Evaluation of 60-metre sprint test.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

In the 100m sprint there are a few skills/techniques, which you can develop such as: * Striding, (which I previously chose as my skill) * Sprint start, sometimes using the blocks. * Slowly rising your body while running in the region of 15-25 metres from the start. * Sometimes people who run the 100 metres start leaning their body forward as they are getting closer to the finishing line. This is because there are other sprinters in the other lanes who also want to win the race and this kind of skill may help them to push their body across the finish line before the other sprinters cross. The most important factors concerning my ability are gross motor ability and psychomotor ability. Gross motor ability involves actual movement, strength and speed. Psychomotor is the ability to process information regarding movement and then to put our decisions into action. In my activity it includes reaction time and limb co-ordination. 60-metre sprint test Objective To monitor the development of the persons acceleration and pick up to full flight. Required Resources To undertake this test you will require: * 400 metre track - 60 metre marked section on the straight * Stop watch * An assistant How to conduct ...read more.

Ideally, I should know how to be in an awaken and active condition for the sprint to be learned/performed. The readiness strategy includes two stages, which are executed one after another. Stage 1 is executed before the sprinter goes to the blocks, and Stage 2 is performed when he/she is on the blocks in a ready position for the start. Stage 1: General Readiness for the Race General readiness for the race can be achieved through the following procedures: * Relaxing the body and the muscles of the legs * Feeling the energy of the body and the mind * Focusing only on the blocks and the near environment * Thinking about the action of the start * Imaging the stance of the body when standing at the blocks When I am ready, I would move to the blocks or the starting line. When positioned at the blocks, the second stage of the readiness strategy should be undertaken. Stage 2: Specific Readiness for the Start Specific readiness for the start can be achieved through the following procedures. These are performed when the athlete is on the blocks: * Feeling the stance of the legs on the blocks * Feeling the distance between the blocks and legs * Feeling comfortable on the blocks * Feeling the force the legs generate * Looking ahead. ...read more.

Conclusion

Then I will lower myself until my arms are straight. The bar will weigh 10 kg. My results: 6 pull-ups Average = 6 pull ups As I look at my results for power I can see that I have met the average, so this will be counted as one of my strengths in my activity. The reaction time for my activity depends upon muscle fibres that we are born with. A learning and performance strategy such as the 3-step strategy presented on the strategies page should assist me to enter the optimum zone before the start of a sprint race. The strategy may provide me with the cognitive means to promote my overall preparation. It will be of benefit for both the novice and the skilled sprinters only if it is practiced over a long period of time. My coach and I should spend a reasonable period of time on acquiring effective mental skills, as I typically do when attempting to acquire motor skills. I can see that I have more strengths than weaknesses for my required fitness for my activity. But I still need to work on some of my techniques, I will be looking more closer at the ones which were filled in the 'sometimes' column so I can improve my overall performance. 1 Abid Zaman ...read more.
