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. Definition of health: 'a state of physical and social and mental well being, where we are free from disease. Definition of skill: 'is an ability, usually learned and acquired through training, to perform actions which achieve a desired outcome. Definition of health-related components: Those dimensions of fitness that are psychologically based and determine how well a performer can meet the physical demands of an activity. ...read more.

Many dances are between 2 and 3 minutes long. This may not seem long, but to keep the muscles working each second and same amount of energy used for each movement is very difficult. I would like to improve maintaining my energy and strength as when you lack in both of these, you tend to lose the audience and when performing that is a big loss. * With reference to the above comment, to keep going that long, I need to improve my cardiorespiratory endurance to improve my muscular endurance. If I feel that I lack in energy, I need to enhance my energy levels by making sure I'm getting enough oxygen around the body, especially to the muscles. This is not just for competitions and exams but dance practice in general. This way, if I'm improving throughout my dance classes, by exams and competitions, my cardiorespiratory endurance should be above average and easier to maintain. ...read more.

Conclusion

This is quite difficult if you are short of energy and stamina level is low. I would like to improve changing direction from one position to the next taking as little time as possible keeping it neat and tight at the same time. 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.
