**The first section should address, report, discuss, explain, and summarize questions such as: what is known about the topic (e.g., inactivity, amount of physical activity, chronic diseases, etc.); the positive and/or negative effects of aerobic training, the potential assessments needed; the recommendations for program implementation (e.g., supervised or non-supervised), the potential benefits and outcomes, etc. **
Second Section: Case Study – Exercise Prescription (40% of grade):
Provide a prudent, yet effective and comprehensive exercise prescription (i.e., aerobic, resistance, and flexibility training) for losing weight for middle-age woman (age; 46 years old) whose physician has advised her to shed 20 pounds, of excess weight. You will need to explain in full detail the justification for the implementation of health appraisal and pre-assessments during an aerobic exercise training program. Be sure to address the FITT principle and then explain how you would apply the training principles (i.e., progressive overload, specificity, periodization, etc.) into her training program.
Please be sure to provide the rationale (in other words, you are required to explain in full details each of your statements) for each of your recommendations and suggestions during the early stages of her potential exercise prescription (i.e., risk stratification, pre-assessments, exercise testing, starting point, etc.). In addition, please calculate and classify her BMI accordingly. Height = 5 feet 6 inches (1 foot = 12 inches; 1 inch = 2.54 cm); weight = 169 pounds
Background: Currently she doesn’t have to much free time during the week to engage in regular exercise training; however, she has decided that she needs to start doing something in order to take care of herself. She has been inactive for the past two years; however, she used to do some Pilates and yoga twice a week. Now she realizes that she needs to engage in a more comprehensive and structured exercise program.
