Light intensity- These are defined as 1.1 MET to 2.9 METs. Moderate Intensity- It is defined as 3.0 MET to 5.9 METs. Walking 3.0 miles per hour requires 3.3 METs. Vigorous Intensity- Anything that is defined beyond 6.0 MET or more, Running for 10 minutes at 6 miles per hour that would equal 60 METs. That would be the total for the energy expenditure during the run. 4a) 4.3METs X 25 minutes = 107.5 METS B) 107.5 METs X 4 days a week = 430 METs

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
