I am also trying to prove to myself that by doing the activities I can improve in the sport that I'm doing.

The sport I have chosen is gymnastics and the two areas of fitness I would like to improve on are muscular endurance and flexibility because * Muscular endurance you will need to have lots of this because when you are doing a gymnastics routine you are going to have to hold balances for long periods of time. * Flexibility you will need to be able to do the splits, flips etc. and to be able to move across the mats in an elegant way your body needs to be flexible. The tests I have taken to check my levels of fitness are the cooper run, sit ups in one min, press ups in one min, sit and reach test and the sergant jump. Here are my results: Cooper run-2700 meters Standing broad jump-99cm Sergant jump-41cm Sit and reach test-20cm Sit ups in one min-25 Press ups in one min-9 The targets I aim to ...read more.

Advantages of interval training You don't have to use much equipment and can be performed anywhere. Well suited for anaerobic type activities. Advantages for continuous training Aerobic fitness is targeted Used mainly to improve endurance because it keeps the heart and pulse rate high throughout the exercise. Disadvantages for interval training Can get boring Not suitable for sprinters Disadvantages for continuous training Can be boring Not really suitable for many sports Fartlek training Fartlek training is a form of continuous training. It changes walking, fast walking, running, jogging and fast, steady running. It originated in the Scandinavian countryside, where it often involved running up hills. It uses aerobic and anaerobic activity because of the change of pace. Some people do this when they go jogging E.G: * Walk for two lamp posts * jog for three lamp posts * Sprint for one lamp post * jog for three lamp posts * Sprint for one lamp post * Walk for 1 lamp ...read more.
