Introduction

Section 1 Principles of training I need to take into consideration the different principles if I am going to design a circuit that is beneficial for the specific areas. Every different person has there needs. An example would be a long distance runner will need to work on their endurance and durability. So these specific areas will be the ones I hope to improve. I will have to study safety precautions so that I don't injure or hurt myself during the training program. Specificity: the area of fitness that I am planning to improve is technical bowling and endurance, the area of skill that I plan to improve is: bowling (cricket). Finally the energy system that I will use is aerobic. Progression: in my circuit I will train slow then build up. I am doing this because your body takes time to adapt to the increased demands because if you over work it there is an increased risk of pulling a muscles or another sort of injury. Overload: Overload is where you work harder than usual because you're increasing the demand of your muscles working. As basic guides lines I will use the F.I.T.T system. Reversibility: This section is not as important as the others. But it's where you reverse all of your training. E.G. the Christmas period. Tedium: This section is to help stop the boredom of training and it is where you do something repeatedly and it gets tedious. So therefore variation is needed so that you do not get bored easily during the activities. ...read more.

stretching routine be implemented prior to the start of each match, along with dynamic movements to enable bowlers and bats man to stay in optimum performance during long matches. There is dedicated section on stretching within our members area, designed purely for cricket players. Along with building a good base of strength and fitness, the skills of the game should be worked on, ideally as a team in order to produce a higher level of combined skills, as cricket is a sport that is played in two forms, batting and fielding. So to prevent injury I will need to include a warm up and a warm down to stop lactic acid forming on the muscles. To compete successfully in sports that require speed, athletes use a training technique called interval training. They exercise for a short period at a very fast pace, rest until they recover and then repeat these fast bursts until their muscles do not recover from the hard bursts. This is how lactic acid is formed on the muscles. Your muscles need energy when you exercise and they get their fuel from fat and sugar in your muscles and bloodstream. The sugar and fat are broken down through a series of chemical reactions each of which release a little energy at a time. If there is enough oxygen in your bloodstream, the sugar and fat are broken down into carbon dioxide and water which are blown off from your lungs when you breathe. When you exercise so vigorously that you can't get all the oxygen that your body needs, the sugar cannot be broken down to carbon dioxide and water and the sequence of reactions stops and a chemical called lactic acid accumulates in your muscles and spills over into your bloodstream. ...read more.

Conclusion

The station will last for 1 minute. The idea of this station is to bowl as many spin bowls at the wicket in 60 seconds. It is a aerobic station because there is running involved. Station 7: 5 Star jumps 20-M sprint. This station will last for a minute and the idea of it will be to improve stamina and continue working on my lower body and will improve my run up. This station is aerobic as I will be running. I don't want to overload my upper body so I have chosen to put this 7th in my circuit. Station 8: Catch ball & throw at wicket This station is to help my fielding technique. This is a simple station which will improve my throwing accuracy. It is a aerobic station. This station can also improve my hand-eye co-ordination which in a match will be very useful. The more catches in a match the better. I will again list the muscles used below. Station 9: Shuttle run, pick up ball and throw at wicket. This is repeated for 2 minutes and is aerobic as there is a lot of running involved. This will help my throwing and improve my accuracy for my aim at the wickets in a fielding situation. In a game this could possibly run out an opponent. The muscles used will be listed below. Slalom and catch ball and return: this is similar to my last station and will last for 2 minutes. This will improve my endurance and again will work on my throwing accuracy and this may overload my lower body as I have used it quite a lot in the last few stations. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
