Circuit training programme for badminton

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Circuit training programme for badminton I have decided to do my circuit training on a sport which I thoroughly enjoy, which is badminton. I have chosen this sport as I have been playing it for several years, this has enabled me to familiarise myself with all the rules and regulations involved in playing this sport. Badminton is a net wall game and is played with a shuttle rather than a ball. Badminton is a competitive sport that requires a lot of energy and good hand eye coordination. Badminton is played in the same way as tennis but a shuttle is used rather than a ball therefore when trying to hit the shuttle in the opponents half excellent hand eye coordination is required. This sport can be played in singles or doubles the matches can be played by both male and females, however a female cannot play against a male as males are physically stronger therefore it would not be a fair game. The way in which badminton is played is as follows. Once the shuttle is in play, the point continues with players attempting to hit the shuttle back and forth across the net. ...read more.

The effect of using aerobic respiration is that the heart enlarges this result in more capillaries, more blood and a larger lung capacity. Another advantage of using aerobic respiration is that the resting heart rate drops, and it takes less beats to pump blood around the body resulting in less stress on the heart. Many athletes have a low resting heart beat. The other type of training is anaerobic respiration which is when you train for a short period of time this puts a great deal of stress on the heart and the lungs therefore this not safe if you are unhealthy as this makes the walls on your heart a lot thicker and the muscles take in lactic acid better. We use both aerobic and anaerobic respiration in every day activity without even realising. In this sport different strengths are required to play different shots. There are many different shots that can be played in badminton of which some I have tried to explain. A smash shot is a hard-hit overhead shot that forces the shuttle sharply downward. ...read more.

Conclusion

Form my table I can see that on my first week I could only perform eighteen press-ups and by the 5th week I could perform 25 in one week. My results also show that there was a huge difference in skipping as in my first week period I could only perform one hundred and forty three and by the sixth week period I could perform one hundred and fifty eight these results show me that there was an improvement in my results. This circuit was mainly motivated by self motivation. In my results I can see that in the last two results there was an overload in my system so this shows that I was working some of my muscles. I would rearrange to of the circuits this is because the stretches and rest were together this made my heart rate drop but I wanted to make it stay as high as possible. In general my circuit programme was successful, it tested each area of fitness that I wanted it to. Although it was successful because there were so many people doing their own circuit training programme there wasn't enough equipment so therefore groups had to be made so the equipment could be shared Mustafa Hussain 11JK ...read more.
