A2 - Long Term Technical Prep

  1. 1. A2 Physical Education Long Term Technical Preparation Technical Ergogenic Aids
  2. 2. Unit Learning Objectives: To understand the mechanical aspects of long-term preparation To be able to discuss refinement of technique, the perfect model, and use of feedback for example through video and computer software To know about ergogenic aids, including pedometry, heart rate monitoring and the use of GPS technology
  3. 3. Lesson Objectives  To develop an understanding of ergogenic aids, including:  Force Plates  Pedometry  Heart rate monitoring  The use of GPS technology  To be able to calculate the basal metabolic rate and calorific expenditure
  4. 4. Force Plates Watch the video and make relevant notes on the use of Force Plate technology. Apply it! How would this benefit you in your sport? Harley – This might interest you!
  5. 5. Pedometry A device that calculates the distance you have walked or run It senses your movement and counts the amount of steps you take Why might this be useful?
  6. 6. Apply It! You firstly need to work out your Basal Metabolic Rate E.G. Wrighty’s BMR is BMR = 1 X Weight (KG) X 24 hrs Wrighty’s BMR = 1 X 95 X 24 BMR = 2280
  7. 7. Now calculate my calorific expenditure: I went for a 1KM swim this morning at 6am. Level of Intensity Type of Activity Activity factor (x BMR) Very Light Seated /standing activities Men = 1.3 Women = 1.3 Light Walking 2.5 – 3mph Men = 1.6 Women = 1.5 Moderate Walking 3.5 – 4mph Men = 1.7 Women = 1.6 Heavy Jogging Men = 2.1 Women 1.9 Exceptional Athletic training Men = 2.4 Women = 2.2 BMR x Activity Factor = Calorific Expenditure
  8. 8. Now apply it at home! Using the information in the presentation and the Pedometer, calculate your own calorific intake. Firstly you will need to work out your average speed (distance x time) So you will need to measure the following: your stride length How many steps you take (pedometer) How long you are working for
  9. 9. NIKE + An advanced form of pedometry
  10. 10. Heart Rate Monitors What do we know? Accessible to most athletes Popular method of measuring exercise intensity Sensors worn on the chest sending data to a wrist watch to display working heart rate
  11. 11. Remember how to work out your maximum HR? Remember how to use this to work out training zones?
  12. 12. Heart rate monitors allow athletes to predetermine what training zones they should be working in They can also give a good indication of fitness levels and recovery Heart Rate Task
  13. 13. GPS Technology  Global positioning system  A navigation system that tracks your location and can measure distance travelled, average and maximum speeds, stride length and pulse rate  What sports would this be useful in?
  14. 14. Exam Question: Identify examples of the types of technology used by elite athletes in order to monitor their intensity. Select one example, and highlight any advantages or potential disadvantages for the athlete as a result of this type of technology
