Body Systems in Hockey
Transcript of Body Systems in Hockey
Playing hockey burns calories and fat. Each player burns about 509 calories per 45 minutes on the ice. Credits http://www.livestrong.com/article/546213-what-are-the-health-benefits-of-playing-hockey/ Responses and Reactions
Playing hockey improves the responses and reactions of the players during the game. You need lots of hand-eye coordination to deflect a shot that could be traveling at 95 miles per hour or more and shoot it towards the corner of the net. Muscular System The muscular system is used in hockey in lots of ways. Your calf muscles, hamstrings, glutes and core muscles get an excellent workout through the skating process. Skeletal System The skeletal system is used in hockey because you need your bones to move and skate around the ice. Nervous System The Nervous System is important in hockey because you need to have a quick reaction to a player coming at you to check you, or a puck flying at you really fast. More health benefits. The requirement of energy and muscular strength helps the development of the body's cardiovascular system. Your heart rate stays high throughout the game and for at least 30 minutes afterwards. The energy used to play pushes your heart to its target rate and that helps develop heart and lung health. GOODBYE
