Terms and nomenclature to describe exercise

Edward Winter ©2013
You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

This webinar addressed correct and incorrect use of terms and nomenclature to describe exercise. Correct use of terms should conform to classical (Newtonian) mechanics, the Système International d’Unités and hence, science. Frequently, such conformity does not occur.

At the end of the webinar, viewers were able to:

  • Describe Swammerdam’s experiment
  • Define exercise/physical activity
  • Describe Newton’s 1687 Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica
  • Recognize misuse of "weight", "velocity", "work", "workload", "work rate", "power" and "efficiency"
  • State reasons for using the term "intensity" to describe performed exercise
  • Describe domains of intensity to categories physiological responses to exercise
  • Identify poor practice
  • Be a better scientist
