AQA GCSE PE/Games: Fitness and training for a specific end

Extracts from this document...


AQA GCSE PE/Games Health-related Exercise/ Training Programme Candidate name: Laura Colebrook Candidate no: 5086 Centre number: 19135 Sport/Activity: 200 metres (Games candidates must do a game activity). Training method: Interval Training __________________________________________ For Teacher use on Teacher: Ms Nicholls Group: 10L5 Planning (Max 20) Performing (Max 20) Monitoring (Max 10) Evaluating (Max 20) I unfortunately injured myself, before starting this piece of coursework. I produced fluid on my hip and was on crutches for one and a half months. I was diagnosed with sever Hyper Mobility Syndrome and I was advised by the specialist to refrain from high impact activities, such as running. I have therefore, been unable to complete this programme myself. However, I have planned it as if I was actually participating in it. Moreover, when it comes to evaluating, I have selected a student to analyse her programme. Planning Purpose/aim of the programme. Personal fitness profile. Explain how fit you think you are, and if you have any injuries or health problems. Outline how much physical activity you get in a typical week. State what targets you expect to achieve by the end of the 5 sessions in terms of aspects of fitness/skills you want to improve. 5 marks Awareness of safety aspects. Outline any potential risks with any apparatus/equipment. What factors will you need to consider when planning the order/types of exercises? Explain how and why you will prepare your body for exercise/and help it to recover afterwards. 5 marks I need to consider my injury and my health problems, I cant over do it or my hip will begin to hurt. In addition I need to make a training programme which is suitable for my chosen event. Warming up gradually prepares the body for the exercise to follow. Only when the body is warmed up and fully prepared is it ready for the shock of a training session or competition. ...read more.


Although it was a good session worked well. 2 A fantastic session, good warm up, cools down and excellent times, WELL DONE! 3 An average session, it started off well but because of the weather Kristina couldn't be bothered, it was hot and sticky so not much training took place. 4 A good session, she completed everything, she made good times but her cool down was not sufficient and her lactic acid will not flush out. A lack of oxygen debt too. 5 Worked well through session, muscles were tired and didn't do a cool down. However, good times, improved. Session Recording: heart rate 2 marks Recording: recovery rate 2 marks 1 70 1st min 101 3rd min 95 5th min 73 2 72 1st min 96 3rd min 84 5th min 73 3 71 1st min 94 3rd min 86 5th min 72 4 70 1st min 95 3rd min 74 5th min 73 5 68 1st min 95 3rd min 79 5th min 69 Concluding Statement/summary of results 2 marks Overall, I feel Kristina worked well, her heart rate went back to normal quite quickly which suggests she is fairly fit. As the faster your heart rate goes back to its resting heart rate the fitter you are. However, her cool downs were not sufficient, this could cause bad muscle repair, no lactic acid removal and low glycogen stores. Evaluation Planning Make comments to explain the statements/questions in the first column (max 6 marks) Refer to her pre-test score(s) for any fitness test(s). Kristina's pre test scores are as follows: Agility test (sec) 17:32 17:03 16:59 30 metres sprint (sec) 4:94 4:75 5:31 standing broad jumps (metres) 1.75 1.65 1.68 As you can see Kristina has similar times for the agility times and a very quick 30 metres sprint, which are all roughly similar times. For standing broad jump, the jumps are quite spread out, so there is room for improvement. ...read more.


Explain what progress or improvements she has made as a result of completing the programme. Kristina has made slight improvement but not major. This is because the training session were not frequent enough so therefore she could improve her fitness, as the only way to improve is to have more frequent training session instead of waiting 4 or 5 days. Also there was a 2-week break from physical education as there was work experience. So Kristina wouldn't possibly had been doing physical activity. There was not always regular P.E lesson and she did not always do the training programme, as our teacher gave us other related activities. /2 Did she enjoy it and work to her limit? How do you know? I think Kristina worked well as she did improve her times. However, I don't think she worked to her limit and there was still "some in the tank". As I thought she wasn't raising her heart rate high enough, by sweating and feeling tired. If she were going to continue with the programme what changes would she make? I think Kristina should improve on her cool down routine, as I feel she did not drain out the lactic acid caused during her training programme. This could cause injury problems later on, as on some sessions she did not even do a cool down. By not having a cool down will not store her glycogen levels for further exercise. Also if they were to re-do this it would be a better idea to make the training session more closer together instead of having a session every 4 or 5 days. This is because when completing this training programme there was big time gaps in between sessions, you really need to do the exercises more frequently to improve fitness, without overdoing your body to cause injury. I think that she has to work on her power, as standing broad jumps requires explosive power. Maybe including power related exercises in her programme to improve this skill. 1 ...read more.
