Safety. Throughout the course of my circuit training I have to take in mind a number of safety considerations

Extracts from this document...


Awareness of safety aspects. Outline any potential risks with any apparatus/equipment. What factors will you need to consider when planning the order/types of exercises? Explain how and why you will prepare your body for exercise and help it to recover afterwards. Before beginning my circuit training I will remove any jewellery as it might interfere with my performance or could get caught with equipment and put myself at risk of injury. I'll make sure that I am wearing the right kit and make sure I have the correct shoes and my shoelaces are tied up tightly to protect my ankle from twisting or breaking. When planning the circuit I will make sure I don't have two activities of the same muscle group after the other so as to give a rest to the muscle to avoid strain, injuries and to not overload it. When doing my circuit training I will check for free standing equipment. I will check the safety of the area by making sure there are no obstacles in the way which could interfere with my training and even injure me. ...read more.


pulse rate back to normal after training vigorously and so to loosen up the muscles to reduce lactic acid, excrete toxins, and so allowing me to avoid strain and stiffness. Safety Throughout the course of my circuit training I have to take in mind a number of safety considerations. I have to think about how I can minimise the risk of injury whilst taking part in the circuit. As well as this I have to take in mind the clothing and footwear that I will be wearing, the setting out of my circuit and the importance of taking a warm up and cool down before and after the session. For the moment I am going to evaluate the importance of a warm up and a cool down. Warming up involves a general warm up as well as a specific warm up. A good warm up will involve a gentle jog followed by more vigorous running. Warming up is essential before exercise starts. ...read more.


Once this is done some stretching exercises should be performed. Cooling down is essential after performing vigorous exercise. A cool down will prepare the body so that it in turn avoids any muscles soreness or injury the following day. During the cool down the body undergoes a number of other changes. Normally these changes are the total reverse of those shown in a warm up. The changes are: o the heart rate is decreased o the body temperature is decreased o the rate of respiration is decreased o sweating stops For my own circuit training programme I have decided to perform a five minute cool down. During these five minutes I am going to: o take a very light jog around the school gym o finish off with a very light walk o perform some stretching exercises Another way in which I can also cool down would be whilst putting away all the equipment which has been used for the programme. Whilst moving around the room and collecting the equipment the body itself is also recovering from the previous exercise. ...read more.
