Introduction

Harriet French 19th May 2003 Year 10 GCSE Coursework Task 1) Purpose/aim of the programme in relation to prior fitness, performance levels and any injuries/ health problems. I think I have a good fitness level and do several activities to maintain my level of fitness. I play two hours of sport a week at school. And this sport varies depending on the type of activity we are doing at school. Lately we have been going hockey and rounders. I play sports because they keep my heart and lungs fit and active and the continual playing of sports increases my endurance. I also play squash once a week with my Dad at the local sports centre which increases my flexibility, reactions and aerobic fitness, Health is also about social well-being and I feel happy with the social circle I am within, and also have a close group of friends and I am always included. I feel happy and content most of the time and have a happy and enjoyable time at school. I attend school all the time and rarely have a day off. I have had no major illnesses or injuries. As extra activities to keep healthy I walk my dogs around the local park for about 30-45 minutes, I walk to and from school with my friends each day and I work from 12:00-5:00 on Saturdays and some nights in the week after school until 5:00. These activities are not exceedingly challenging but help to keep my general fitness good. ...read more.

one and a half times rounds, two times round, etc. Then, for each of my 40 second stations, I will record haw many times I can complete the activity in 40 seconds, i.e. how many sit-ups I can do, and how many shuttle runs I can do. I will also have a 40 second resting period between each station so my muscles do not become over worked, reducing the level of my performance. Each week I will record my score and hopefully I will witness an improvement in my performance. Also, by varying the activities I do, i.e. skipping, sit-ups and bench ups I can work on each of my different muscles groups whilst doing the same circuit. As we are approaching the summer period I will be able to conduct my circuit training on the school field and also the tennis courts. Activity Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 5 Minute Run (Warm Up) Bench Ups Step Ups Sit Ups Skipping Star Jumps Shuttle Runs Warm Down/ Recovery Rate The following is a results table, just like the one I will use to record my results, which shows the number of stations I will do, and the activity at the station. It also shows the five weeks I will be doing my circuit training for. I am doing a 5 minute run so I can improve upon my endurance, which is needed in a Hockey situation as you need to dribble with speed for some time to avoid opponents. ...read more.

Conclusion

This will decrease the amount of muscle fatigue I experience and prevent the appearance of lactic acid, making my muscles sore and tired after my physical activity. Reversibility is when, through either illness, injury, or lack of dedication, you stop training and your level of fitness drops. To avoid reversibility occurring within my training programme I am going to make sure I have my games kit with me for each lesson and I will carry on with my programme regardless of the weather. By frequently doing my programme I will avoid reversibility as each week I will be doing the physical exercise and it will be continually having an effect on me, whereas if I left it one month between each circuit I wouldn't really be benefiting from doing the programme. As I am spending at least 30 minutes on the entire circuit I feel this is a substantial phase of time for each muscle group to begin working, and also to improve within. To work out what the maximum heart rate for my age range should be, I have to minus my age from 220. I am 15 so 220-15=205. This is my maximum heart rate. There are different thresholds for different training zones. For the anaerobic training zone, I need to work out 80% of the maximum heart rate. So 80% of 115 is 92. This is my anaerobic threshold. For the aerobic training zone, I need to find 60% of my anaerobic threshold. So 60% of 92 is 55 (2 s.f.) This is my aerobic threshold. I can use these thresholds to see whether my own heart is on target with the figures it should be, when doing my circuit training. ...read more.
