Before designing my training programme I took part in a variety of fitness tests to identity what my current level of fitness was like. These are as it follows: Before I started the fitness training programme, I did the multi fitness test and got level 10. 2, which is a high score for someone of my age in the Euro fit reference scales. /2 Was the programme at the right level for you? Explain why/why . not As a result of my fitness test score being classified as high I decided to start my programme spending two minutes at each station.
Which I thought I should be able to manage but would push me, My only rest and recovery time would be getting to the next station. Therefore it was at the correct level. /2 Were the exercises in the Correct order? Explain why/why not. /2 Explain how you applied The principles of progression/overload. I applied the principles of overload and progression because I made myself work gradually harder each session by spending 30 seconds longer on each station each time, so pushing myself harder. This meant I gradually increased each session by a few seconds each time I did for each exercise.
/2 Were the exercises/ Activities the correct ones to choose? Explain why/why not. The activities were the correct ones to choose as they link directly to the components of fitness required in the game of football, for example the ability to keep going in a game of football playing in centre midfield requires a lot of running and stamina. /2 Performing Make comments to explain the statements/questions in the first column (max 6 marks) Explain how you applied the principles of Progression/overload. /2 Were the exercises/
Activities the correct ones to choose? Explain why/why not. /2 Was the programme easy to manage (set up, do, record progress etc)? The equipment was reasonably easy to position. I had to plan the session thoroughly making sure that I did a plan of where each activity was going to be located at what time of the circuit. This would help me realize if there was going to be enough space between the stations. /2 Were the exercises in the Correct order? Explain why/why not. The orders of the exercises were correct because I did not use the same muscle.
I also had a chance to recover so I was ready when they were needed again. Instead, I worked on one muscle as I commenced in the next station that the muscle relaxed as I worked on different muscle. /2 Did you enjoy it and work to your limit? How do you know? I found the circuit to be enjoyable as well as motivational as I was determined to attain the rate of exercise that was doing. But during the session I had to stop as I really pushed myself and needed to rest. /2 10 Monitoring Make comments to explain the statements/questions in the first column (max 6 marks)
Were the exercises/ Activities the correct ones to choose? Explain why/why not. /2 Were the exercises in the correct order? Explain why/why not. /2 Did you make any Changes to your programme? Explain why you did/did not do so. I did not feel the need to change my programme in any way as the exercises were having the predicted effect on the muscle group I was thinking of. They were intended to work, as I could cope with the increased workload and I had obviously developed muscular endurance. /2 Explain the effects Performing had on you in any of the 5 sessions.
In the third session I was really exhausted as I had to force myself to keep going. I think I felt this tired because I had done a session the day before and my body and muscles in particular, had not had enough time to recover fully. /2 Were the results you Achieved what you expected? Explain why this was/was not the case /2 11 Final evaluation Make comments to explain the statements/questions in the first column (max 6 marks) Explain the fitness test result(s) you achieved After you finished your training programme. /2 Was the programme easy
To manage (set up, do, record progress etc)? /2 Explain what progress or improvements you have made as a result of completing the Programme. My cardio respiratory system had obviously developed as it could cope with supplying oxygen to working muscles so I did not feel not much muscular fatigue. /2 Did you enjoy it and work to your limit? How do you know? /2 If you were going to Continue with the programme what changes would you make? Copyright (c) 2007 AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.
