Physical Education: Personal Exercise Plan Evaluation

Extracts from this document...


PEP Evaluation I think that my Personal Exercise Plan has been effective because I implemented the use of various training principles. My initial aim was to improve my speed, agility and cardiovascular fitness as I consider these to be the key components of fitness and these were my weaknesses in my Rounders performance. At the beginning of my 6 week training programme I tested my speed with a timed 30m dash, I tested my agility and I tested my cardiovascular fitness with the Multistage Fitness test. I did not overexert myself in the first week of my programme as I understood that I would need to use principle of Progression to gradually work my way into training.

I also expected to see a change in my muscle definition and slight muscle hypertrophy of my biceps and triceps but I was disappointed to see that my body shape had not changed. If I were to progress with my programme I would continue to use the FITT principle in relation to my training sessions. I would adapt my sessions over a period of time then would change it again as the body needs to needs to overload in order to improve. I enjoyed the training programme because I took part in activities which I find interesting. Exercise also helps physically, mentally and socially. ?? ?? ?? ??
