Measuring your fitness level | Business & Finance homework help

As we learned about in our lecture, there are three types of exercise:

  1. Aerobic exercises, e.g. running, cycling, walking, and skiing, are performed for longer intervals and require oxygen. Aerobic exercise primarily uses slow-twitch, or Type II, muscle fibers, which are more likely to contain myoglobin and higher levels of mitochondria. Performing aerobic exercise builds endurance and cardiovascular capacity.
  2. Anaerobic exercises, e.g. lifting weights, sit-ups, push-ups, lunges, sprints, are performed for short, high-intensity spurts (5 seconds to 2 minutes). Anaerobic exercise primarily uses fast-glycolytic, or Type I muscle fibers. Performing anaerobic exercises will increase strength and power.
  3. Stretching exercises, such as stretching and yoga, are important for increasing flexibility and range of motion and for decreasing the likelihood of injuries.

For this week’s assignment, you will be performing various exercises, recording your results in the Measuring Your Fitness Manual (attached)Preview the document, and responding to the questions below.

*Important Note: Before you get started, if you are physically unable to perform these activities, you can have someone else do the exercises for you, but you must answer the questions. It is also highly recommended that you seek guidance from your doctor before you begin any activity, especially if you are over 40 and have been sedentary, or if you have significant health concerns. Please email the instructor if you have concerns.
