Specificity Progressive overload Frequency Intensity Duration Variety Training principles are essential to developing a successful training program and should include the principles of
Specificity Main training principle that guides the development of a training program Can be summarised as ‘you get what you train for’ This means that to be specific for any sport the pre-season training program must include the specific fitness components required for that sport in relation to a player’s position Specific training methods then need to be chosen that will develop specific fitness needs This means that training must be specific to the demands of a sport and should mimic the sport
TRAINING METHODS (Chapt 32, pg 326) Continuous training Aerobic floor classes Interval trainingResistance trainingCircuit trainingFlexibility training
Does the St Michael’s pre- season program uses various types of training methods specific to the game of Touch?
Study the pre- season program and comment on which training methods are present.
Continuous training to maintain aerobic fitness Flexibility to improve muscle & joint flexibility
Interval training involves work intervals followed by rest intervals designed to improve speed, power, agility and anaerobic capacity Short interval training specifically develops the phosphate energy system is essential for performance in sports such as Touch.
Resistance training will develop the fitness components of muscular strength, power and endurance Circuit training combines continuous and resistance training develops anaerobic capacity, strength, local endurance and agility
