Continuous training
Fartlek training
Interval training
Circuit training

2

What are the advantages of continuous training?

•No equipment needed
•Easy to organise and carry out
•Training can be sport specific
•Good for building aerobic endurance

3

What are the disadvantages of continuous training?

•Long distance can be boring
•Risk of injury on hard surface
•Only develops aerobic endurance not anaerobic endurance

4

What are the advantages of fartlek training?

•Can be made sport specific
•Easy to organise and carry out
•Performer can control the intensity of training
•Adds variety to training

5

What are the disadvantages of fartlek training?

•Need to monitor training intensity to make sure performer keeps up intensity
•Performer needs good self discipline to keep up intensity and to stick to the rest periods

6

•You can mix aerobic and anaerobic endurance
•It's easy to see when the athlete isn't trying

7

What are the disadvantages of interval training?

•Can become boring
•Difficult to keep going for long periods
•Requires a certain level of fitness to work at a high level of intensity

8

•Aerobic endurance

10

What are the components of fitness that interval training links to?

Aerobic endurance
Anaerobic endurance

11

What are the components of training that fartlek training links to?

•Aerobic endurance
•Speed

12

How can the FITT principles be applied to continuous training?

F - run more times over a week
I - run faster
Ti - run longer
Ty - run, walk, cycle, swim

12

How can the FITT principles be applied to fartlek training?

F - how many laps you do
I - work harder by doing more sprints
Ti - more laps for each time you do it
Ty - change fartlek grid by changing distance and gradient your on

13

How can the FITT principles be applied to interval training?

F - gradually increase time
I - work harder by doing more sprints
Ti - how long you run for
Ty - change type of training e.g. swimming and cycling

14

What are the advantages of circuit training?

Develops strength and endurance
Appropriate form of training for most sports
Can be adjusted to suit age, fitness and health of an athlete
Exercises are simple enough to make each athlete feel a sense of achievement in completing them
A wide range of exercises to select from which will maintain an athlete's enthusiasm

15

What are the disadvantages of circuit training?

Many exercises require specialised equipment
Ample space required to set up the circuit exercises and equipment
In general can only be conducted where appropriate facilities and equipment are available
Use of additional equipment requires appropriate health and safety monitoring

16

What components of fitness links to circuit training?

Any components of fitness that are needed to improve upon

17

How can the FITT principles be applied to circuit training?

F - how much of each exercise you do
I - work harder
Ti - how long you do each exercise for
Ty - change circuits for different components of fitness that need improved upon
