High intensity exercises reduce CVD risk factors better than aerobic activities in adolescent youth (study)

Some questions for you:
  • Do you provide activities that are of high intensity or do we primarily focus on moderate levels of activity?
  • How might you take advantage of this new study and create more high intensity activities?
  • How will you deal with the fact that children do not have high cardiovascular fitness levels and then you're asking them to work extra hard? 
  • Do you know how the body (especially youth) responds to movement and the bioenergetics involved in exercise?  
  • Have you taken EXS 387, EXS 397 prior to student teaching?  
  • Do you think it's important to have this knowledge and skill set in human movement to be a great and transformative educator?
This article examines the effects of brief, intense exercise in comparison with traditional endurance exercise on both novel and traditional markers of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in youth.
