EXERCISE BASICS Nutrition and Exercise Exercise increases energy expenditure   increased energy intake   eating  more food   more nutrients Exercise important for weight control   increases energy expenditure and basal  metabolism by building or maintaining muscle mass Exercise may help regulate appetite and prevent chronic disease The Training Principle Fitness develops as the body adapts to the physical stress of regular exercise Need rest in order to adapt Overtraining - physical state of staleness, tiredness, and even deconditioning  caused by too much training and too little recovery, possibly exacerbated by  inadequate nutrition Types of Exercise Aerobic Exercise Challenge and develop ability of cardiovascular system to deliver oxygen to the  muscles  Increase demand for oxygen through repeated use of large muscle groups

Unformatted text preview: Amount of oxygen used is directly related to energy expenditure, bc oxygen is needed to burn fuels Faster heart rate burn more calories Cardiovascular fitness is successful adaptation to stress of aerobic exercise Any exercise that increases heart rate is aerobic Strength Exercise Isolates muscles and works them intensely Continued to point of failure allows greater load placed on muscle, stimulates greater adaptation and greater strength Requires lower energy expenditure, builds more muscle mass Bigger effect on basal metabolism throughout day Plyometrics- strength training method characterized by rapid stretch of muscle prior to contraction...
