  • Page 6: Training Guidelines

    TRAINING GUIDELINES Exercise is one of the most important factors in the overall health of an individual. Listed among its benefits are: • Increased capacity for physical work (strength endurance) • Increased cardiovascular (heart and arteries/veins) and respiratory efficiency • Decreased risk of coronary heart disease • Changes in body metabolism, e.g. losing weight • Delaying the physiological effects of age • Reduction in stress, increase in self-confidence, etc. There are several components of physical fitness and each is defined below. STRENGTH The capacity of a muscle to exert a force against resistance.
  • Page 7 OXYGEN UPTAKE The effort that you can exert over a prolonged period of time is limited by your ability to deliver oxygen to the working muscles. Regular vigorous exercise produces a training effect that can increase your aerobic capacity by as much as 20 to 30%. An increased VO2 Max indicates an increased ability of the heart to pump blood, of the lungs to ventilate oxygen, and of the muscles to take up oxygen.
  • Page 8 HEART RATE As you exercise, your heart beat increases. This is often used as a measure of the required intensity of an exercise. You need to exercise hard enough to condition your circulatory system, and increase your pulse rate, but not enough to strain your heart. Your initial level of fitness is important when developing an exercise program for you.
  • Page 9 MUSCLE SORENESS For the first week or so, muscle soreness may be the only indication you have that you are on an exercise program. This, of course, does depend on your overall fitness level. A confirmation that you are on the correct program is a very slight soreness in most major muscle groups. This is quite normal and will disappear in a matter of days.
