2 The most important Methods of Training for physical fitness are - Continuous TrainingFartlek TrainingInterval Fitness TrainingCircuit TrainingFlexibility trainingWeight Training
3 Continuous Training Includes (P68 course notes) any continuous exercise (running, cycling, swimming) that ensures the heart rate is within your training zone for approximately 20 – 30 minutes for 3 to 5 sessions per week.
4 Continuous Training Benefits (P68 course notes) Develops Cardiovascular EnduranceDevelops Aerobic capacityStraightforward to planProgressive overload achieved- by exercising more often (increase frequency)- by exercising faster (increase intensity)- by exercising longer (increase duration)
5 Fartlek Training Includes (P68 course notes) Continuous running or swimming with short sprint bursts followed by a slower recovery then more continuous running or swimming.Run – Sprint – Walk – Jog continuously and repeated.
6 Fartlek Training Benefits (P68 course notes) Develops aerobic fitness (by continuous running) linked to training zone requirements.Develops anaerobic fitness (by short, speed endurance sprints).Can be varied to suit requirementsCan be adapted to suit terrain(using short hills for speed endurance sprints during a longer aerobic run)
7 Fartlek Training Ctd (P68 course notes) Progressive overload achieved - by exercising more often (increase frequency)- by exercising faster (increase intensity)- by exercising longer (increase duration)
8 Interval Fitness Training Includes (P69 course notes)Any form of exercise that allows a work / rest ratio interval to be calculated.Sprint (100%) 8 x 50m with 100m walk (recovery) in between each sprint.
