week 3

Question Answer
What are Sheldon's Somatotypes? Endomorphy – refers to the relative predominance of soft roundness throughout the body. (2) Mesomorphy – refers to relative predominance of muscle, bone, and connective tissue. (3) Ectomorphy – refers to the relative predominance of linearity and fragility. Each rating is done on a 7–point scale. (Endo–meso–ecto)
What are some of the differences noted in somatotypes?Ethnicity, gender, genetics. Females are more endomorphic and less mesomorphic than males. Both genes and environment are important in determining differences in somatotype components. The heritability’s for mesomorphy (85%) and ectomorphy (65%) are higher than for endomorphy (28%)
Heath–Carter method for somatotypesIt is on a 12–point scale instead of 7.
What is the criticism with somatotypes? The somatotype doesn’t tell you anything about a person’s height, or about body proportionality – trunk length vs. leg length, etc.
What is Anthropometry?Quantitative measures of a selected humans landmarks.
What is the 2 component and 4 component model for body composition?2 component: amount of fat and fat free mass there is in the body. 4 component: measures fat, protein, mineral and water. It breaks the non–fat stuff into more detail.
Why assess body composition?Suitable body composition is important for health.\n–Establish reasonable fatness ranges for athletes in various sports\n–Accurate measures of body composition are needed to develop sound weight reduction programs\n–Knowledge of bone mineral content in women and children is important.\n–Monitor changes in body composition associated with disease.
Essential fat vs. Storage fatEssential: Fat that is required for normal physiological functioning. (Cell membrane, transport of fat soluble vitamins, fat in general). Storage: Fat that is stored in adipose tissue for energy supply purposes.
fat distribution Males Vs. Females.Men - Apple shape associated with higher health risks.\n\nFemale - Pear shape. After menopause it switches to apple shape.\nWomen have 9% more Essential fat due to child bearing.
Adipose TissueIt is an endocrine organ that secretes dozens of peptide and non peptide compounds that trigger change throughout the body. e.g. leptin, adiponectin, inflammatory proteins, grehlin
What are the causes of Obesity Epidemic?1. Too much energy intake exceeds energy expenditure.\n2. decreased physical activity\n3. increased consumption of calories.\n4. Social Environment.\n5. Biology\n6. Viruses?

How do you measure body volume?Underwater weighing \nvolumetry\nair–displacement plethysmography.
Body Mass Index (BMI)Used as an indicator for obesity. weight (kg)/height (m) ^2 Criticism: BMI does not take body composition into account.
Hip to Waist Ratioconsidered to be a better predictor of health related risks than BMI
What are the two types of body composition prediction equations?1) population specific equations: developed from relatively small, homogenous samples. eg. Sloan and Yuhasz 2) Generalized equations: developed from large heterogenous samples. Should be used in caution with special populations.\neg. Jackson and Pollack, Durnin & Womersley, Peterson, Wang
What is the error approximate of skinfold measurments?approx. 3–4%
What are the three fatness indicators used by the Canadian Physical Activity, Fitness and Lifestyle Appraisal?1) BMI: is subject overweight? 2) Sum of 5 skinfolds: triceps, biceps, subscapular, iliac crest, and medial calf 3) Waist Girth: high visceral adiposity?
What is the O–scale system?Adiposity rating (A–rating) –proportional weight rating (W–rating) –stanine scale
What is Bioelectrical Impedance AnalysisUsed to measure the electrical resistance in the body. Impedance is greater in adipose tissue than bone and muscle. Error= approx 3–5%
Near–Infrared Interactance (NIR)The degree of infrared light absorbed and reflected is related to the composition of tissues. Optical densities are linearly related to subcutaneous and total fat.\n* Biceps are the best site to estimate fat with this method
Other procedures used to estimate body composition1) dual energy X–ray absorptiometry 2) Total body water: hydrometry 3) ultrasound 4) Magnetic resonance imaging 5) computerized tomography 6) total body potassium
