Fitness tests outlined and results evaluated

Introduction

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. Reach forward and push as far as possible. ...read more.

Measure the back of your heels against metre rulers then compare your score with the ratings given. * Validity: There are published tables to relate results to potential level of fitness and the correlation is high. * Reliability: Test is generally reliable assuming same technique is used. Speed- 30 metre sprint * From a 1-metre flying start, the performer is recorded how long they take to cover 30 metres. * Validity: Widely accepted as being valid, especially when a flying start is used, this eliminates the effect of reaction time. * Reliability: use of timing gates greatly improves reliability of this test. Agility- Illinois test * To perform this test, using the diagram you need to mark out direction of running and, using cones, place where the performer has to run. At start of the test, the performer lies down on their stomach and once their partner has made a signal to start, the performer stands up and does the course as quickly as possible. ...read more.

Conclusion

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. ?? ?? ?? ??
