Re-Evaluations

by

Yesterday in lab, we did re-evaluations to reflect on how far we’ve come since the first day of lab. When I did the mile run the first time around, I felt like death afterwards. For days, my legs were sore and my abs hurt every time I laughed. This time, I completed the mile much […]

Sport Nutrition

by

Today in lab we talked about Sports Nutrition and the differences in the fuel amounts the body needs when it comes to engaging in sports or just being a healthy individual. We learned that unsaturated fats are the healthy fats like oils. Saturated fats are the bad fats that increase LDL, the bad cholesterol, and decrease […]

Nutrition

by

Today in class, we talked about nutrition and how much saturated fat and sodium and sugar was in our food, and how we don’t really think about it. Nutrition is always the forgotten part of being healthy. Eating healthily can improve the way your body functions, providing it more sufficiently energy. In class, I learned […]

Flexibility

by

Today in class we learned about flexibility. People always forget that flexibility is a big part of physical fitness and often neglect to work on it. People don’t realize that being flexible now will help you in the long run when you’re older with your range of motion and back pain. I try to stretch […]

Fitness Outreach Campaign

by

Today in class, we planned our fitness outreach campaign. I like this project because it’ll be pretty cool to try to influence other people outside of the Kinesiology department. My group came to a decision on what we are going to do and I think it’s a pretty good idea. I’m looking forward to getting […]

Guest Trainer

by

So today in class, we had Tiffany Artis as a guest trainer. I was initially a little worried because Professor Salom said she always kicked her butt. I know I am no where near as trained as Professor Salom so I was worried. But Tiffany was very nice and cool and I stayed in the […]

Lower Body Strength

by

My lower body strength is definitely better than my upper body strength, but it’s still something I have to work on. We did squats, dead lift, and calf raises to test our lower body strength in lab. It was initially tougher than I thought because I do squats occasionally, and run when I can, but […]

Upper Body Strength

by

So I knew from way before this class that my upper body strength is not good. My arms are thin and noodle-y and I can barely get the lids off some jars and sometimes have trouble opening juice containers. I found those exercises really difficult to do, except for the plank because I do that semi-regularly. […]

Cardiorespiratory Fitness- ZUMBA

by

Yesterday, in class we participated in cardiorespiratory fitness by dancing along to a Zumba video. Firstly, I want to say that this is such a good way to work out if you don’t necessary like to work out traditionally. Tradition exercise can get repetitive and boring, and you might want to stop working out. But […]

Cardiorespiratory Fitness

by

Everyone knows that doing cardio is important for your health. We learned in class that the muscles of your heart actually become stronger with cardio and become able to pump blood more efficiently, and that it can lower your risk of CVD (cardiovascular disease), high blood pressure, stroke, etc. I recently read an article related to […]
