    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…

    variety of ways. There are many laboratory and/or field tests that could be completed by subjects to determine their VO2 max. According to McArdle (2015) “..usual activity modes include treadmill running or walking, bench stepping, and stationary cycling. In accord with exercise test and training specificity, other forms of testing employ free tethered, and flume swimming, swim-bench ergometry, in-line skating, roller skiing, simulated arm-leg climbing, rowing, ice-skating and arm-crank and…

    What was the subject’s measured VO2 max? What specific criteria from the demonstrated test were achieved to indicate that true exhaustion had been reached? The subject 's measured VO2max was 52.9 ml/kg/min. Specific criteria indicating that true exhaustion has been reach include: a plateau in VO2, a RER>1.0, an RPE>17, and a heart rate within 10 bpm of the calculated maximum heart rate. 3. Describe the association between cardiac output and VO2max. What limits VO2max? Cardiac output is…

    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…

    3. All three subjects attained their oxygen consumption (VO2) max. Each subject was able to pass 3 criteria to attain a VO2 max. To begin with subject 1 attained their VO2 max because the individual respiratory exchange ratio (RER) was greater than 1.15. As shown in table 1, the subject’s max RER is 1.2, which is greater than 1.15. Also, the rating of perceived exertion (RPE) was greater 17, as shown in table 1 the subject’s RPE is 20. Finally, the post VO2 max blood lactate level was 15.2, the…

    the sound foundation for “The fine art of sighing”. By definition according to Merriam Webster Dictionary, sighing is “to take a deep audible breath (as in weariness or relief)” however through the depth of Cooper 's writing we find that sighing is a passage to many other emotions and avenues(“sigh”). Although not clearly evident at the surface of his piece, the writing style of “the fine art of sighing” suggest Bernard Cooper himself finds sighing to be a blockade in relationships and trivial…
