When exercising the cardiovascular system has different functions during exercise , such as it delivers oxygen to working muscles, oxygenates blood by returning it to the lungs, transports heat from the core to the skin, it delivers nutrients and fuel to active tissues and I also transports hormones . Exercising is known as an increased demand on the cardiovascular system. Oxygen demand by the muscles increases sharply. Metabolic processes speeds up and more waste is created. More nutrients are used and body temperature rises.
All this leads to an increase in the a-Vo2 max level of the body. Respiratory Adaptations – The respiratory response to exercise is substantially changed by endurance training. The amount of O2 inhaled and the CO2 exhaled is increased. A higher respiration rate would not only give more O2 but also get rid of more CO2.Endurance training would increase the cappilirazation around t alveoli therby helping to increase the rate of O2 exchanged and CO2 removal. Neuromuscular Adaptations – There would be an increase in be glycogen stores in the muscles, increase in I2 through higher concentration of capillaries, hemoglobin and myoglobin as well as the size and number of mitochondria where muscular
Controlled Variables: frequency of stimulation; stimulation voltage; temperature Effect of Stimulation Frequency on Contraction 1. Dependent Variable: contraction force 2. Independent Variable: frequency of stimulation 3. Controlled Variables: stimulation voltage; temperature 4. What structure was stimulated to cause a muscle contraction?
Running Head: GROUND REACTION FORCES Factors Effecting Ground Reaction Forces during Running Abstract Previous studies have suggested that the biomechanical and metabolic demands of human running are directly affected by velocity and body weight. As runners increase speed, or velocity, ground reaction forces increase linearly as well. This is a concern because this increase in ground reaction forces can cause overuse injuries to the lower extremities. The purpose of this research is to find out what factors effect ground reaction forces the most, and how to decrease the risk of injury due to this increase. Velocity, body mass, type of shoe and type of runner are all factors that have been shown to affect ground reaction forces and were all analyzed.
My hamstrings don’t tighten up as quickly now when engaging in activities that required the extension of them. With increased muscular strength, regarding to the core for example, I have obtained better posture, something that will benefit me years to come. Pilates has helped with my level of physical activity which has in return increased the circulation of blood flow throughout my body. This allows for better oxygen flow and simultaneously better functioning of the brain, a key element in Pilates (mental strength). Pilates calls for an increased heart rate; therefore, the amount of calories burns increases, helping me to lose weight.
Therefore, the purpose of the large surface area the alveoli have is to increase the rate at which oxygen is diffused. The large surface area is also used for energy storage, faster removal of toxins from the blood as well as to store oxygen for future use. http://www.ask.com/question/why-do-alveoli-have-a-large-surface-area There are millions of alveoli within each lung therefore providing a larger surface area for gas exchange to occur. With having this large surface area, diffusion increases. One of the 4 main features alveoli have for it to adapt to gas exchange is the requirement of obtaining a large surface area.
Aim: To examine how a force that a muscle can exert, is effected by factors which are raised from the molecular structure of skeletal muscle. This was obtained by recording the maximum weight that biceps muscle can hold at varies joint angles, exploring the relationship between force and velocity during multi-joint and multi-muscle activities and finally by measuring the length-tension relationship from active to passive insufficiency. Methods: Pages 5, 12, 13 and 14 of the revised lab manual handout. Results: Experiment 1: The experiment was conducted with subject’s arm in upright and horizontal positions at different angles. Subject was required to hold varies weights without moving from her initial position.
Three principles of training are overload, progression and recovery. It is a fact that a body must be overloaded above its normal level when exercised. This overload helps the body to adapt to the new “most-difficult” conditions. Therefore, the person’s fitness will increase. Let us say that a person can only run for 20 minutes; that person should run for 25 minutes to overload his muscles.
Many different types of cardio exist, and you can mix and match different varieties to get the most benefit from your workout regimen. Cardiovascular exercise is any activity that increases heart rate and respiration while using large muscle groups repetitively and rhythmically. Any type of exercise that involves getting and keeping your heart rate up would be considered cardiovascular exercise, such as running, jogging, walking, jump roping, or aerobic dance. These are known as high-impact activities. Not only does cardio exercise help you build strength and muscle, it also helps you burn calories, which in turn cause you to lose weight.
This is due to a basic theory; an increase in temperature increases the kinetic energy of a molecule, causing increased molecular movement. This principle is embraced in diffusion. Diffusion is the net movement of molecules from a high to low concentration. An increase in temperature will result in an increase in the molecules’ kinetic energy, which allows the molecules to move faster therefore speeding up the rate of diffusion. For example, rate of gas exchange in organism will increase; more oxygen will diffuse into the cells and more carbon dioxide will diffuse back out into blood to be removed.
