  • Heart Rate and Physical Activity
    • Working Heart Rate
      • The  amount of times the heart beats per minute whilst the body is working
    • Resting Heart Rate
      • The amount of times the heart beats per minute when the body is at rest
    • Recovery (Heart) Rate
      • The amount of time it takes for the body to go from working heart rate to resting heart rate
    • Maximum Heart Rate
      • Calculated as 220-age
    • Target Zones
      • The range within which an individual needs to work in for aerobic training (60-80% of MHR)
    • Training Thresholds
      • The boundaries of the target zones
    • Aerobic Respiration
      • Exercise in which the heart can supply all the oxygen needed to muscles
    • Anaerobic Respiration
      • Exercise in which the body cannot supply all the oxygen needed to muscles.
      • Usually when exercise is in short, fast bursts. Produces lactic acid.
    • Applied to Methods of Training
      • Interval
        • Heart rate decreases and increases between intervals.
      • Continuous
        • Heart rate increases, but then remains constant.
      • Circuit
        • Fast increase and decrease of heart rate between stations.
