Introduction

Circuit Training-GCSE PE- > Arm dips- to improve my arm strength. I was going to do one and a half minutes worth of sit ups, but when I tried it when I was practising I found this very hard and tiring. I have now changed it to a fixed load of 20 arm dips. This will help me in netball because you need strong arms as your constantly passing the ball. It is also helpful for shooting. > Footwork- this is to improve my netball footwork. I will do one and half minutes. Whilst someone else is having their throwing skills, I'll be doing my footwork. In netball, I always move my feet in the wrong way, and I don't land correctly. > Burpees- to improve my leg strength. It is a combination of squat thrusts and star jumps. My leg strength is not very good. ...read more.

> Sit-ups- this is to improve my abdomen strength. 1-minute worth of sit-ups. Although this is not specific to netball, this will improve my general fitness. > Shooting- this is to improve my shooting because I'm not so good in shooting.

Conclusion

I am going to do my circuit programme in late winter. I haven't exercised much as we had a Christmas break, and I have been doing a lot of desk work. Also in the middle of my six-week training programme, I will have a half term break. These reasons have and will bring my general fitness levels down. The activities in my circuit are appropriate for me. In the six-week period, I shall progress in the circuit and make it harder for me. I shall increase my fixed loads gradually, but making sure I don't change the time. I will not overload my body too much and will set myself realistic targets for me to achieve. For some of my activities, I shall keep the duration longer and increase the fixed load. For other activities, I shall simply make them last longer to make myself work harder. To keep boredom low, I will bring in a personal stereo and listen to music. This is because it will help in blocking out most of the hard work I will actually be doing. ...read more.
