Extracts from this document...


The warm up I will be doing will consist of: * Easy 5-minute jog to loosen my muscles. * Muscle stretches hold each for 15 seconds and swap. 3-5 minutes of exercising gently gets the blood circulating. 1.

I have chosen interval training because it is a mixture of aerobic and anaerobic respiration. It includes a work of high intensity and is good for aerobic and anaerobic training. It involves periods of work followed by periods of rest (each one of these is called a 'rep'). A number of reps are called a set; a training session would include a certain number of sets. This type of training is good for: *Team games *Racket games *Cycling *Running *Swimming. HRE components: C.V and M.E Energy Systems: Aerobic and Anaerobic Advantages: *mixture of energy systems in training session. *Easy to see someone giving up. *Takes place over short bursts of time. * Includes rest periods, which rid lactic acid. Disadvantages: * Boring. * Determination to maintain effort needed. Training Session: A) Warm up B) This is a training session to improve acceleration at the start of 100m races. 300m sprint _______ 30 sect walk = 1 rep Run to cone and then walk back = 1 rep. Repeat x 10 = 1 set. I chose circuit training because it's a series of activities set out so you avoid exercising the same muscle groups continuously. This type of training is good for all sports such as: * Football * Netball * Running * General fitness. ...read more.


This provides little additional training benefits for the amount of effort exerted. If you are overweight however, long training sessions at a low intensity (50% to 60% of maximum heart rate) employ fat as an energy source and are helpful in a weight/fat reduction program. Type = Choose an exercise that will involve as much muscle mass as possible. In other words, exercises that use the whole body or the larger muscle groups such as the legs and/or the back. *Make sure the exercise is of a dynamic contracting nature that involves movement (not isometric.) The exercise should be rhythmic to allow a consistent intensity. *The exercise should be capable of creating the proper training intensity.

I have chosen to study GCSE P.E in order to understand training methods to help me develop my study of sport. I will be creating my own P.E.P (Personal Exercise Programme). This programme will help me to improve my specific levels of fitness.
