This affected me during the bleep test because vasodilation allows more oxygenated blood to travel to the actively respiring muscle tissues. Other acute responses which occur to the musculoskeletal system during exercise include an increase in muscle pliability. If your muscles get warmer because of the contraction temperature is going to rise this makes them more pliable and reduces the risk of injury. Pliability is the stretchiness of the muscles. There is also an increase in the synovial fluid at the joint.

For example, regular brisk walking can help you: • Maintain a healthy weight • Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes • Strengthen your bones • Lift your mood • Improve your balance and coordination The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits. Walking and biking are both excellent forms of cardiovascular exercise which, when performed regularly, can ward off disease, shed pounds, improve mental outlook and reduce the likelihood of dying young. Each have their merits and drawbacks, and which is the best choice for you largely depends upon what you'll enjoy doing most, the health of your joints and how much weight you'd like to lose. “Like walking, biking is low-impact and easy. It's also fun, and according to NutriStrategy, burns a lot of calories - significantly more than brisk walking.” (Bigelow) You’d be forgiven for wondering but stair climbing can have a significant and positive impact on an individual’s health over time.
● What were two positive aspects of the diet? Learning healthier habits and No food restrictions ● Were there any downsides to the diet plan? Explain.

Cardiovascular system has three main functions: Transport of nutrients, oxygen and hormones to cells throughout our body and removal of metabolic wastes such as (carbon dioxide and nitrogenous wastes). Protections of the human body by while blood cells, antibodies and complement proteins that circulate in the blood and defend our body against foreign microbes and toxic. Clotting mechanisms are also present that protect the human body from blood loss after injuries. Regulation of body temperature, fluid pH and water content of
In an unfeasible attempt I will try to cover the extraordinary number of benefits of weight training within this paper. Weight training or also known as resistance or strength training is defined as “involving the voluntary activation of specific skeletal muscles against some form of external resistance, which is provided by body mass, free weights, or a variety of exercise modalities” (Winett et al, 2001). Weight training is effective for developing fitness, health, and for the prevention of disease and injury. Don’t take it from just me it is promoted by major health organizations for example American College of sports Medicine, American Heart Association, American Association of Cardiovascular and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and Surgeon General’s Office. Benefits have been found so vital in recent years that these major health organizations have set guidelines for all people from healthy adults to someone who lives a sedentary life style or even elderly.
You create slight injuries to the fibres of your muscle tissue as you exercise. These injuries makes your body to adjust and change by building back bigger and stronger fibres as the area get better through a process called hypertrophy. Overtime, these internal changes can be seen apparently as bigger muscles, particularly if weight is placed on pectorals, abdominals, arm muscles like biceps and triceps, and leg muscles.

Anaerobic system may be used to help increase energy without having to increase the use of oxygen. * Enhance Physical Adaptation * In my training program the beginning aerobic exercise and the climax of the program are my greatest concern. The aerobic exercises are where I will be able to control my current weight.
