Getting in (Better) Shape

Dept of Geology & Geophysics Program for Field Camp 2005

Looks whose participating: The 2004 group in action!

This program is designed to help increase your endurance and aerobic activity, from mid-March until mid-May, and have fun doing it! Working out with a partner, or group, adds the social aspect to overcome (perceived) boredom or drudgery of training.


General Comments:

Two aspects of fitness need improving

  1.  endurance  - getting the body used to exercise for longer  times   (initial focus) 
  2.  muscle strength - building muscle strength to help carry you, strength training.
Also affected by:
  1. weight - remember calories in = calories burned = 0;  physics diet
By joining us, each person accepts full responsibility for their exercise.
