Physical Education Coursework SECTION 1 - Planning How fit am I? Monday * 30 minutes walk to and from school * Bike Ride * Double P.E in school Tuesday * 30 minutes walk to and from school * Walk around when going out in Werrington Wednesday * 30 minutes walk to and from school * P.E in school * Football Training Thursday * 30 minutes walk to and from school * P.E in school Friday * 30 minutes walk to and from school * Walk around when going out in Werrington Saturday * Walking around Hanley Sunday * Sunday Morning Football Match This schedule is my average exercise per week. By following this schedule I can assure myself that I do at least five hours of exercise a week because I always walk to and from school. I can also guarantee that I will do an hour and a half of football training on a Wednesday and play the match on a Sunday even in the close season because I play for a summer team as well. My fitness is no longer jeopardised by injury as it was earlier in the year when I broke my right fibula and tibia during a football match. For my main stage fitness test I did: A bleep test - A bleep test is when you run from distance back to another repeatedly. I finished the bleep test with a score of 11.5 Cooper Run - the Cooper run is when you run for twelve minutes around a 100 metre circuit without stopping. ...read more.


6. Shuttle Runs - This is good for flexibility and agility and stamina. For a football flexibility is needed to make sure no muscles are pulled easily. Agility is needed to change direction quickly in order to get away from the opposition. 7. The Ladder - Good for practicing quick feet and movement. In football you need this to confuse the opponent and get past him. 8. Dribbling Through Cones - This is good for agility and ball control. In football ball control is needed to keep hold of the ball and agility is good for turning quickly My Circuit Heart Rate Results Heart Rate Before Exercise (BPM) Heart Rate 3 mins After Exercise (BPM) Session 1 Session 2 Session 3 Session 1 Session 2 Session 3 Week 1 68 69 68 72 72 71 Week 2 68 67 67 71 72 70 Week 3 66 67 66 72 73 70 Week 4 66 66 66 71 70 71 Week 5 66 65 65 70 69 69 Week 6 64 65 64 69 69 68 How I did week by week Week 1 - In the first week my heart rate worried me a little because at the start of the second session it raised and after the first session I expected it to be the same. This however was soon put to the back of my mind as on the third session it was back down to 68BPM and on the third session I found out that I had begun to improve my fitness because my heart rate after the exercise session was lower than the previous two sessions. ...read more.


Type/Tedium - this is when the body gets tired of all of the exercise. This can be prevented by making the stations either more interesting or less intense. I will check for improvement by completing all of the exercises that I did in the "How fit am I" section for a second time and recording results as post test results, and then comparing them with my pre test results. Improvement should be made in every area if I have completed my circuit how I should have done. Heart Rate My heart rate is the key that tells me whether or not I have gotten fitter as it would have less BPM if I have improved my fitness level. As you get fitter your heart should, as a muscle, become stronger and be able to pump more blood around your body in one beat. This means that the BPM, as either resting heart rate or working heart rate will decrease if your heart can pump more blood around the body in one beat. Stroke volume will increase whereas recovery rate should decrease. I recorded my resting heart rate before I did any exercise so that I could get an idea of my natural heart rate and I recorded my recovery rate after three minutes of completing the exercises to see if I had fully recovered or not. By the end of the training programme I fully expected to find that my resting heart rate had decreased and that my recovery rate was also improving each week. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
