Sport

Unit 5: The Sports Performer in Action

Learning aim A: Know about the short-term responses and long-term adaptations of the body systems to exercise 

Topic A.1 Short-term effects of exercise on the musculoskeletal system:

  • increased production of synovial fluid for joint lubrication and nourishment
  • increased joint range of movement due to increase in blood flow and increased muscle temperature
  • micro tears in muscle fibres, causing the muscle to rebuild itself and become slightly bigger and stronger
  • exercise (high-impact activity) encourages new bone formation
  • increased metabolic activity.

Topic A.2 Short-term effects of exercise on the cardiorespiratory system:

  • increased heart rate due to the heart having to work harder to pump oxygenated blood around the body
  • increased breathing rate, in order to supply more oxygen to working muscles and remove carbon dioxide
  • increased blood flow
  • sweat production and skin reddening
  • re-distribution of blood flow via the vasoconstriction (narrowing) of arterioles supplying inactive parts of the body and vasodilation (opening) of arterioles supplying skeletal muscles with more blood and nutrients
  • increased build-up of lactic acid in the blood
  • increased cardiac output to get oxygenated blood to working muscles (due to increased heart rate and stroke volume)
  • increased blood pressure – as the cardiovascular system works to deliver more oxygen and glucose to the muscles (systolic pressure rises and diastolic pressure remains unchanged) 
  • as muscular activity increases, the production of carbon dioxide increases resulting in an increase in Tidal Volume (TV) (TV is the amount of air inhaled and exhaled with each breath).
