UNIT 2
As soon as you begin to exercise changes begin to happen within your body. Body systems work together, to make sure that you have enough energy to perform. Body systems respond both in the Short and Long-term in response to exercise. It is important to understand the changes that happen to the body as a result of physical activity. You will understand the: Muscoskeletal, Cardiovascular and Respiratory responses to exercise through this unit As soon as you begin to exercise changes begin to happen within your body.

CONTEXT

SCENARIO
You have been appointed as a Trainee Sports Therapist working with the Sixth Form Sports Teams. As part of your role you need to work with players from the teams to look at the effects that exercise has on the body. You will need to look at the effects of exercise in both the short and long term and conduct some investigations to show the players the effects that exercise has on their bodies.

ASSESSMENT TASK 1(P1/P2/M1)
The body’s acute response to exercise

SCENARIO
As a trainee Sports Therapist you have been asked to conduct some research into the short term effects of exercise on the following body systems (Muscoskeletal, Energy, Cardiovascular and Respiratory System). You need to feedback to the Senior Sports Therapist with your findings. * DESCRIBE the MUSCOSKELETAL and ENERGY systems response to acute exercise (P1)

* DESCRIBE the CARDIOVASCULAR and RESPIRATORY systems responses to acute exercise(P2)

* EXPLAIN the response of the MUSCOSKELTAL, CARDIOVASCULAR and RESPIRATORY Systems to acute exercise ( M1 )

ASSESSMENT TASK 1 (P1/P2/M1). HELPSHEET
GRADING CRITERIA
PASS| PASS| MERIT|
P1: DESCRIBE the MUSCOSKELETAL and ENERGY systems response to acute exercise| P2: DESCRIBE the CARDIOVASCULAR and RESPIRATORY systems responses to acute exercise| M1: EXPLAIN the response of the MUSCOSKELTAL, CARDIOVASCULAR and RESPIRATORY Systems to acute exercise|

USE OF KEY VERBS
VERB| PLAIN ENGLISH|
Describe| Try to “Paint a picture” in words. Assume that the person that you are Describing to does not know anything about the subject that you are describing. Tell them what you have learned.| Explain| Once you have described the subject, often you will need to give further details and reasons why. (e.g.) Once you have described England’s poor performance in the World Cup, you may also give some reasons why the players did not perform as well as they could.|

NO.| Learner Checklist(Steps to Success)| TICK WHEN COMPLETE| | | Learner| Assessor|
1| TITLE : The Body’s acute response to exercise| | | 2| Paint a picture of the effects that exercise has on the MUSCOSKELETAL system. Include the following: Increased Blood Supply, Increase in Muscle Pliability, Increased range of movement and Muscle Fibre Micro-Tears (e.g.) Blood Supply increases to the muscles during exercise , this allows more oxygen to be delivered through the blood capillaries to fuel the muscles.Give further details and reasons why (where appropriate) for the effects on the MUSCOSKELTAL system.(e.g.)Dilation of the blood capillaries occurs this allows more blood to flow through the capillaries. This means that an increased amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide can be exchanged between the capillaries and skeletal muscle allowing energy production to increase and also to increase the speed at which waste is removed| | | 3| Paint a...
