  27. the diff between maximum and resting heart rate
  28. working hard enough to raise your heart rate and break a sweat, yet still being able to carry on a conversation. It should be noted that to lose weight or maintain weight loss, 60-90 min of physical activity may be necessary. The 30 min recommendation is for the avg healthy adult to maintain health and reduce the risk for chronic disease
  29. any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that requires energy expenditure
  30. for treatment of allergic conditions
  31. means working hard at about a level -six intensity on a scale of 10. You should still be able to carry on a conversation during exercise. Older adults or adults with chronic conditions should develop an activity plan with a health professional to manage risks and take therapeutic needs into account. This will maximize the benefits of physical activity and ensure your safety.
  32. high amounts of habitual activity/regular vigorous exercise
  33. physiological changes which occur due to exercise
    -do not occur at a constant rate, there is a window of adaptation
    -window is smaller for trained individuals, larger for untrained individuals.
  34. heart rate at all out effort commonly estimated by subtracting age from 220
  35. -onset angina
    -abnormal bp
    -shortness of breath
    -signs of poor perfusion (light headedness, confusion, cold or clammy hands)
    -failure of heart rate to increase w/ increased exercise intensity
    -noticeable change in heart rhythm
    -subject requests to stop
    -physical or verbal signs of severe fatigue
    -failure of the testing equipment
  36. -do mod. intense aerobic exercise 30 min a day, 5 days a week or; do vig. intense aerobic exercise 20 min a day, 3 days a week. And do 8-10 strength-training exercises, 10-15 reps of each exercise twice or three times a week. And if you are at risk of falling, perform balance exercises and have a physical activity plan
  37. -The purpose of the test: use recovery HR to estimate cardiovascular fitness level
    -The benefits of the test: use this info to design an appro. cardio program
    -The procedure: step up and down on a bench for 3 min
