Personal cardiorespiratory assessment

Personal cardiorespiratory assessment

A warm-up is not Cardiorespiratory Training. It is a warm-up, movement that has a sole purpose to improve blood flow to the entire body and prepare the supporting systems for exercise.  Therefore Cardiorespiratory training is a necessary independent component of fitness that must be addressed with the same vigor and assessment precision as a resistance training program. Cardiorespiratory fitness can be improved via a variety of exercise components and modalities, but the similar factor within that exercise is the consistent elevation of heart rate, for an extended period of time, which meets the ACSM’s recommendations for improvement of cardiorespiratory fitness.  The elevated heart rate must be a direct result of repeated large muscle contractions, causing the coordination of heart and lungs to produce energy and movement. For this assignment you will measure your personal level of cardiorespiratory fitness. Using the NASM protocols for cardiorespiratory assessment and the attached Labs 3.1-1 through 3.2-3, as criteria for assessment.

Assignment #4 WK6

Describe and list the results of your personal cardio respiratory assessment. Your results should include: all elements listed on the document titled “CPT7_cardio_assessment_template” including your fitness ratings.   In your description of your results explain why you think you displayed these fitness rating results. Does your lifestyle contribute to your rating? Why? Why not?

Based on your results and fitness rating, develop a Cardiorespiratory exercise program.

Use the attached Assignment 4 WK6 Template to assist you with layout.  Within your assignment use a combination of narrative & any templates charts/graphs that you think are appropriate (see assignment attachments noted within the instructions). 



The narrative of your paper should be a minimum of 3 written pages (not including title page and reference page); charts or tables will enhance your project but will not count toward your total page count. Please support the rationale for your thoughts and opinions.  Cite the sources of any definitions or ideas that are not your own using appropriate academic sources (minimum of 2 References – required readings as sources are allowed and encouraged).



The writing component must meet all rules of APA formatting (7th edition)

  • title page
  • headings: See outline above for heading title ideas
  • page numbers
  • in-text citations
  • reference page

Including the title and reference pages, your entire submission will be no shorter than 5 pages.

**Also, please refer to our APUS Library for help with APA formatting. And the Perdue Owl:

Please use your NASM text readings (both in class and via, the NASM forms (attached), and any other peer-reviewed/scientific resources you may find as reference material for this assignment.  Our APUS Library Search Engines are a good place to begin.

Please refer to the attached rubric for additional details and guidance.

There are several ways to incorporate a Template/Table into your WORD document; a few hints:

If you are unsure of how to do this -the easiest way is to complete your template on one document, then take a screenshot (I use a Mac & the command for screenshot is command+shift+4, which then gets saved as a pic.  On a PC, there is often a “print screen” button which actually saves the screenshot to your desktop OR to a clipboard for you to paste in a word doc), open and copy the picture, then paste it into the document in the appropriate spot.

Please refer to the attached rubric for additional details and guidance.
