1

what are the five principles of training?

SPORT
- specificity
- progression
- overload
- reversibility
- tedium

2

what is specificity?

training must focus on specific types of activity to improve:
- the type of fitness needed
- particular muscle groups
training may need to be adapted for the individual

3

what is progression?

happens when the body adapts to the training and moves to a new level of fitness. Progress is achieved through an increase in intensity leading to overload.
- most progression is made early on
- at higher fitness levels, there is less progress
- a plateau may occur when higher levels of fitness are hard to reach

4

what is overload?

occurs when level of training is raised to a level higher than normal. Your body adapts to these extreme demands.

5

what is reversibility?

training effects are reversible. If training intensity is reduced or stopped, there can be deterioration of speed, strength and agility. Muscle 'atrophy' (loss of muscle tone) may occur.

6

what is tedium?

tedium is boredom. Signs of boredom are an important indicator that training needs to be more interesting and useful.

7

what are the four principles of overload?

FITT
- frequency
- intensity
- time
- type

8

what is overtraining?

excessive exercise that gives the body more work or stress than it can handle

9

what are the dangers of overtraining?

- overuse injury (results from repeating the same exercise or activity (eg. tennis elbow))
- fatigue

10

what are the 6 different types of training method?

- continuous training
- weight training
- fartlek training
- plyometric training
- circuit training
- high-intensity interval training

11

what is continuous training?

- consists of continuos activities
- no rest intervals
- can be performed at low, moderate or high intensities
- max heart rate between 60 and 80%
- e.g. running, swimming, cycling, rowing

12

what is the main aim of continuous training?

cardiovascular fitness

13

what are the advantages of continuous training?

- does not require much equipment if any
- good for aerobic exercise
- burns fat

14

what are the disadvantages of continuous training?

- no anaerobic fitness
- requires motivation

15

what is weight training?

- involves using free weights, kettle bells, resistance weights
- repetitions are the number of times the weights are lifted
- sets are the number of times a weight activity is carried out

16

what are the main aims of weight training?

- muscular endurance
- power
- speed
- strength

17

what are the advantages of weight training?

- improves muscular strength
- easy to show progression
- muscle size and power increased

18

what are the disadvantages of weight training?

- can be expensive (gym fees, equipment cost)
- prone to injuries
- specialist equipment may be needed

19

what is fartlek training?

- involves fast and slow activity over a variety of terrain or hills (running, cycling etc.)
- uses the borg scale for intensity

20

what are the main aims of fartlek training?

- aerobic endurance
- anaerobic fitness

21

what are the advantages of fartlek training?

- easily adapted for different sports and fitness levels
- good for sports that have a change of pace

22

what are the disadvantages of fartlek training?

- difficult to monitor effort
- easy to avoid challenging parts

23

what is plyometric training?

- eccentric muscle movement
- exercises which exert maximum force in short intervals of time
- e.g. squat jumps, box jumps

24

what are the main aims of plyometric training?

- power
- explosive strength

25

what are the advantages of plyometric training?

- over a time a greater force is created when muscle contracts
- provides more energy
- provides fast powerful movement

26

what are the disadvantages of plyometric training?

- high amount of stress on specific muscles
- no benefit to aerobic fitness

27

what is circuit training?

- complete exercises for different muscle groups at different stations
- exercise over time or repetition
- the muscle groups should be on alternate stations
- useful for sports teams

28

what are the main aims of circuit training?

- anaerobic fitness
- strength
- muscular endurance
- cardiovascular endurance
- speed

29

what are the advantages of circuit training?

- varied, so doesn't get boring
- easily adapted
- can include skill stations
- doesn't need lots of room or equipment

30

what are the disadvantages of circuit training?

- requires time to set up
