  • Fitness and blood pressure
  • healthy means being free of any infections or diseases, whereas being fit is a measure of how well you can perform doing physical tasks
    • Fitness and blood pressure
  • fitness profiles measure, strength, speed, agility, and flexibility, together with stamina
    • healthy means being free of any infections or diseases, whereas being fit is a measure of how well you can perform doing physical tasks
    • stamina is a good indication of cardio vascular endurance
      • fitness profiles measure, strength, speed, agility, and flexibility, together with stamina
      • blood is pumped around the body by contractions of the heart, they increase blood pressure
        • Blood flow system
          • blood is pumped around the body by contractions of the heart, they increase blood pressure
          • Heart
          • Arteries
            • all cells in body
          • veins transfer blood
            • Heart
          • clockwise
          • the pressure gets lower as the blood flows through the system , its at its highest when the heart contracts, this is known as systolic pressure. diastolic pressure is when pressure is at its lowest, when the heart is relaxed
            • blood pressure is measured in mm of mercury mmHg
            • other factors that increase high blood pressure are..
            • smoking , being overweight, drinking too much alcahol and being under lots of stress for long periods of time
              • other factors that increase high blood pressure are..
