Purpose /Aim of the personal exercise plan: My task is to plan and perform a personal exercise programme for a certain time for which I have chosen to be is once a week in six weeks. The circuit will helping to improve a beginners fitness in football, These are the aims/ goals that I would like to have achieved after this personal exercise plan has been completed. * Improve overall performance in football. * Raise standard from a school player to county or national. * To develop new skills and techniques. The circuit I have to complete has many advantages. It only requires little space as there is not any equipment being used except for a pull up bar. Which is approximately 6ft high. The circuit will begin with a warm up and the circuit will follow with a warm down. This is very important in the circuit and any other activity or sport.

They also need good pectorals because of their power they need to be stronger than the striker.

The exercises were also specific to a players needs, the circuit was laid out in a specific order to stop tediousness and also the training was carried out every week to stop reversibility. If I were to carry on with this program I would look at changing the circuit to stop it become boring, because once its boring people will chose not to carry out the training.
