Introduction

Components of Fitness, Health and Skill Related Every sport requires components of fitness. These components can range from essential to a certain sport to hardly needed. In Rugby I believe you need to have most components of fitness at a high standard to be the best player possible in my sport. Health related fitness is the ability of the heart, lungs, muscles, and joints to perform well. Regular physical activity promotes physical fitness. Physical fitness is the condition of the body that results from regular physical activity. There are five areas of Health related fitness.

Some examples on this are: Hitting a ball, starting a race. I don't believe this is too important in rugby, because there is only one aspect of the game when you need to react extremely quickly. A lineout needs quick reactions, because the lifters need to lift the player quickly when recognizing a stimulus. And the player being lifted needs to catch the ball at the right time from the Hooker's throw, who also needs to time his throw to perfection. 6. Speed: The time it takes you to move a certain distance. Some examples on this are: Sprinter, receiver. Speed is important in rugby.
