9 illustrates additional complexities in these relationships. This model shows that habitual physical activity can influence fitness, which in turn may modify the level of habitual physical activity. It not only shows that people tend to become more active with increasing fitness and that the fittest individuals tend to be the most active; it also specifies that fitness is related to health in a reciprocal manner. That is, fitness influences health, and health status also influences both habitual physical activity level and fitness level.
Lower end of which decreased from 60% V O max 2 . to 40% V O2max. The earlier editions of this influential book indicated that rather vigorous exercise was needed to provide benefits, and this concept was widely communicated to the public during the 1970s and 1980s. Recognition of the importance of moderate-intensity physical activity, as reflected by the changing exercise prescription guidelines of ACSM, evolved gradually during the 1980s and early 1990s as the result of a growing and changing body of research evidence.
Importance of Moderate-Intensity Physical Activity ACSM’s Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription has undergone revision approximately every 5 years since its initial publication in 1975 (ACSM 1975).
