Transcript of Exercise:

#Fitting it in!

Relevance To

“Of the 65% of Americans that are overweight, the greatest increases in weight gain occur in persons between the ages of 18-29 years. Adam and Cloner (2008) analyzed data from 40,209 college students that completed the American Health Association-College Assessment. They found relationships between physical activity, perceived health, sleep, self-care behaviors, and grades and the intake of high fruit and vegetable intake for men and women. In other words, your health is tied in with your college success in many ways” (University of Texas at Arlington, 2010, p 126).

Healthy People 2020 Objectives
“PA-2.1 Increase the proportion of adults who engage in aerobic physical activity of at least moderate intensity for at least 150 minutes/week, or 75 minutes/week of vigorous intensity, or an equivalent combination.

PA-2.3 Increase the proportion of adults who perform muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days of the week” (Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2014).

Complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire!

These questionnaires help individuals of all ages determine if they should consult a physician prior to engaging in increased physical activity and is easily accessible on the internet (Kravitz, 2011).

Objective 2 :
To encourage college students to perform at least 2 days a week of strength training exercises. With 8-12 repetitions of each exercise and 1 or more sets should be performed on all major muscle groups to the point of fatigue (Fahey, Insel, & Roth, 2014).

Regular or cardio- endurance physical activity can improve health and quality of life (Physical Activity, 2015).

Physical and Psychological
Impacts of Exercise
Boosts Brainpower:
Exercise increases energy levels and increases serotonin in the brain, which leads to improved mental clarity (Physical Activity, 2015).

Helps manage stress: Exercise produces a relaxation response that serves as a positive distraction (Physical Activity, 2015).

Exercise releases energy:
When endorphins are released into your bloodstream during exercise you feel more energized for the rest of the day (Physical Activity, 2015).

Boost the Immune System:
Research has shown that exercise can decrease or prevent heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type II diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and loss of muscle mass (Physical Activity, 2015).

Stronger Heart:
Heart and Cardiovascular systems will function more effectively with exercise. The heart will build up less plaque and pump more efficiently (Physical Activity, 2015).

Exercise Elevates Performance: Exercise strengthens your muscles, elevates your flexibility and reaction time, and improves endurance and balance (Physical Activity, 2015).
Physical Issues:

Increased risk for obesity

• Decreased movement of joints and muscles

• Decreased strength and endurance

• Decreased flexibility and increased risk of osteoporosis and fractures
(Edelman, Kudzma, & Mandle, 2014).
Medical Complications:

Increased risk for stroke
Decreased bone density
Increased risk for diabetes
Reduced metabolic processes
Reduced efficiency of the heart
(Edelman, Kudzma, & Mandle, 2014).
Students who fail to implement physical activity into their life are at risk for developing hypertension and other medical ailments (Edelman, Kudzma, & Mandle, 2014).

Resistance training is a beneficial exercise that will aid in the prevention and treatment of hypertension (Edelman, Kudzma, & Mandle, 2014).

Emotional/Mental Concern:

Increased risk of depression and dementia (Edelman, Kudzma, & Mandle, 2014).
