The ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen-rich blood to skeletal muscles during sustained physical activity.
Cardiorespiratory training programs that systematically progress clients through various stages to achieve optimal levels of physiologic, physical and performance adaptations by placing stress on the cardiorespiratory system.
integrated cardiorespiratory training
low-intensity exercise consisting of movements that do not necessarily relate to the more intense exercise that is to follow.
low-intensity exercise consisting of movements that mimic those that will be included in the more intense exercise that is to follow.
The number of training sessions in a given time-frame.
The level of demand that a given activity places on the body.
The highest rate of oxygen transport utilization achieved at maximal physical exertion
maximal oxygen consumption (V02max)
The difference between resting and maximal or peak oxygen consumption.
Oxygen uptake reserve (V02R)
The point during graded exercise in which ventilation increases disproportionately to oxygen uptake, signifying a switch from predominately aerobic energy production to anaerobic energy production.
ventilatory threshold (Tvent)
The length of time an individual is engaged in a given activity.
The type or mode of physical activity that an individual is engaged in.
The amount of pleasure derived from performing a physical activity.
Excessive frequency, volume or intensity of training, resulting in fatigue.
