exercise | Definition, Types, Principles, & Health Effects

Physical fitness is a general concept and is defined in many ways by different scientists. Physical fitness is discussed here in two major categories: health-related physical fitness and motor-performance physical fitness. Despite some overlap between these classifications, there are major differences, as described below.

Health-related physical fitness

Health-related physical fitness is defined as fitness related to some aspect of health. This type of physical fitness is primarily influenced by an individual’s exercise habits; thus, it is a dynamic state and may change. Physical characteristics that constitute health-related physical fitness include strength and endurance of skeletal muscles, joint flexibility, body composition, and cardiorespiratory endurance. All these attributes change in response to appropriate physical conditioning programs, and all are related to health.

Strength and endurance of skeletal muscles of the trunk help maintain correct posture and prevent such problems as low back pain. Minimal levels of muscular strength and endurance are needed

Duron Harmon Learned He Was Traded To Lions While In Dentist Chair | New England Patriots

Surprised by the New England Patriots’ decision to trade Duron Harmon to the Detroit Lions? So was Harmon.

During an interview Friday with Lions team reporter Tori Petry, the now-former Patriots safety explained how he learned about the trade. It all went down during one extremely eventful dentist appointment.

“This is going to be a funny story,” Harmon said. “So on Wednesday morning, I had to go to the dentist. I had to get a small procedure done, and while I’m there, the dentist was like, ‘You know what, your wisdom tooth up to the top has a little crack in it. We might as well just take it out while we’re doing the procedure on here.’ He was like, ‘It won’t be that bad, I promise you. You’ll have a couple days of pain and you’ll be all right.’

“So he starts wiggling the tooth, and my phone is

How to Prepare Children for their First Pediatric Dentist Appointment

The Canadian Dental Association recommends that children see a pediatric dentist within 6 months of their first tooth eruption or by their first birthday. This ensures they get their teeth checked before any problems can arise.  In most cases, a dentist visit every 6 months is recommended for preventative measures.

There are numerous reasons for taking your child to the dentist while they are young.  Dentists are able to advise on how to clean teeth at home and identify any problems and fix them right away. This also teaches your child that going to the dentist is a part of self-care and that dentists can help prevent problems that stem from the mouth.

Pediatric dentists often take X-rays during early visits to show any decay between the teeth and to determine whether the teeth are growing in properly as they should. Dentists are able to see if teeth are coming
