Fitness tests outlined and results evaluated

Extracts from this document...


Fitness tests outlined and results evaluated As well as conducting tests for the 6 components I am trying to improve I decided to also monitor flexibility and balance to see if they went up due to increases or decreases in the other components. The tests I used for the main six components are described above in the health and skill related fitness sections and the tests I used for Flexibility and balance are described below. Validity: The validity of a test assesses whether the test actually measures what it claims to measure. Reliability: the reliability of a test considers whether the test will produce the same or similar results when the test is repeated and where there has been no change in fitness levels. Flexibility test > The sit and reach test- Start by sitting on the floor with shoes removed and feet flat against the table with legs straight.

So I will be trying to maintain my Speed, Power, Agility and co-ordination, whilst trying to improve on my cardiovascular endurance and strength endurance. I will also monitoring my Flexibility and Balance but I will not be trying to improve them, more seeing if they improve as a result of the other components improving. Because I have now found out that the two main elements that I will be trying to improve are cardiovascular endurance and strength endurance I will focus my pep more on these two components than the others. To do this I will include more of this type of components exercises than the others, however they will be included still in my pep. To be specific I would like to increase the amount of sit-ups I can do in 30 seconds to around 30 rather than 20, and I would like to be able to get my bleep test to 14 rather than 10.2 This would put me on the excellent/good boundary for both and would be the biggest success of my pep if I achieved these goals. ?? ?? ?? ??
