Introduction

Health Promoting Exercise/Fitness Training Programme Assessment Introduction: For this Assessment I have to construct a circuit-training programme for a particle sport. The sport that I have chosen is football. I must include in this piece of work, the fitness exercises that will be used in the circuit and reason for inclusion, the skill activities that will be done during the programme plus the reason for choosing them, and comments on the organisation, implementation, monitoring and progression. 1) Training Programme: Below is a list of the exercises that I have included in my training programme for my chosen sport, football. I have decided to use this type of training method, because it has many advantages, which will help me to raise my level of fitness, thus increasing my performance in my chosen game. It is important to realise that the exercises that I have chosen and that are listed below have been chosen as they are related to the sport I have chosen. The main effects of circuit training are that it improves general muscle strength, endurance, muscle tone and posture. These are happen because of the way that the certain exercises are carried out. Circuit training also increases bone density, metabolic rate and also decreases body fat percentage. I am going to focus on increasing muscle endurance. Aspects of training that I must consider is doing a warm up and warm down before and after the circuit. Reasons for deciding to do a warm up are that it will gradually increase both my heart rate and breathing. This will benefit me, as it will prepare my body for the exercise to follow. The warm up will also ensure that the blood flow to my muscles gradually increases, and also prepare me mentally for the hard work to follow in my circuit. The warm up will include a period of gentle exercise that will use the whole of my body, for example light jogging. ...read more.

You could then see how fast you could complete this activity but remembering to have as much control over the ball as possible. I have decided to include this as one of skill activities as it will help to increase the amount of control I have of the football when it come to a game situation. As dribbling is a very large part of the game, it will be a very good activity to include. * Shooting the ball into a goal: This would be useful, but only if the person doing it, needs it for his/her part of the game. As I would need it because of my role in a game of football I have decided to include it in my training programme. I would help to increase the amount accuracy and power that I have in my shooting and would be a valuable part of my training. Due to my role in the game, which means that I need to shoot in football, I believe that this activity is needed in my skill activity. Using a football I would practice shooting it into an open goal. The range at which I shoot would change and whether the ball is rolling or stationary would also be a factor that I would change. I would also change the angle at which I shoot to the goal. With all of these factors I could change, it would be a very good idea to include this activity in my training programme as it would increase the amount of skill I have when it comes to shooting. * Passing the football to a target: This activity would help to increase the accuracy of my passes. I would put the ball down and from that I would pass the ball to different targets. The target would be another person, and he/she could move around to make the pass more difficult. ...read more.

Conclusion

Vertical jumps 9) Step-ups 5) Squat thrusts This new order was a lot easier to complete and I found the circuit more enjoyable to do. The schedule of the circuit was now very enjoyable to do and wasn't too difficult to complete. I found that the amount of reps that I completed was correct and the progression and increase in the amount of reps was correct. This feeling was brought about by the fact that I knew I was getting some where and the circuit was working for me. The circuit also gave me a lot more confidence and knowledge of what my limits are. This made the circuit a lot more enjoyable as I knew that I was getting some where. The circuit was also very interesting as I found what my limits where and what I was able to do. I found that the schedule easy to set up and complete. This is due to the careful planning and consideration that I put into the circuit before I conducted it. I made sure with preliminary testing that the orders of the exercises were in the right order and that the amount of reps was correct. The training programme has been complete now and there is no need to continue with the training. This will result in reversibility and means that all of the hard work that I have done will be lost and if I ever wanted to start the circuit again I would have to start again and work from the bottom. However, I am pleased with the results of the programme and have decided to carry on with the circuit training. Now that I have completed a circuit and know a lot more about them I could use this knowledge to conduct future planning of a circuit. I believe that the circuit I did was very well planned and was an enjoyable task to complete. The circuit has worked and the desired effect was achieved. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
