Action plan to improve my performance in rounders.

Extracts from this document...


Action plan Agility is an important component of rounders as it is used to run around the bases and also for being able to field efficiently. Fielding is important as you need to field the ball effectively including catching, ground work and throwing as it will reduce the oppositions chance of scoring rounders. Anatomy & Physiology ? Warm up ? Increased speed of contraction and relaxation of warmed muscles ? Dynamic exercises reduce muscle stiffness ? Greater economy of movement because of lowered viscous resistance within warmed muscles ? Facilitated oxygen utilization by warmed muscles because haemoglobin releases oxygen more readily at higher muscle temperatures ? Facilitated nerve transmission and muscle metabolism at higher temperatures; a specific warm up can facilitate motor unit recruitment required in subsequent all out activity ? Increased blood flow through active tissues as local vascular beds dilate, increasing metabolism and muscle temperatures. ? Allows the heart rate get to a workable rate for beginning exercise ?

Perform two to four sets for six to 10 seconds per set. Rest a minute to a minute and a half between sets. Adaptation 3 Add sprints to the end of the hurdle movements. Starting in the same position, sprint laterally to the right over the hurdles and back. Then, as you step over the last hurdle, perform one of the following listed sprints. ? Immediately sprint forward eight yards. ? Turn right, and sprint straight ahead over the hurdles eight yards. ? Drop step and sprint straight away from the hurdles eight yards. Verstegen suggests two to three sets of four to six reps on the hurdle drills and sprints. Start with the first and simplest sprint pattern, and progress to performing the drop step and sprint movement. In-season three-hurdle drill variation ? perform the listed hurdle-to-sprint movements continuously, jogging back to the hurdles to perform the next sprint. For example, sprint laterally over the hurdles to the left and back to right; then sprint forward eight yards. Next, jog back to the hurdles; immediately sprint laterally over the hurdles to your left and back to the right, then turn toward the hurdles as you step over the last hurdle and sprint straight over the hurdles eight yards. Jog back to the hurdles and continue this pattern for each sprint. ...read more.
