10 points class participation
Due: Monday, August 26
Introduction: In its most basic sense, exercise and sport physiology is the study of how the body responds, adjusts, and adapts to physical activity or exercise. Whether you've exercised on your own or played on a sports team, you have probably recognized some of these changes without realizing you were thinking about physiology.
Instructions: You will perform an exercise bout that will include a warm-up, short workout, and cool-down period. Pay close attention to any physiological adjustments made by your body systems (specifically those listed below). Although some of the adjustments cannot be observed visually, hypothesize about what might be occurring throughout the activity. After you have completed the course, we will ...view middle of the document...
The back of my head begins to itch due to the beta aline.
* Work-out- The muscles that I am working out are filling with blood causing my skin to feel tight. My muscles feel like they are on fire during my sets. My veins continue to dilate and pop out when I’m doing sets, so I’m sure my blood pressure is rising.
* Cool-down- Muscles feel warm and still filled with blood. The muscles feel tight but get more pliable with stretching.
* Warm – up- My heart rate increases from 135-155
* Work-out-- heart rate stays above 155 and peaks to 183.
* Cool-down- heart slowly recovers to 120
c. Temperature regulation - sweating
* Warm – up- no sweating
* Work-out- as my workout progresses I start to excessively sweat, I think it is a side- effect of the preworkout supplement.
* Cool-down- extreme sweating, almost as if in a sauna.
d. Respiratory system
* Warm – up- breathing increases but only a little
* Work-out- during and just after my sets I breath heavily but recover quite quickly before starting on my next set
* Cool-down- breathing slows quickly until its back to resting
Now take a moment to think about the graphic pattern for each of the following variables that were affected by the exercise activity. Draw a graphic pattern that would best represent the exercise response for each of the variables. (Use the space below to draw each graphic pattern.)
* Heart Rate Response (Ch. 13)
* Oxygen Consumption Response (Ch. 5)
* Blood Pressure Response (Ch. 13)
1. Would these responses be different between a fit and unfit individual? Why? or Why not?
Through this course, you will learn the detailed answers to these questions. Physiology of Exercise will take you on a fascinating journey of how your body responds and adapts to exercise and what factors affect those adaptations.
