Fitness and Blood pressure
Healthy: Means not having any illness or disease
Fitness: how well you can perform physical tasks
BLOOD PRESSURE : Healthy pressure is around 135 over 85
Systolic Pressure- Highest pressure (heart contracts)
Diastolic Pressure-Lowest pressure (heart relaxes)
High Blood Pressure: Caused By:
-TOO much Alchol and Salt ,being overweight, being under lots of stress ,not doing enough exercise
Can Cause:-Strokes,Brain Damage,kidney Damage
Low Blood Pressurecan cause:Bad Circulation >Tissues don't get oxygen needed-->dizzyness and Fainting
IT'S NOT breathing IN and OUT...
Respiration is the process of releasing Energy from Glucose, which happens constantly in EVERY CELL.
There are two types--> Aerobic Respiration (Using Oxygen) and Anaerobic Respiration (not using oxygen)
Aerobic Respiration :Is the most efficient way of releasing energy from Glucose:
Glucose + Oxygen --> Carbon Dioxide and Water (+energy)
C6H12O6 +6O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O (+energy)
Anaerobic Respiration - This creates Lactic acid which can be painful.
Glucose --> Lactic Acid (+energy)
This also builds up oxygen debt so people have to breathe heavily when they stop exercising/ get oxygen
Balanced Diet: SIX essential nutrients
-Carbohydrates- made of simple sugars
