P.E Footballers Programme

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

GCSE Coursework-Fitness Programme Darren Preston: P.E Footballers Programme Planning The aim of the fitness programme is to improve aerobic fitness (cardiovascular) A footballer requires cardiovascular fitness to maintain a high level of fitness when competing for the full duration of a game-90 minutes, a footballer must maintain a constant and prolonged level of effort and work from start to finish. A high stamina level also helps with the game this is highly important to a footballer because if the cardiovascular performance is not at a high level the overall performance levels will decrease before the 90 minutes is up, to ensure this does not happen this programme designed for a footballer will hopefully increase the cardiovascular fitness levels and make a 90 minute match an 'easy work out'. To show the comparisons between fitness levels before the programme compared to afterwards my 12-minute cooper run will be looked at and evaluations made to back up the other evidence for my fitness programme. If my cooper run results improve after the 2nd attempt, I will need to give reasons why as with if my results are below my expectations of improvement. ...read more.

Cooper run The cooper run consists of a 12 minute run around a 100 meter square circuit the idea for improvement in fitness is to achieve as many laps as possible within the time allowed, if on the first attempt I achieved 25 laps to say I have been successful and Improved my cardiovascular fitness the 2nd attempt at the end of the programme should see a clear difference in the two amounts of laps. To ensure I complete it properly I will stretch before the run and cool down afterwards to ensure my muscles are warmed up and will not be damaged when I start the run. In this test I must run as far as I am able to within the 12 minutes allowed even if I need to slow down it is important to continue moving so my amount of laps will not be affected. It is a maximal test that measures aerobic capacity (i.e.-must cover as much ground as possible in the time allowed) my fitness level is established according to the distance run to the established norms for the test. ...read more.

The objective is to maintain the run hence the 'continuous' it lasts for 20 minutes and the aim is to finish without having stopped during the whole time. It is not essential to complete as many laps as possible but to ensure a constant jog is maintained. This makes the heart work at a high level for a long period of time which a footballer requires to do, if at any other time shorter runs need to take place these will come easier than before completing the continuous training. At various points around the track I recorded my heart rate and noted my peaks and my lows. Towards the end I took my heart rate at 5 minute intervals to find out my recovery rate and to see if my heart rate decreased to its resting level. ...read more.
