Week #4-Biomechanics-The study of human movement and how such movement is influenced by gravity, friction, and the laws of motion. It involves the analysis of force, including muscle force that produces movements and impact force that may cause injuries. It explains why motor skills are performed in explicit ways in order to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
Week #3-Velocity--the speed of something in a given direction. synonyms:speed, pace, rate, tempo, momentum.
Week #2-Aesthetics-The understanding and appreciation of beauty in human movement.
Week #1-Type 2 diabetes-Is a long term metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin.
Week #10-Set-A set is the number of cycles of reps that you complete. For example, suppose you complete 15 reps of a bench press. You would say you've completed "one SET of 15 reps.
Week #9-Repetition-A "rep" is the number of times you perform a specific exercise. Example: "I just did 10 push ups" 10 is the amount of "reps"
Week #8-Nutrients-a food or biochemical substance used by the body that must be supplied in adequate amounts from foods consumed.
Week #7-Calorie- a unit of heat used to indicate the amount of energy that foods will produce in the human body. You should try to eat fewer calories [=eat less food with high calories] and exercise more.
Week #6-Abdominal-Anything abdominal relates to the midsection of your body, just below your chest and above your pelvis. Abdominal muscles are sometimes called “abs” and they’re the muscles in your abdomen.
Week #5-Portion-an amount of food served for one person; serving; helping.
Week #4-Metabolism-the chemical processes by which a plant or an animal uses food, water, etc., to grow and heal and to make energy
Week #3-Target Heart Rate Zone (THRZ)-A safe range of activity intensity that can be used to enhance the level of aerobic capacity. This level of intensity can be determined using a formula based on the maximum heart rate of 220.
Week #2-Muscle Strength-The ability of a muscle to exert force against a resistance one time. Strength is measured as the amount of force a muscle can produce.
Week #1-Muscle Endurance-The ability to contract the muscles many times without tiring or the ability to hold one contraction for an extended period of time.
Week #6-Hydrated-to supply the body with sufficient amounts of fluid or moisture (water) so as to avoid headaches and muscle cramps.
Week #5-Vigorous Physical Activity—Vigorous-intensity physical activity generally requires sustained, rhythmic movements and refers to a level of effort a healthy individual might expend while, for example, jogging, participating in high-impact aerobic dancing, swimming continuous laps, or bicycling uphill. Vigorous-intensity physical activity may be intense enough to result in a significant increase in heart and respiration rate.
Week #4-Moderate Physical Exercise- any activity that gets you moving fast enough or strenuously enough to burn off three to six times as much energy per minute as you do when you are sitting quietly. Examples: Power walking, jogging, cycling, swimming.
Week #3-Physical Activity-Bodily movement that is produced by the contraction of skeletal muscle and that substantially increases energy expenditure, including exercise, sport, dance, and other movement forms.
Week #2-Healthy Fitness Zone-(HFZ)- If children are in the Healthy Fitness Zone they are considered to have sufficient fitness for good health.
Week #1-Cardiovascular endurance-A component of health-related fitness that describes the ability of the heart, blood vessels, and respiratory system to supply oxygen and nutrients to the muscles during exercise.
