Health Related Fitness
Physical fitness is measured often to see if enough standard is in place to ensure good health. The concept of Health-related fitness consists of the components.
Cardiorespiratory Endurance: This is the level at which your heart, lungs, and muscles work together when you are exercising. The lungs and heart work together to pump oxygen into your working muscles and tissues. One should improve their cardiorespiratory endurance to enable them to physically last longer during a tiring activity.
Cardiorespiratory endurance is measured by maximum oxygen uptake, and how it is used during intense exercise.
To improve your cardiorespiratory endurance you can do jump in place, jumping jacks, standing side hops, side to side hops, jump squat, and burpees.
Muscular Strength and Endurance: This refers to the amount of force one person can put forth with their muscles. Muscular Strength and endurance are two very important parts of your body’s ability to move, lift, and do day-to-day life activities. Muscular endurance shows how many times you can move that weight without getting tired and exhausted.
There are several ways to improve your muscular strength and endurance such as planks, walking lunges, push-ups, and sit-ups.
Flexibility fitness: It is the ability of joints and muscles to move to an extent of motion. Activities that stretch muscles can help you prevent injuries, back pain, and balance problems.
You can do hamstring stretch, sitting should stretch, and lunge stretching.
Body Composition: It is a method of describing what an individual body is made of. A BMI is more accurate when talking about weight and body composition. Having a value within the normal range means that one person has a lower risk of having cardiovascular diseases.
Sports-Related Physical Fitness: This involves skills that enhance one person’s performance in athletic or sports events. This component includes agility, coordination, balance, speed, power, and reaction time. You can enhance your power by combining resistance and speed with fast-paced strength training moves such as kettlebell swings and clean and jerk lifts.
