9 Body Composition  % lean tissue to fat tissue  What is lean tissue?  What do we do that will improve “Body Composition”

10 What is lean tissue?  Muscles  Bones

12 Cardio-respiratory Endurance  Cardio = heart  Respiratory = lungs  Definition: the ability of the heart and lungs to work efficiently for a long period of time  What is the “work” that the heart and lungs do?

13 What is the Work that the Heart and Lungs do?  Pump oxygen to the working muscles

14 Muscle Strength  The power to push, pull or lift  Heavy weights  Just a few times  In the weight room, to develop strength, lift heavy weights 4- 8 repetitions

15 Muscle Endurance  The ability of the muscles to work over a long period of time  In the weight room, lift lighter weights for 12 – 25 repetitions  Aerobic activity will build muscle endurance as you repeat muscle action over a long period of time

16 Flexibility  The ability of the joints to move through the full range of motion  Flexibility increases with stretching!






22 Principle of Specificity 1. Choose a Goal 2. Choose the right activity to meet that goal. 3. What activities will improve the chosen component of fitness?

23 Principle of Progression  The best benefits of exercise are gained when starting slowly and gradually increasing the amount over a period of time.
