CPTN Certification: class 3

Last nights agenda:
- Muscles and math
- Bio mechanics and principles of movement

Everybody must have been tired last night, as nobody really seemed to want to be shouting out answers (guesses) or really participating all that much. Eventually things picked up and the class got involved. I think the instructor was getting annoyed with the lack of participation after a while.

Essentially we started out the class with bio mechanics and principles of movement, so basically planes of movement and physics.
After the break we got into the math. Max Heart Rate range, Cardiac Output, VO2Max (absolute and relative), MET rating, and Body Fat % calculations. Apparently we need to have these formulas memorized. It's been a while for me for memorizing formulas, but they're not too complicated so I should be OK.
