Introduction

Name: Phillip Daniel Harrison Gender: Male Age: 15 Weight: 75kg Height: 182cm Medical Info: N/A Past Injuries: Two fractured vertebrates (T5, T6) at the age of 9 from an incident at home on the stairs.

One of the main muscle groups I focus on are the shoulders because these are the muscles that I will be using most in my swimming. The stretching session I have will last for only five minutes and I will hold each stretch for 15 seconds. Time (M) 0-5 5-10 10-15 15-20 20-25 Exercise Static stretches 400-600 metres stroke 4 x 100 metres building 1-4 200 metres Leg kick only 400-600 metres stroke count Intensity Low Low - Medium Building from Low - High Medium Medium Stroke NONE Front crawl + Backstroke Front Crawl Any stroke Front crawl Focusing on skill. Mental phase During my mental phase of my warm-up I usually think about my tactics for the event ahead and prepare my mind for the event. This improves my state of mind before the exercise this helps as it makes my mind ready for the start of the event. A mental phase of a warm-up is a necessity as it will make sure your mind is ready and will not be unprepared for anything that could happen at the start of the event that you are taking part in.

Conclusion

Work effort review In my P.E.P I felt I worked to the correct level because my pulse rates show generally that I was working in the aerobic training zone and as my heart rates show I must of worked hard to build upon my already quite well trained circulatory system so to improve it more proves to me if not anyone else that I must have been working hard. Fitness Test Original test result Test Result after P.E.P Comments Sit ups 38 49 Even though I did not make the target I had made for myself of 50 I was extremely happy to of increased my result by 11 20m sprint 2.90 (secs) 2.81 (secs) I was very happy with this result even though it may not be very reliable because it is timed by a person who may of stopped the watch to later or to early but I was very happy to improve on the time I had done previous. Hand Grip Dynamometer 75 (Kg) 78 (Kg) I did not improve much on this fitness test which I thought was a bit weird but it was an improvement non the least maybe next time I will add in more explosive power exercises. Final evaluation All in all I was satisfied with how my P.E.P went. I found the sessions challenging but rewarding and despite not reaching all my test targets I am happy with the result. I have considered to do some of the exercises as just another way to aid swimming and a different type of training outside of the pool which will certainly remove some tedium from all the training that I have to do. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
