This can sometimes just be a quick jog or may be a game of table tennis at the local leisure centre.

However if I do improve them it will not be a negative gain. However even though I am improving 6 aspects of fitness I have a main goal and that is to try and improve my aerobic fitness. This will give me many benefits and through improving cardiovascular endurance I feel I can meet my aims. Improving my aerobic respiration will make me a much better player as a fit powerful athlete will perform at a much higher level than a weak unfit one. The benefits of having a higher aerobic reparatory system for me in my sport are listed below * Creates good cardiovascular capacity and strengthens muscles and tendons. * Allows players to run at a steady pace without incurring oxygen debt, getting really tired and unable to recover. * Allows your players to recover quickly from short sprints, making them more effective in the game.
