F.H.S. Freshmen P.E. Fitness Unit #2: Cardiovascular Endurance Rev:8-02 SJH

What is Cardiovascular Endurance? Cardiovascular endurance is the ability of the heart, lungs, and circulatory system to work together

Cardiovascular Endurance Frequency It is recommended to perform Cardiovascular Exercise 3-5 days a week

Cardiovascular Endurance Intensity To determine how hard you need to exercise when training your cardiovascular endurance you must first figure out your Maximum Heart Rate Maximum Heart Rate Definition: The highest heart rate for a person, related to age

Finding your Maximum Heart Rate Your Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) depends on your age. You can find out what it is by taking 220 and subtracting your age. Here is an example for a 15 year-old student: 220-15=??? 205, is the maximum heart rate

Finding The Correct Intensity Cardiovascular development occurs between 70 Percent (the lower limit) and 90 Percent (the upper limit) of your Maximum Heart Rate You then use these limits to determine your Target Heart Rate Zone (THRZ) (which is what we use for our heart rate monitors) Your target heart rate zone (THRZ) is how many beats per minute your heart should be beating at while exercising

Finding the Target Heart Rate Zone (The Quick Way) Here is an example of finding the Target Heart Rate Zone of a 15 year-old student: MHR: 220-15 = 205 Lower Limit: 70% of 205 = 143.5.70 X 205 = 143.5 Upper Limit: 90% of 205 = 184.5.90 X 205 = 184.5 So the Target Heart Rate Zone for this student is 143.5 to 184.5 beats per minute

Resting Heart Rate (RHR) Resting Heart Rate Definition: Heart Rate after a person has been sitting quietly for 15-20 minutes The best time to find your resting heart rate is when you first wake up in the morning To do this we will need to learn how to take our pulse

Finding your Pulse (Radial Artery) This can be done on the wrist by placing two fingers over the radial artery (inside the wrist on the side of the thumb)

Finding your Pulse (Carotid Artery) Or we can use the carotid artery in the neck just below the jaw
