How is fitness profiles measured?
Measured by strength, speed, agility and flexibility, together with stamina.
1 of 7
What is stamina?
Stamina is a good indication of cardiovascular efficiency (ability of the heart to supply the muscles with oxygen). Tested by measuring oxygen uptake during exercise and blood pressure.
2 of 7
SIMPLE. Blood is pumped around by the body contractions of the heart BUT what do the contractions do to the pressure of the blood?
Contractions INCREASE the blood pressure.
3 of 7
The blood leaves the heart and flows through the arteries. These split into thousands of tiny capillaries which take blood to every cells in the body. What then happens to the blood after this process and what happens to the blood pressure?
The blood flows back to the heart through the veins and the blood pressure gets lower as the blood flows through the body.
4 of 7
What's blood pressure measured in?
mm of mercury (mmHg).
5 of 7
What happens if the blood pressure is too high?
The blood vessels could burst, and this can lead to strokes, brain damage and kidney damage.
6 of 7
Opposite, what happens if the blood pressure is too low?
It could cause poor circulation and tissues don't get all the food and oxygen they need.
