Training and fitness for sport - task 3

Extracts from this document...


Unit 3: Training and Fitness for Sport: Task 3 Strengths and areas for improvement following completion of a selected six-week fitness training programme: The selected individual I choose was an 18 year old male that has a BMI of 22.1 which is a normal weight for his height and age. He takes part in physical activity 3-4 times per week up to a maximum of 2 hours per session. This tells me that I can easily set him endurance training sessions that last over an hour or more. In the 6 week fitness training programme I gave Dean targets that I thought were very achievable. Such as I set dean a medium intensity training session on his first day which included a short run for 20 minutes then exercises that only required a general fitness that I knew dean had. Making these exercises very achievable for dean who felt that the exercises were too easy. This tells me that there is area for improvement and that I need to set dean higher aerobic endurance goals. So I took into consideration this and made week 2 for dean harder by increasing the intensity of the aerobic endurance exercises. ...read more.


During Friday and Sunday I increased dean's medium and low intensity training sessions by making him exercise for 10 minutes more than the week before. I made these targets for Dean as I knew Dean would be able to achieve these and that they would also increase his muscular/aerobic endurance fitness levels, which are part of dean's fitness goals that he wishes to achieve by the end of the 6 week fitness programme. Dean said that at the end of week 4 he felt he could do even more exercises in week 5. So I took his advice and continued to increase his sets on Monday in week 5 from 3 sets the week before to 4 sets at present. On Wednesday I also increased dean's training session by adding on another 2 minutes to his aerobic high intensity work out. By increasing dean's exercises gradually this will help him get closer to achieving his goal of a better muscular endurance and aerobic endurance. On Friday I made dean do 15 reputations of 3 sets during his circuit training, were as in the past weeks I made him do only 3 sets of 12 reputations. ...read more.


of each exercise each week was a very achievable and motivating way to get himself fitter and achieved his goal of becoming more aerobically fit and increasing his muscular endurance fitness levels. The only recommendations I could make for Dean in the future is to make himself realistic goals and he will achieve them. If he makes ridiculously hard goals he will never achieve them, and if he fails to achieve these goals he might think he can't ever achieve his goals. Gradual increases in sets and reputations of exercises are the main key in increasing fitness levels and achieving your goals. The 6 week fitness training programme benefitted and strengthened Dean because, each week he was exercising more and therefore becoming closer each day and each week to achieving his fitness goal of being more aerobically fit, and also have a better muscular endurance fitness. Also I would recommend to Dean that he doesn't always participate in the same activities each week as it will eventually become tedious and eventually make him unmotivated to do such activities. That is why change and variety is important in any fitness training programme. ?? ?? ?? ?? Ryan McLaughlin ...read more.
