Introduction

G.C.S.E PHYSICAL EDUCATION COURSE WORK ON A SIX WEEKS PERSONAL EXERCISE PROGRAMME & TRAINING DIARY 13/11/05 VALENTINE OLIVER-UZOARU 11.1 Introduction: Swimming is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise, since it utilises the entire major muscle groups of the arms, trunk and legs; it's an ideal way of getting fit and tone your body all in one go and also, it's a sport for rehabilitation of injuries. Purpose: This personal assessment programme is designed to assess the fitness level of a beginner. At completion - after 6 weeks - I'll be able to swim more than 1000m with ease. The components measured include muscular fitness (strength and flexibility) and Cardiovascular endurance. Each test score is assigned a point value based on age-group standard and the point values are added together to determine a general level of physical fitness.

The Principle of Individual Differences Because every athlete is different, each person's response to exercise will vary. A proper training program should be modified to take individual differences into account. Some considerations: * Large muscles heal slower than smaller muscles. * Fast or explosive movements require more recovery time than slow movements. * Fast twitch muscle fibres recover quicker than slow twitch muscle fibres. * Women generally need more recovery time than men. * Older athletes generally need more recovery time than younger athletes. ...read more.
