What is the difference between transient and
What is the difference between f
Lecture 8: Principles of Exercise Training
What is the difference between muscular strength,
power, and endurance?
What is Aerobic power?
Define strength. What is the 1-repetition maximum?
What is power? What factors are necessary to
Lecture 7: Cardiorespiratory
Responses to Exercise
How are the following factors affected by exercise?
Heart rate (HR)
Stroke volume (SV)
Cardiac output (Q)
Blood pressure (BP)
Blood /plasma volume
What happens to stroke volume and heart
Part 6: Respiratory System
Define the terms: pulmonary ventilation, pulmonary
diffusion, capillary diffusion, inspiration, and expiration.
What muscle groups are active during regular breathing?
What additional muscles are used during f
Lecture 12: Body Composition and Nutrition
What are the different nutrients needed by the
body? What are the roles of carbohydrates, fats
and proteins in the sports diet? What is the
glycemic index and how is it determined?
What are some of the vital func
Lecture 11: Training for Sport
You should be familiar with the sequence of different training
Undertraining, acute overload training, overreaching, and overtraining.
What are the physical adaptations that may/or may not occur with each
Part 10: Aerobic and Anaerobic Training
What are the 6 cardiovascular adaptations to
training discussed in chapter 10?
What is the underlying change(s) responsible
for each adaptation? How would you chart
and recognize the differences in
Lecture 5: Cardiovascular System
Review the structure and function of the heart, vascular
system, and blood
Explore the role of the cardiovascular system in
delivering oxygen and nutrients to active body tissues
Discover how the cardiovascular system r
Lecture 4: Energy Expenditure and
How is energy expenditure measured?
Why is it important to measure the volume of oxygen and
carbon dioxide that is taken up/given off during exercise?
What is the respiratory exchange ratio (RER)?
What factors aff
Lecture 3: Metabolism and
The energy we derive from food is stored in cells in the
form of adenosine triphosphase (ATP)
ATP serves as the immediate source of energy for most
body functions including muscle contraction
ATP > ADP + Pi + Ene
What are the important structures of a typical neuronal
Define a resting potential and action potential. What is
the importance of each with regard to a nerve impulse.
What are the basic structures of the nervous system?
