1 Chapter Eleven +++ Understanding the Cardiorespiratory System and Cardiorespiratory Training Zones

2  The ability of the body to perform prolonged large-muscle dynamic exercise at a moderate to high level of intensity.  Examples:  walking  jogging  swimming  aerobics CARDIORESPIRATORY ENDURANCE

3 Aerobic & Anaerobic Activity Aerobic activities help improve cardiorespiratory fitness - walking, jogging, running, cycling, swimming, dancing, etc. Anaerobic activities which involve sudden, intensive, explosive muscle contractions can also play a role in cardiorespiratory fitness - sprinting and weight lifting.

4 Understanding the Cardiorespiratory System 1. Cardiorespiratory fitness is considered the most important aspect of physical fitness. 2. Cardiorespiratory fitness enables you to have more energy, a lower level of body fat and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

5  Improved CR functioning  Maintains or increases heart’s own blood and oxygen supply  Stronger, more efficient heart; pumps more with less beats  Lower resting and exercise heart rates  Reduces blood pressure  Improved cellular metabolism  Increase efficiency of muscles use of oxygen and fuel  More and larger mitochondria  Better control of body fat  Improved immune function  Improved psychological and emotional well-being ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF CR ENDURANCE EXERCISE

6  Reduced risk of chronic disease:  Cardiovascular disease (CDV); coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure  Cancer; colon, breast, reproductive organs, lung, pancreatic, etc.  Type 2 diabetes  Osteoporosis; bone loss, especially in women  Deaths from all causes MORE BENEFITS OF CR ENDURANCE EXERCISE

7 Cardiovascular Disease Coronary artery disease AtherosclerosisStroke

8  Atherosclerosis -- sometimes called hardening of the arteries -- can slowly narrow and harden the arteries throughout the body. When atherosclerosis affects the arteries of the heart, it’s called coronary artery disease.  Coronary artery disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans. Most of these deaths are from heart attacks caused by sudden blood clots in the heart’s arteries. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?


10  Circulates blood through the body, transporting oxygen, nutrients and other key substances to the organs and tissue that needs them.  The CR system consists of the heart, blood vessels and respiratory system. The Cardiorespiratory System

11  Venae cavae = large veins of the heart through which the blood is returned to the right atrium of the heart  Atria = the heart’s upper chambers where blood passes through to the ventricles  Ventricle = the heart’s lower chambers from which blood flows through arteries to the lungs and other body parts  Aorta = the body’s largest artery, receives blood from left ventricle and distributes to the rest of the body’s blood vessels Anatomy of the Heart


13  Consists of: the lungs, air passages, and breathing muscles  FUNCTIONS:  Supplies oxygen to the body  Carries off carbon dioxide  Helps regulate acid produced by metabolism.  Alveoli = tiny air sacs in the lungs that allow the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the lungs and the blood. THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

15 Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease ä Heredity (Race) ä Age ä Gender (male or female) Uncontrollable Risk Factors

16 Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease ä Smoking ä High Blood Pressure ä Unhealthy Cholesterol Levels ä Improving your Blood Fat Levels ä Lack of Physical Activity ä Obesity ä Diabetes Controllable Risk Factors

17 Methods of Monitoring Intensity ä Exercise Heart Rate ä Talk Test ä Rate of Perceived Exertion ä Heart Rate Monitors ä Apps ä Cardio Machines with Heart Rate Monitors

18 TRAINING ZONES ä Zone 1= Healthy Heart = 50 – 60% THR ä Zone 2 = Fat Burning = 60 – 70% THR ä Zone 3 = Aerobic Zone = 70 – 80% THR ä Zone 4 = Anaerobic Threshold = 80 – 90% THR ä Zone 5 = Red Line Zone = 90 – 100% THR

19 THE KARVONEN METHOD!!! Minimum Training Heart Rate: (Age) = (Rest. HR) = x.60 (Min. Intensity) + 65 (Rest. HR) = 143 Beats/Minute Maximum Training Heart Rate: (Age) = (Rest. HR) = x.70 (Max. Intensity) + 65 (Rest. HR) = 156 Beats/Minute His training heart rate zone will therefore be beats per minute.
