What are some things that affect your performance during physical activity?
Asked in Video Games
What resources does your body require during extreme levels of physical performance?
Asked in Muscular System
What happens to your muscle cells during intense physical activity?
Asked in Genetics
What happens to a muscle cell during intense physical activity?
Asked in Exercise
Why does muscle temperature increase during exercise?
A rise in muscle temperature due to exercise is part of your body's normal response to physical activity. Temperature increases inside your muscles to accommodate the rising demands of physical activity. Elevated muscle temperature might positively affect your performance during exercise. However, muscles that stay too hot for too long may cause insufficient recovery in addition to other serious health problems.
Asked in Male Puberty, Female Puberty
What physical changes occur during puberty and adolescence that affect physical performance in boys and girls?
Asked in Body Temperature
What causes increased body temperature during physical activity?
What activity increases the ability of the body to supply fuel and oxygen during sustained physical activity?
Asked in Arteries
Coronary artery perfusion occurs predominantly during when?
Asked in Health
The ability of the body to supply fuel and oxygen during sustained physical activity?
Asked in Blood Pressure
How do diurnal variations affect the blood pressure?
Is oxygen debt a legitimate medical condition?
Oxygen debt is not a condition but rather a medical term that refers to the amount of oxygen that is lost during intense physical activity and needs to be replenished. This loss or debt of oxygen is replenished by heavy breathing that occurs during intense physical activity or when the physical activity ceases.

What is the role of creatine phosphate during physical performance?
What is performance to the Human Resource Manager?
Asked in Physical Education
How can physical activity affects academic performance?
describe physical activity as "an action that requires muscle contraction in your body…this includes walking, chores, playing Wii sports, and in some cases even sitting" (p. 94). Physical fitness is described as a set of attributes either health-related (cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and body composition) or skill-related (balance, agility, power, reaction time, speed, and coordination) and these attributes are usually measured with a specific set of tests completed during physical education class (Caspersen et al., 1985). Exercise, is a type of physical activity, "a dedicated time for repetitive actions with the purpose of increasing performance or physical capacity" (Evans & Burghardt, 2008, p. 94), such as conditioning for many athletic activities, in an effort to improve or maintain physical fitness. It is important to note "although all exercise is physical activity, not all physical activity is exercise" (USDHHS, 2008, Chapter 2, p. 7).
