Body Fat Calculator & Body Fat Percentage Calculator | ACTIVE

Use the body fat calculator to determine your percentage of body fat. Body fat percentage calculator available for women & men.
Peter Haugen's insight:

Today, I looked into calculating BMI and BFI. The method for calculating BMI is fairly simple, but there are two methods for finding BFI (body fat index). You can either use calipers or the calculator which I provided in the link. I used both methods and the results were consistent. This is useful because it is a measurement of how effective my exercises are-- I don't only want to be increasing the amounts of the weights I'm lifting; I also want to be losing bodyfat.

2nd Week Done

30 minutes of exercise daily, 1 hour of Rosetta Stone daily

Peter Haugen's insight:

I can definitely see a difference in both my language and fitness areas. I have learned a great amount through both, though the knowledge I've gained from Rosetta Stone is a bit more obvious of an acquisition. This entry is mostly just meant to log my hours while the Reflection Log you see later will be more informative about my experiences.

Week Done

Week Done | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it

30 minutes a day of exercise, 1 hour a day of Rosetta Stone.

Peter Haugen's insight:

I've completed my first week (May 5th-10th) of exercise each day, as well as Korean Rosetta Stone each day. I was really surprised at how quickly I was able to pick up the basics of Korean and I'm already starting to feel healthier with my daily exercise and better eating.

Diet Plans

Diet Plans | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it
We've worked with expert nutritionists and our famous test kitchen to develop the diet plans, including day-by-day meal plans and quick and easy recipes your whole family will love.
Peter Haugen's insight:

I need to be able to eat meals that won't negate the effects of my exercises by being low in nutrition or huge in portion-size. At the same time, I would really like for my meals to be enjoyable because I'm a bit of a gastronome, and I love looking at recipes for interesting foods. Therefore, I took it upon myself to look into low-fat meals that are high in nutritional value. I actually ate one of the recipes today for lunch-- the Chef's salad-- and I found that it increased my energy a lot. Also, it left me feeling a lot better than the greasy food I normally eat does. Altogether, this was a very useful resource because the recipes were all VERY simple and time-efficient, and there were recipes for all meals.

Aerobic Exercise Intensity and Target Heart Rate - HPMC Occupational Health Services

Aerobic Exercise Intensity and Target Heart Rate - HPMC Occupational Health Services | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it
Peter Haugen's insight:

It's important to know the ideal heart rates for the various exercises you are trying to do. Different heart rates will have different effects on your exercise. For example, a heart rate of 50 to 65% of your maximum heart rate is within the fat burning zone. That is one of the zones I will be shooting for with my exercise. I calculated this range to be between 110 and 130 beats per minute (bpm). However, I could also shoot for the "Target Heart Rate Zone" because this zone not only burns fat but also improves aerobic capacity/cardiovascular strength-- another one of my goals. This is a very valuable resource because I can use the information to precisely tune my exercises to my fitness needs. I think that in the future, as I work through my project, I will probably reference this website frequently.

[국립국어원] Korean children e-books, Picture dictionaries etc! - Hangukdrama and Korean

[국립국어원] Korean children e-books, Picture dictionaries etc! - Hangukdrama and Korean | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it
OMG I FEEL LIKE I JUST DISCOVERED A KOREAN LEARNING TREASURE CHEST People always ask me if there are any free Korean e-books around, especially those suitable for beginner level. And a lot of time, people are also looking for… Continue Reading →
Peter Haugen's insight:

I talked to my Spanish 4 teacher at school, and he told me that one of the best ways to learn a language is to read books in the language because it works in a very similar way to immersion. That led me to look into Korean books. I found this online website that talks about Korean e-books that are designed to help beginning Korean learners. The books are organized by level and there is an accompanying website for the same purpose.  This resource was valuable because it is helping me to find books that will bring me a step further into Korean comprehension.

Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it

At Marymoore Park.

Peter Haugen's insight:

As part of my daily exercise, I substituted rock climbing at Marymoore Park for the typical workout. In the future, I learned about belaying techniques which is very useful to me because it means that I will be able to pass the Belay Test at Vertical World (a climbing gym much closer to me), so I can use that space to stay fit as well in a way that interests me.

 

Time: (included in daily exercise later).

Exercise Schedule

Exercise Schedule | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it
Peter Haugen's insight:

I completed my Exercise Log and am ready to begin my workout regimen. The whole process took longer than I initially expected. I used exercises gleaned from the Men's Fitness website, and my dad's many exercise books to construct the workout plan. It was modeled after the Men's Fitness exercise plan I posted earlier which has a rotating exercise plan, and I think the amount of time needed for each workout will fit nicely into my daily routine without disrupting my AP studying times or my extracurricular meetings after school.

8 Foods that Pack on Muscle

8 Foods that Pack on Muscle | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it

Add these ingredients to your stomach and faithfully follow the directions on the package—"Lift heavy weights"—and you can whip up a batch of biceps in no time.

Peter Haugen's insight:

In my research today, I was looking for information about foods that would be beneficial to my exercise plan. This article was very useful because it gave examples of various foods that had very different, but helpful, effects on exercises. For example, salmon was recommended because of the high protein levels and Omega-3 fatty acids which improve muscle recovery after workouts. Then, I was surprised to see that coffee was also recommended because it can "help you lift longer" and increase the number of reps that you can complete. I will make sure to use these tips to help my workouts. I already eat tons of salmon, but I will definitely start eating more almonds, yogurt, eggs, etc in place of the foods that I normally eat (which tend to be abundantly high in carbohydrates).

The Best Full-Body Fat Loss Workout

The Best Full-Body Fat Loss Workout | Culminating Exhibition | Scoop.it
Take your body to the next level with this exclusive routine from our new book, The 101 Best Workouts of All-Time.
Peter Haugen's insight:

I read through this article to learn about workouts that can efficiently cut body fat. I learned that low sets with high weights and low reps (along with minimal rest time) seem to be the best combination for fat loss since the majority of the exercises covered here fit into that categorization. When I write my exercise plan, I will make sure to keep that in mind, and possibly utilize some of the exercises. The exercises that I am most interested in from this article are the dead lifts, inverted rows, squats, and dumbbell lunges. I think those exercises will help me get into the ideal heart rate for fat loss. This article was valuable to me because, as someone who is planning his own workouts for the first time, I need detailed exercise plans like this to guide me in the formation of my own plan. It was really useful to be able to look through effective exercises to be able to find ones that I was interested in doing. I also appreciated that each exercise had notes on how to do the form well, so that you are doing the exercise correctly.
