What is the aim of my fitness program? The aim of my fitness program is to improve my performance of a sport; the sport I have chosen to do it for is Basketball. To improve I need to think about my weaknesses during basketball. I get very tired and find it difficult to play a full game of basketball, so as the game increases I make more errors like dribbling, shooting and doing a lay up, this could mean that I give away fouls and in some cases my team could lose the match.
I need to concentrate, on muscular endurance and cardiovascular endurance; this will help me to allow my muscle groups to last longer without slowing down, (to keep going for a whole game). This will help me to improve on my weaknesses, for example, I can dribble, and jump better this will also help me when making mistakes, I wont make as many as I usually do. Whilst I plan my fitness program I need to think about SAFETY, the main safety precaution would be with the weights, three main points would be: Concentrate when lifting, Lift and release slow.
Breathe out when lifting, breathe in when releasing These points will help me when using them, also there will be fewer injuries. I will be doing my programme once every week for six weeks, to start with I am going to start of easily and gradually get harder (progression and overload) to reach my target heart rate. To make my programme interesting I will vary the activities in the programme and not just working on the same part of my body over and over again. To measure intensity I will gradually increase the level of difficulty of which I will do my exercises.
