Introduction

Component Definition Example in my sport Stamina The ability for muscle tissues to continually twitch for a period of time without fatigue allowing the ability to sustain high efficiency with little energy wasted Being able to play a full game without over tiring and having enough to last extra time if needed Strength There are three types of strength: Explosive; used for short strong bursts Dynamic; the ability to continuously work a muscle for a period of time Static strength; being able to push against a object that's hardly moving e.g. tug of war Jumping to win the ball with head Used to shoulder barge opponent off the ball giving you the possession Speed The ability to move quickly from place to place To beat players to lose ball Suppleness The durability of a muscle Allow muscles to be durable Balance To be able to maintain body position To be able to shot without falling over when weight is shifted. ...read more.

hips in a circular motion clock wise and anti clockwise make sure feet are shoulder width apart Triceps - Hold elbow of a straighten arm then bring it across your body Sprint Side skip Side skip High knees In and outs Heal to bums pass Backwards run Control dribble into box Shoot The cool down Across width of the pitch: Light jogging, heal to b*m flicks, high knees, side steps, run backwards then a steady walk round the pitch. Stretches like in the warm up but hold the stretch for 16-18 seconds For abdominals place feet a little wider then shoulder width put one arm straight up in the air while the other reaching down the outside of your leg. Make sure to stretch the aching tight muscles well as it improves healing time Then another walk round the pitch Affects of warm up and cool down Warm up Warm ups prepare the body for physical activity it reduces the risk of injury, cramp by reducing lactic acid build up and increases blood flow and cardiac output ...read more.

Conclusion

The muscles you have usually co inside with your somatotype Fast twitch muscle fibres (glycoltic fibres relying on glucose store for quick energy release) Fast twitching fibres contract fast hence the name, they produce large amounts of power and force. This type of muscle is anaerobic they tend to use glucose store. Sprinters would be an example of a performer who has a lot of these fibres. These performers could be called mesomorphic. Fast twitch muscle fibres (oxygenated and glycoltic ) These aren't fast twitching fibres but contract fast then the slow moving muscle fibres they contract wuicker then slow moving muscles therefore creating more force they use both aerobic and anaerobic energy. This means they still produce lactic acid. Slow twich muscle fibres (oxygenated) These are slow twitching fibres they don't product a great deal of force but they can work continuously for long periods of time they contain a lot more mitochondria then the muscle tissues this is because mitochondria is the sight of aerobic respiration. In the muscle tissue enzymes are braking down ...read more.

  1. Personal exercise plan

    * Type (The type of exercise performed) Reversibility All physiological adaptations that occur during training can be reversed or lost as a result of ending training or lacking in effort. The term 'use it or lose it' does occur with the benefits of training as the loss of muscle oxidative enzymes occurs faster than the decrease in muscle capillirisation.

    The diversity of learning tools (from interactive, online textual materials to streaming video to chat rooms and discussion boards) means that students have many more choices in an online or hybrid course than they had in a more traditional, face-to-face environment.

  1. Personal Exercise Programme

    Once you have completed your period of exercise, it is then very important to cool down. The cool down should start off with a short, low intensity jog lasting for about 5 minutes and then having completed that you should stretch off all your major muscles again just like you did after the warm up.

    The game is fast changing so this is important * Co ordination- this is the ability to work the hands, feet and eyes simultaneously. This is needed to keep the ball and stick under control. * Power- explosive strength exerted in an action for example in hockey, hitting the ball * Balance- the ability to maintain equilibrium.

  1. PEP (Personal Exercise Program)

    Frequency - I shall undertake my strength training programme three times per week; Tuesday mornings before school, Thursday's after school and Friday's after school. Intensity - Each session I shall aim to complete three sets of 6-10 reps each cycle of the machines which I shall aim to complete three times during the whole session.

  2. Personal Exercise Programme.

    extracts from Sharkey, B J, 2002 The benefits of resistance training are varied and great: 'Resistance training offers greater development of muscular strength... mass... maintenance of Basal Metabolic Rate... bone mineral density... glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity' (http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/101/7/828, 2000) The two principles I intend to base my programme on are S.P.O.R.T.

    you are rarely in the water for more than about two minutes. The test I carried out for body composition rated me as acceptable. I weigh 72 kg and my height is 180 cm. To test my flexibility I carried out the sit and reach test.

  2. The Effects of Cool and Warm Temperature on Selected Physiological Variables.

    in a hot environment (30oC) and cool conditions (15oC) at a controlled relative humidity of 50% for both. The temperature on each of these occasions was controlled in an environmental chamber in which the subjects performed. All subjects cycled at a fixed power of 150 watts and a speed of 60 RPM, which corresponds to an exercise intensity of approximately 65% VO2 max.
