Our goals for the midfielder are to improve endurance and enhance lactic tolerance. We also aim to improve the athlete’s lateral quickness and anticipatory skills, and build the players body to maintain during the physical beating of the season. Most importantly our goal is to improve his performance, speed, agility, and quickness.
When exercising, the weight or stress you’ve produced to the muscles can create resistance and then contraction of the muscles can be drawn out. These contractions enable the muscles significantly increase in size. Along with the increase in size is the increase in strength as well. Repeated exercise, coupled with weight bearing activities, hypertrophy, and medical term for increase in muscle size, of the muscles will be evident.
This term in PE we have been focusing on energy systems and exercise physiology principles in Touch Football. In touch there are three positions: middle, link and wing. My fitness results, when compared to an Australian Touch Association player (ATA player), are only satisfactory. My speed and cardiovascular endurance were within range of ATA players but my agility was not, therefore, I have chosen wing as my best-suited position as the key fitness components for this position are speed, agility, power and cardiovascular endurance. In order for me to improve in my least acquired skill, agility, I must incorporate agility based skill exercises into my Dingo Flats training program. The purpose of this presentation is to present and evaluate the
Term 3 commenced with each boy studying HPE in year 11, participating in the sport Touch Football. In this subject the cohort has been analysing the relationships between different energy systems and components of fitness that need to be acquired to successfully participate in the physical activity. Components of fitness are described as basic qualities that demonstrate the ability to complete daily tasks with energy, reduced health risks, and participate in a variety of physical activities (1). This presentation will give a thorough reflection on Touch football and what energy systems are of most importance to the sport. I will also be reflecting on the components of fitness that I personally need to work on which is observed from primary data collected in the HPE classes. Also methods of improvement toward specific components of fitness.
For this term’s HPE unit, we have learnt about core physiological principles as well as fitness and training concepts, and how this would relate to touch football. This knowledge was then utilised to design, evaluate and modify an individual one week training program (microcycle) to enhance performance in touch football. The task of this assessment is to analyse the training program upon completion, by evaluating its strengths and weaknesses and finally modifying this ‘microcycle’ to rectify any weaknesses that may have be identified.
In conclusion, my opinion is that footballers don’t perform such a simple, undemanding and effortless job, they dedicate their lives to this sport so that the people can enjoy it and it is quite complex for them to maintain their physical strength and fitness to survive ninety minutes running. They also are under a lot of
There are eight physiological adaptations that a touch football player would experience in response to training; these include a change in stroke volume, heart rate, cardiac output, oxygen uptake, lung capacity, hemoglobin levels, muscle hypertrophy and the effect on slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers.
This task is about applying a 5-week training program which aims at improving my physical capabilities as a touch football player in order to find and justify a position based on my fitness level. I will discuss and evaluate the link between each position and the amount of fitness required to strive in a youth district level touch football environment. My best position will be evaluated and justified by the results of the pre-training tests and the post-training tests which I took part in.
After being established in the 70’s, Touch Football is now played in every state of Australia and is ever increasing in popularity. Touch is a fast paced, thrilling sport that allows people of all ages to get involved with a rugby league style game without the major contact required in normal Rugby. Coaches for both league and union utilize many variations of touch at training as it can be used to improve skills while also having contact removed to avoid the possibility of injury. The overall aim in a game of Touch Football is for your team to score more touchdowns than your opponents. This is achieved by placing the ball in your opponents `Touchdown Zone. Touchdowns can be scored in a multiple amount of ways like rucking, wrapping and switching the ball to create space to score.
Authors, Sanneh and Heinrich describe in “Why We Run” and “What Could Be Better Than a Touchdown”, that mental agility is just as important as physical prowess in sports. They use many examples with how football and running needs both of these elements to perform their best while the sports they do.
Physical and mental strength plays a major role in a football player’s life. Football is a twelve month process, which consists of off- season (six months), in -season (five months), and the Transition (one month). During off-season the football player’s main goal is gaining strength, size, and much power, in-season they continue to practice and work on maintaining the gains in strength during the off-season, and the transition is when they rest and recuperate their body from the physical exercise. Football players are constantly bumped and knocked down during practices
Soccer is a sport that’s very challenging and during the course of this semester I’ve found physics can also be described as challenging. As far as I was concerned soccer and physics were both challenging and that was all they had in common, consequently upon researching them both this semester I found that I was wrong. For me this was nothing new because I’ve found that physics isn’t a subject that can be skimmed, but rather it has to be studied to the finest detail. Those small details if missed can make all your efforts worthless. Or on the positive side understanding those details can make your efforts worth it in the end. And in soccer if you understand the physics, which to most players
1. Soccer is one of the most demanding of all sports. The game is played on one of the largest fields of any sport, for the longest sustained time and with the least amount of breaks. Players in a soccer team are in continuous activity as they compete for loose balls, move to encourage teammates, rotate positions and run to make a space or test opponents. Running, jumping, sprinting movements in relation with sudden changes of acceleration and route outweigh the play. The power of the game ranges between low-level activities such as walking or jogging to ones of high intensity such as sprinting . This is what is known as intermittent exercise. The rhythm of soccer is dynamic and constantly changing, which is a characteristic that divides it from other endurance sports , this suggests that in order for a midfielder to successfully endure for the entire 90 minutes all three energy systems assist in different stages although the ATP/PC system is dominant.
There is no question that everything people do in their lives involves physics. This is true from the way we communicate to the way that we fight wars. In some cases the influence of the laws of physics on our world are extremely apparent, such as in sports. Basketball, hockey, baseball and even cricket involve physics. From the most basic motions players perform in the game, to different plays designed by coaches, physics touches it all. These appearances of physics in the games that we play are sometimes so subtle we don’t even notice them. In other cases however, the impact of physics can be heard across the stadium as Jerome “The Bus” Bettis barrels his way into the endzone. The influences of physics on
