The Physiology of Exercise and the Process of Aging.
A physical fitness plan is considered desirable for young people, young adults, and especially older adults. This program for secondary level students focuses on the physiology of exercise and the process of aging, and stresses the need for physical fitness. Specific objectives include the following: (1) to let students become evaluators of their own exercise program in and out of school; (2) to introduce students at the secondary level to the study of adulthood and gerontology, and to the lifelong values of physical exercise; (3) to introduce the contradictions of the meaning and importance of lifelong exercies; (4) to develop a knowledge of the physiological benefits of a lifelong program; (5) to distinguish the contradictions of the past male/female roles related to a lifelong program; and (6) to introduce an account of the physiological process through the ages and the relationship of sedentary and active exercises to this program. Procedures for achieving these objectives are outlined. (KA)
