Part Description

LP173547-3   Exercise intensity
Exercise intensity levels can be categorized as light, moderate or vigorous. Intensity can be further defined in absolute or relative terms. Absolute exercise intensity is independent of an individual's level of fitness and defined in terms of metabolic equivalents, or METs, which is a unit useful for describing the energy expenditure of a specific activity. Light intensity exercise is defined at 1.1-2.9 METs, moderate is 3.0 to 5.9 METs and vigorous is 6.0 METs or more, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee (2008). The Advisory Committee indicated that 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity activity per week could be regarded as (roughly) equivalent to 500 MET-minutes per week. Relative intensity takes an individual's level of fitness and can be defined in terms of a percent of a person's (1) maximal heart rate, (2) heart rate reserve, or (3) aerobic capacity reserve. Relative moderate intensity is defined as 40 to 59 percent of aerobic capacity reserve (where 0 percent of reserve is resting and 100 percent of reserve is maximal effort). Relatively vigorous-intensity activity is defined as 60 to 84 percent of reserve. Source: Regenstrief LOINC, Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans: Appendix 1
