Sample flash cards in this set:
|Coordination||Relates to the ability to use the senses, such as sight and hearing, together with body parts, in performing motor tasks smoothly and accurately|
|Power||Relates to the rate at which one can perform work|
|Reaction Time||Relates to the time elapsed between a stimulus and the beginning of the reaction to it|
|Speed||Ability to perform movement within a short period of time|
|Aerobic Activity||Exercise that requires oxygen to produce the necessary ATP to carry out the activity|
|Anaerobic Activity||Exercise that requires short bursts at a high rate of intensity. Your body does not use oxygen to complete the task, therefore you can only do the exercise for a short period of time|
|Isokinetic Exercise||The velocity of the motion is controlled mechanically so that the limb rotates at a set velocity|
|Isometric Exercise||Muscle contraction that is static, there is no visible joint movement. Ex: Wall sit, grip strength|
|Warm-Up||Purpose is to slowly elevate the pulse and body temperature to an aerobic level by engaging in 5-10 min of slow aerobic activity|
|Cool-Down||Purpose is to slowly decrease the heart rate and body temperature by engaging in slow aerobic activity for at least 5 min.|
|Frequency||Number of training sessions per week to adequately stimulate the muscle|
|Duration||The time or length of an individual exercise session|
|Intensity||Can be manipulated by varying the weight, number of repetitions, the length of rest interval between exercises|
|Calorie||A unit of energy|
|Locomotor Skills||They are a group of movements in which the feet move the body from one place to another. Ex: Walking, Skipping|
|Non-Locomotor Skills||Any motion of the body that doesn't result in traveling from one place to another. Ex: Clapping, stretching|
|Manipulative Skills||a category of motor skills-those that involve using an object|
