Aims of my Personal Exercise Programme

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Aims of my Personal Exercise Programme Dance is the sport my personal exercise programme is based upon. As from my personal profile, I think that I am situated at performance level in dance of the participation pyramid. I dance twice a week in different styles such as Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Tap and I take examinations and competitions throughout the year. I would like to design an exercise programme, which will improve basic skills and techniques. Improving basic skills will be done through certain aspects of health and skill related components.

Now that my aims have been focused upon, I now need to show the health and skill related components that link into each of these aims. Therefore, when I have analyzed my fitness results I can look into more depth for the components that I need to improve to achieve my aims. Health related components: 1. Flexibility: The range of movement possible at a joint. To help me reach my aims, many of the dance movements need excellent flexibility to be able to do them effectively. Many of my sessions will be based on static flexibility rather then dynamic. This helps to lengthen the muscles surrounding the joint. Even though split leaps are involved in dynamic flexibility, to be able 2 split them 180 degrees, it involves stretching after a thorough warm up which is static flexibility, as I am holding stretches between 20 to 30 seconds. ...read more.
