Yes 4 3-2-03 (Ongoing) Yes 5 10-2-03 This week I am going to compare the Activity 1 I observed with the correct techniques I researched through textbooks. I will then analyse their performance and identify their strengths and weaknesses. Yes 6 17-2-03 Throughout this weak I intend to observe my second chosen sport- badminton, I will observe the techniques required in the serve. Yes 7 24-2-03 During this week I will compare my observed activity(badminton) with the research I gathered on the correct techniques. From this I can analyse the subjects performance and study their strengths and weaknesses. Yes 8 3-3-03 This week I will discuss my subjects quality of performance, including information on history and influences from society.

Aerobic system takes approximately excess of three minutes for energy production as in Gaelic football. In badminton, the main predominant energy system is the ATP-Pc system. The speed and immediately that ATP can be resynthesised through PC is very important. In badminton, the serves or rallies rarely lasted longer than eight to ten seconds of maximum effort before a rest (through break of rally usually) occurred. The ATP-PC system is generally regarded where bursts of speed and power occur, as in badminton. There are a number factors that need to be taken into consideration before devising a training programme. These factors are a warm up, cool down, recovery, and a training programme should be related to a specific principle, i.e F.I.T.T Principle. The importance of Warm-Up The purpose of a warm up is to get your body moving, begin raising your body temperature, it will stretch muscles, move your joints and get energy pathways working so that the proper fuel is getting to your muscles. A proper warm up will prepare your body for the workout and will make the work feel easier than it would if you started out cold. A thorough warm up can reduce the risk of injury. It can assist the body to achieve a state of readiness for vigorous activity and enhances the performance of movement required for exercise. Warm ups can provide physiological benefits for the performance which has also lead to an enhanced performance. According to 'Wesson et al' * Warm ups can prepare the body muscles for the exercise activity they will be participating in. * Warm ups release adrenaline to the heart, therefore increasing heart rates, this means a greater level of oxygen will be transported to the working muscles by an increased delivery speed. * Increased muscle temperatures increase muscle metabolism and therefore ensures a readily available source of energy * A warm up will lead to increased body temperature, this will help to decrease the chance of muscle injury as there will be increased extensibility and elasticity of muscle fibres therefore leading to increased speed and force of contractions. ...read more.


* There will be improvements in the buffering capacity of the muscle, which enables the muscles to tolerate lactic acid more effectively. * Increased capillarisation of the muscles. New capillaries may actually develop which enables more blood flow to the muscles and enables more oxygen to reach the tissues. * My performer will be able to lose weight throughout these training sessions. With all of these adaptations occurring to her body it should lead to an increase in speed, which in turn will improve her game by making her faster to the shuttle. There will also be some psychological adaptations which should occur if these training sessions are carried out properly. * If my performer loses weight, this will boost her confidence, which in turn will improve her game. * She should receive increased motivation, she should feel that she is being rewarded for her performance in the training sessions if they are carried out correctly. Overall this should improve her game, by making her more confident to go for the shuttle and strike a powerful shot. I feel that the sessions that I have planned are demanding enough to achieve an improvement in my performers speed. Over the six week period my performers speed will gradually increase. Her motivation levels should be increased and her level of performance should improve. Books * HONEYBOURNE, JOHN.
