Introduction

Component Definition Example in my sport Stamina The ability for muscle tissues to continually twitch for a period of time without fatigue allowing the ability to sustain high efficiency with little energy wasted Being able to play a full game without over tiring and having enough to last extra time if needed Strength There are three types of strength: Explosive; used for short strong bursts Dynamic; the ability to continuously work a muscle for a period of time Static strength; being able to push against a object that's hardly moving e.g. tug of war Jumping to win the ball with head Used to shoulder barge opponent off the ball giving you the possession Speed The ability to move quickly from place to place To beat players to lose ball Suppleness The durability of a muscle Allow muscles to be durable Balance To be able to maintain body position To be able to shot without falling over when weight is shifted. ...read more.

Conclusion

The muscles you have usually co inside with your somatotype Fast twitch muscle fibres (glycoltic fibres relying on glucose store for quick energy release) Fast twitching fibres contract fast hence the name, they produce large amounts of power and force. This type of muscle is anaerobic they tend to use glucose store. Sprinters would be an example of a performer who has a lot of these fibres. These performers could be called mesomorphic. Fast twitch muscle fibres (oxygenated and glycoltic ) These aren't fast twitching fibres but contract fast then the slow moving muscle fibres they contract wuicker then slow moving muscles therefore creating more force they use both aerobic and anaerobic energy. This means they still produce lactic acid. Slow twich muscle fibres (oxygenated) These are slow twitching fibres they don't product a great deal of force but they can work continuously for long periods of time they contain a lot more mitochondria then the muscle tissues this is because mitochondria is the sight of aerobic respiration. In the muscle tissue enzymes are braking down ...read more.
