Introduction

A method of fitness training for the components of physical fitness Physical fitness Muscular endurance is the ability to produce repetitive movements of a muscle or muscle group and not to get tired while doing so. A boxer will need good muscular endurance because they go all out every round. It is like constant sprinting. A method of training that can be used to develop muscular endurance is circuit training. Circuit training utilizes a group of strength exercises that are completed one exercise after another. Each exercise is performed for a specified number of repetitions or for a time before moving on to the next exercise. The exercises within each circuit are separated by timed rest intervals and each circuit is separated by a longer rest period. By doing circuit training you will improve your muscular endurance. Flexibility is the ability to perform a joint action through a range of movement. ...read more.

Aerobic endurance is the ability to continue exercising for a long period of time. To do this the body needs to transport and use the oxygen that is breathed in during exercise Paul beashel, 2006. Aerobic endurance is an important to tennis because during a tennis match you have 25 seconds of rest between points and 90 seconds at changeovers. It will be difficult to recover throughout a match if your aerobic fitness is poor you will be fatigue by the end of a match. One method of training for aerobic endurance is interval training, this is were "Interval running enables the athlete to improve the workload by interspersing heavy bouts of fast running with recovery periods of slower jogging. The athlete runs hard over any distance up to 1k and then has a period of easy jogging. During the run, lactic acid is produced and a state of oxygen debt is reached. ...read more.

Agility is the ability to change the body's position in a short length of time Paul beashel, 2006. A tennis player has to change direction to be able to hit the ball this will give them time for there next shot. A good way of improving agility is to do agility ladders. Agility ladder uses a wide range of different foot and movement patterns. These skilled movements become second nature and the body is able to respond quickly to various angles that are required in sports. Strength is the ability of specific muscles to exert force in a single contraction. A rugby player will need good strength to tackle the player. A good way to improve your strength is Resistance machines, they come in many shapes, styles, and sizes. Working muscle groups, they can be used in different positions sitting, lying, or standing, so the machines may look different. Some equipment uses a series of cables to pull up to make your muscles produce extra force to overcome the resistance. ...read more.
