4. Cardiovascular Endurance Ability to take in & deliver oxygen efficiently. You can increase endurance through regular (3-4x) week, aerobic exercise at least (20-30) minute duration. Examples of aerobic exercise- jump-rope, running, aerobics, stair master, biking, etc. (weight training is not considered aerobic). 5. Body Composition Body Composition is the measure of what your body is composed of. It is measured by means of a skin fold caliper. This instrument takes your body fat %, & by calculation you can figure out how many lb’s of fat you are composed of & how may lb’s of lean body mass you are. From these #’s, one can monitor what they are gaining & losing in terms of fat & muscle. Adding muscle to your body by weight training can change body Composition. This not only adds muscle, but helps an individual burn fat at the same time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
