Competition Current LectureThe sphere of physical activity experience highlight aspects of our life in which physical activity plays an important part. It shows us that many activities can be applied to more than one piece of the sphere. The sphere provides us with a general framework for thinking about the importance of physical activity. Self-SufficiencyPhysical activity is necessary to care for one’s self and can be used to judge one’s independence.ADL’s, Acts of Daily Living, are personal care behaviors such as bathing, dressing, using the toilet, eating and walking. IADL’s, Instrumental Acts of Daily Living, are more strenuous than ADL’s such as light house work, preparing meals, shopping for groceries or clothes, and using the telephone. Home maintenance requires more activity than ADL’s and IADL’s like repair work or shoveling snow. As humans get older, their ability to perform self-sufficient activities decreases. The challenges for Kinesiologist, through research and practice, are to discover ways to prevent or slow the decline in function due to age. Increasing physical activity is one of the best ways to reverse functional decline related to age; whereas, a decrease in physical activity brings negative results. Self-ExpressionThese notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture. GradeBuddy is best used as a supplement to your own notes, not as a substitute.Gestures are intentional movements that communicate information to others. They can replace the communication of spoken words. Emblems convey information and can be directly translated such as referee symbols. Illustrator’s complement words or what we are saying and can indicate the emotion or tone of verbal messages such as pointing to an object. Regulators guide the flow of conversation such as shaking hands. Dance and rituals are instrumental movements that are required for attaining goals. They express experience truth and/or values. WorkPhysical activity is an integral part of our work. Within the sphere of work, one uses physical activity to produce goods and services. Specialist, such as ergonomists and/or human factors engineers, focus on improves efficiency, greater productivity, and improved safety in the work setting. The challenges to Kinesiologist are that physical activity is essential to work, and there are many risks in the workplace. Some things that can put this at risk is the decrease in physical activity, work related injuries, and stress caused from stress. Professionals contribute by improving the methods one uses to perform their work. This could be something as simple as sitting up straight instead of slouching. EducationPhysical activity is integral to all forms and levels of education such as writing, reading, and using a keyboard or calculator. Physical education is a given in almost all public schools in which most activities are focused on physical fitness, sports, and social responsibilities. The challenges that Kinesiologist has are to prevent the growth of child obesity because physical activity levels of children are decreasing. Not all public schools are offering quality physical education programs and recess has been being cut from curriculum. LeisureLeisure can be defines as the state of being in which humans find deep satisfaction and contentment. Free time is personal time not encumbered with obligations. There are many activities that fall under these definitions, some more active than others. Leisure activities can be applied to many older people to increase their physical activity and a great way to fill their time. The challenges of Kinesiologist is to show people the benefits of leisure time and to teach people to participate in free time physical activity pursuits that lead to the state of leisure.HealthThere is a strong relationship between physical activity and health. Low levels of physical activity spark the topics of high health care cost, disease prevention and treatment. There are physiological and psychological effects of exercises; though, potential detriments of physicalactivities include over exercise and injury. The challenges of Kinesiology is to increase the physical activity in people’s lives.CompetitionCompetition occurs in our daily lives. It is usually associated with sports though it can also exist in exercise. Competition can be positive or negative. Some types of competition are side by side,face-to-face non-contact, face-to-face contact, and impersonal.
