Cardiovascular: Project and Workout Log
Workout Log
As you learned in the Getting Started lessons, each topic in the HOPE course includes a workout log. As you work through the Cardiovascular lessons and activities, you will need to conduct and document six hours (or 360 minutes) of physical activity on your Cardiovascular Workout Log. A variety of physical activity can be defined as a minimum of three different activities. You will submit your completed workout log when you reach the final lesson of this topic. You will also reflect on your workout with your instructor when you complete the Cardiovascular Discussion-Based Assessment.
Project Introduction
How much do you think the general population knows about the cardiovascular system? Do you think they know which activities benefit the cardiovascular system and how many minutes of activity are needed for cardiovascular activity? Do you think they know the importance of the target heart rate zone and regular cardiovascular activity? What do you think the public needs to know about this important topic?
You have been selected as a health news correspondent for a famous news network. Every good news correspondent needs to have an understanding of the topic they are going to cover and the best way to deliver the information to the public. The lessons in this topic will provide you with the background information you will need to create your news report.
Collaboration Component
Your HOPE course requires that you complete one collaboration component for each segment of the course, but you may choose to take advantage of more than one collaboration opportunity. You may complete your collaboration component during this topic or during the other segment one topics. Please see the collaboration component instructions to fulfill your assignment.
