Introduction

PE GCSE Coursework: Personal Exercise Program Introduction It is my intention to plan, undertake and evaluate a six week personal exercise programme to improve my Agility, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance and Flexibility. These elements that I will improve will be specifically directed to improve my overall performance in my chosen sport; Basketball. Identification of Fitness Components * Agility and Balance: Agility is the key component that I will need to work upon, it is one of the key components that a high level basketball player needs to have due to the constant direction changing in order to keep possession of the ball which in many cases is resultant in points scored. * Flexibility: Flexibility is not a key factor yet still vital nonetheless in many situations i.e. rebounding and one on one plays, due to this I will need to improve my flexibility slightly as I feel it is not up to standards. * Co-Ordination: Co-ordination is extremely important as you need very good hand eye co-ordination as in basketball the objective is to get the ball into the basket in order to maximise points for your team, co-ordination is also important when rebounding, passing, dribbling, basically every aspect of basketball. ...read more.

Training In my six week training program I will be focusing on Agility, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance and flexibility, because these are the areas which I feel that I have to improve on to become a better basketball player. I will train by using FITT and SPORT, with these two methods I feel that I should obtain some good overall results. F.I.T.T: Frequency- Frequency is the number of times I will repeat a certain exercise, I will be focusing on increasing the number of repetitions on a daily basis, and this will ensure I will be making improvements as the level of difficulty for that specific weight will be decreasing as I progress. Intensity- Intensity is the level of difficulty I set my exercise program and how hard I will work each time, in order to improve I will need to increase the exercise intensity over the exercise program schedule. I will use intensity in my PEP by increasing the weights that I am using in my training session each week, this will make it more difficult each time and as a result I have increased the intensity. Time- time is the length/duration of which the exercise will last. ...read more.
