  • 6-Week Health Program: A Case Study

    improving her cardiorespiratory endurance. As Ashlee prefers starting off by training indoors, a treadmill-based program has been tailored for her, followed by few sessions of outdoor training in the later weeks. A Cooper Test was conducted to obtain her baseline measurements. This test was chosen because it showed a greater criterion-validity for predicting cardiorespiratory fitness (Mayorga-Vega, Bocanegra-Parrilla, Ornelas, & Viciana, 2016). This test will be repeated after 6 weeks to note the differences. Longer distances covered with an increase in maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) would indicate a success in increasing her endurance. A treadmill was used for this test with the inclination set at 1%. She adjusted her running and walking speeds to her usual values. Before the test, a PAR-Q screening form was completed to check for risk factors (Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, 2002). Her resting heart rate was measured and a value of 59bpm was obtained. She warmed up for 5 minutes by cycling on an upright bike and proceeded with the run for twelve minutes. After the test, she cooled down by walking on the treadmill for 3 minutes and did some stretching. From the test results, Ashlee’s distances covered was 2.06km in twelve minutes. During the test, the speed was altered whenever she felt tired. She also walked for a total of ninety seconds and ran the rest. The treadmill reading showed that her average speed was 9.25kph. The modified Borg Rating of Perceived…

  • Aerobic Capacity

    This particular type of training can induce possible muscle damage, so should only be down with a professional trainer and skilled athletes. Due to different types of training HRR may have a different impact on training status. Aubry et al. found HRR to actually be negatively associated with this type of training as it pertains to changes in performance, but should still be assessed depending on the phase of training and response to performance. However, Borreson & Lambert (2007) conducted a…
