Today when we talk about endurance testing there is a lot of different tests that come to mind, multistage shuttle run test (beep test), yo-yo tests, VO2 max the list goes on. These are tests that over many decades have been refined and improved to ensure repeatable and valid tests. Tests like the beep test are used to estimate an athlete’s aerobic fitness using a distance of 20 meters and markers on the ground. The yo-yo test although being very similar in the end result has shorter distances to travel. There are small differences in each test that make them unique, the fact that there is no turning in a VO2 max it might have different uses for different sports, i.e.
In order to maximize performance and minimize the risk of injury athletes complete warm-up activities before athletic competition. A common structure of the warm-up consists of aerobic exercise completed at less than maximum intensity, followed by periods of sport specific movements, and finishing with stretching, usually consisting of static stretching. This paper will review the research regarding static stretching and the negative affects in athletic performance and the lack of evidence demonstrating the ability of static stretching as a tool for injury prevention. The paper will discuss the research and benefits of dynamic stretching as an alternative to static stretching for warm-up activities and discuss the proper setting to incorporate
Lactate threshold is one of the critical determinants of better performance in endure-related activities especially sports and exercises. Therefore, the main objective of endurance training programs is to improve this parameter (Ziogas et al., 2011). The lactate level measurement is also used in the prescription of exercises and assessing effects of physical training and therapy (Ammann et al., 2014). Therefore, the practical applications of the lactate blood level concentration are in clinical physiology and sporting activities. References Ammann, B. C., Knols, R. H., Baschung, P., de Bie, R. A., & de Bruin, E. D. (2014).
The physical aspect and believe that ‘the faster one is better’ is a common idea in most sports, therefore, football is not an exception, but it is specific enough not to be discussed in a traditional way of planning and developing the skill of speed. The breakdown of football specific tasks is clearly showing very low numbers of explicit straight sprinting over 30 meters – short distance sprints with change of direction take the central and most important role. Furthermore, there is evidence that straight sprinting training has little to no influence on sprinting that involves changes of directions, in more detail: the bigger the angle of directional change the smaller is the influence on straight sprinting . These facts should be reason
Muscular Endurance: Muscular endurance training is where you continuously work the muscles using a lower weight and higher reps. Muscular endurance training helps prolong fatigue during activity this will help us in the later stages of the game when our legs may start to feel heavy or keep our muscles supplied with oxygen for longer so they don’t fatigue as quickly. Fartlek Training: Fartlek training is a form of cardiovascular training that requires you to run/cycle/row for a period of time at a high intensity then lower to a moderate intensity for a period of time then to a lower intensity again. Alternatively you can change the order of the intensity as there is no strict way to do Fartlek training. Fartlek training would benefit you because it replicates change of speed used in football, allows you to cope with lactic acid as well if training is consistent.
Endurance exercise refers to a type of exercise that consists of regular, repetitive, and constant movements that involve same large muscle groups with minimum of 10 minutes such as walking, bicycling, jogging, continuous swimming, water aerobics, and many more with the aim of improving cardiorespiratory fitness which can be achieved if the exercise is being performed regularly at adequate intensity and frequency (Sigal, Kenny, Wasserman, Casteneda-Sceppa, 2010). When performing this exercise, the body will undergoes some physiological changes which can benefits everyone and in this case, diabetic patients. In general, this exercise causes a change to a mixture of free fatty acids, glycogen stores and circulating glucose. The circulating glucose
The Beep Test The beep test is a tool used to determine one’s aerobic fitness levels. This test assesses a person’s VO2 capacity which is the maximum oxygen intake or aerobic capacity. The test is: running in between two point that are twenty meters apart. As the level of the test increase so does the speed in between each of the beeps. This is a good indicator of health as it can help determine a person’s fitness levels.
In my first article I decided to write about a soccer player’s ability to recover and kick a ball when he or she just finished intense running on the field of play. At the start of the article the writer points out that fatigue is a decrement in performance during continuous or intermittent exercise. The writer stated that a soccer player experiences fatigue or reduced performance at three different game conditions:
Examples of aerobic exercise include walking, jogging, running, cycling, swimming, dancing, playing soccer, basketball, and tennis, etc. Aerobic fitness is typically evaluated by the one-mile walking test, the PACER test, or a treadmill running test. The one-mile walking test is perhaps the easiest to perform. In this test, you must walk as fast as you can for the entire one mile. By walk, it means one foot must always be on the ground.
But in some cases can be done before and after, to ensure a proper warm-up and cool-down. A basic flexibility training technique is stretching, and it should be included in every exercise regime to maintain overall flexibility and help the muscles to recuperate. A suggested workout plan by Canada’s Physical Activity Guide to Healthy Active Living states that flexibility training should be done 4 to 7 days a week and should last at least 5 to 10 minutes. Stretching is one area of the workout that tends to get cut
