Transcript of Exercise Physiology for Educators

Types of Training This type of training involves intensities of around 40 to 60% of Maximum Heart Rate It is basically something slow, easy, continuous and long (over 40 minutes). This can be walking, cycling, jogging, etc. This type of training is good for people just getting started with cardio work It is reasonably good for fat loss, especially in very obese people. It is also the least demanding form of aerobic training. Medium Intensity, Medium Duration Low Intensity, Long Duration This involves aerobic work done at around 70% of max HR It is harder, therefore it cannot be done for as long, usually between 20 to 40 minutes This is the next step up from the low intensity work This type of training can be used for fat loss and for increasing aerobic capacity It is characterized by the beginning of heavy breathing but not so much that you are soon out of breath and must stop. High Intensity, Short Duration
This version of aerobic work is done at around 80 to 85% of HR max. That point, at 85% of your HR max, is generally considered to be the Anaerobic Threshold, though this can vary depending on genetics and fitness level This is a very demanding form of training. It is done for between 5 to 20 minutes generally, depending on fitness level and intensity. Aerobic Interval Training The first way of doing aerobic interval training involves doing a period of moderate to high intensity aerobic work, alternating with a period of rest of low intensity work, e.g. 3 minutes of fast running then 1 minute of slow walking, repeated 4 times. You can vary the intervals and intensities to your liking, e.g. 10 minutes of moderate work, 2 minutes easy, 1 minute hard, or perhaps 5 minutes hard, 5 minutes easy. The key is variation during the work while not working so hard that you must stop completely Anaerobic Interval Training This type of training involves going hard for short periods of time then resting for equal or longer periods of time. It is done at intensities of 85 to 100% of your HR max. Here is an example of how it works: sprint as hard as you can for 30 seconds, walk for 30 seconds, sprint 30 seconds, walk 30 seconds, etc. Repeat 3 to 6 times depending on fitness level. Fartlek Training Translated from Swedish, this means speed play Basically, you mix up all of the above types of training together into one session. You might run for 10 minutes, sprint for 30 seconds, walk for 2 minutes, run fast for 2 minutes, jog slowly for 5 minutes then sprint again. It is a good way to work through the entire intensity spectrum as well as to prevent boredom Circuit Training Circuit training involves the combination of a series of activities Activities are set into stations and you spend an equal amount of time at each station before moving to the next It is a reasonably good way to do aerobic work and weight training work at the same time. It also has the advantage of working the entire body instead of just the legs as most forms of aerobic training do.
