For example a gymnast may need more flexibility than say a basketball player. Another example comparing and contrasting the different training methods required are soccer and volleyball. Soccer focuses on your legs, there is a lot of running involved in this sport. The sport focus's on speed, agility, leg strength, and endurance. So therefore there would be much more training needed to be done on your legs than needed for volleyball.
Anticipation A skilled performer is able to predict what may happen in specific situations by reading cues and choosing the appropriate response to the action. Anticipation influenced my acquisition of the skill juggling, as I was able to progressively acquire better timing and faster responses due to continuously executing the skill. To be considered a skilled performer I would be required to practice in order to ensure I was capable of predicting when the correct time to execute the skill smoothly and with coordination would be. Consistency Skilled performers show much more consistency than unskilled performers. For me to become consistent in the skill juggling I would have to progress to the autonomous stage and be able to execute the skill over and over again.
P1 Components of Fitness To join any service you need to have a high level of fitness, there are many components of fitness and these are categorized into health related and skill related. Health Related Muscular Endurance Muscular Endurance refers to the body’s ability to sustain repeated contractions over a long period of time. It is important for people who take part in sports where they have to sustain exercise for long periods of time. Having good muscular endurance allows muscles to endure long periods of exercise without becoming tired. It is essential for long distance runners to have high muscular endurance so they can compete in races such as the marathon.
An athletes mind must be in tuned with the body in order to carry out the amazing feats that professional athletes do. Without proper mental self-control, an athlete may collapse under the pressure of aspects such as the temptation of steroids, pre game anxiety, intense training schedules, and slumps. Pro athletes use a combination of vigorous mental and physical exercises and techniques to preform at their peak ability. It is critical that an athlete train his mind for performance as he does his body. “Sports psychology can help athletes looking to improve their focus and confidence” (Smith and Kays).
He gives us a specific example saying “If we think an exam or puzzle will be difficult, it often will be” (Jabr). And he also states that “Studies have shown that something similar happens when people exercise and play sports: a large component of physical exhaustion is in our head” (Jabr). He is saying that our mental state is very important in using energy. The strong features of the authors argument is his quantity of evidence that he is using. And the evidence has to also has to be empirical as well.
F stands for the net force acting on that body, m for the mass, and “a” for the acceleration of the body. Typically a bigger person, or a heavyweight boxer, would apply more force in a punch. This is true because the more mass along with acceleration yields a greater net force in the equation F=ma. A hard hit comes from a hard punch. The harder the punch the quicker it has been thrown.
Principles of Fitness Training These are training methods which improve the athletes performance. FITT principles: Frequency- This is how often the athlete will train Intensity- This is how hard the athlete works for each repetition, This can be increase by adding more weight to be lifted or increasing speed or gradient on a treadmill. Time- Is how long the athlete will train for per session. Type- Is the type of training they will use, this varies the exercises the athlete does. Specificity- This is when you improve the range of movement for a specific joint, you have to perform exercises that involve that joint action.
The purpose of this phase is to recruit the fast twitch muscle fibers. To accomplish this, most exercises must be performed at near-maximum weight. However, other exercises are performed with little weight, but at a high velocity of movement. The endurance phase is employed for activities that require a high level of muscular endurance or general endurance. It involves high volume and low to moderate intensity.
This will later enable you to participate in harder workouts and exercise in the future. Muscular fitness is required in independent daily activities and unplanned emergencies. Fitness training tones one of the most important muscles, your heart. Both activity and fitness positively impact your physical and psychological well-being. How much activity is needed?
Weight Lifting I lift weights regularly; here are the reasons why. Weight lifting helps keep my body in great physical shape. When lifting weights, your heart, as a muscle, gets a workout, which in turn makes it stronger. Lifting helps build up my bones. Bones respond to lifting, making them stronger and then helping to prevent osteoporosis.
