Define cardiovascular and list the purpose of benefits.
Being able to exercise for long periods of time and measures length of time that heart and lungs can efficiently provide oxygen to muscles.
Define strength and list the purpose and benefits.
Ability of muscle (or muscle groups) to exert a maximal force against resistance one time through a full range of motion.
Define muscular endurance and list the purpose and benefits.
Ability of muscles to exert submaximal forces repeatedly in a period of time. Allows muscles to perform well for a longer period of time.
