Aim and Objectives<br />To introduce and understand aerobic capacity and how the theory can be applied to improve sporting performance<br />By the end of today’s lesson you will be able to;<br /><ul><li>Define aerobic capacity (VO2)
Explain the factors that affect aerobic capacity
Describe the tests used to measure someone’s aerobic capacity
List the types of training used to improve aerobic capacity</li></li></ul><li>What is Aerobic capacity?<br />Definition:<br />The ability to provide and sustain energy aerobically<br />VO2 max:<br />The maximum amount of oxygen that can be taken in,<br />transported and consumed by the working muscles per minute<br />
What Affects our aerobic capacity?<br />Task (8 minutes)<br />Using the flipchart paper and pens discuss what factors you think will affect a person’s VO2 max<br /> age<br />Factors that affect VO2 max<br />Remember aerobic capacity is needed for all endurance based activities<br />
In addition lifestyle and diet influence VO2 maxe.g. smoking will have a negative effect</li></li></ul><li>Physiological make up + vo2 max<br />For optimum aerobic performance we need;<br /><ul><li>Slow twitch muscle fibres
Include the advantages and disadvantages of the test</li></li></ul><li>Training methods<br />To improve an athlete’s aerobic capacity;<br /><ul><li>Train smarter … select the right type of training
Improves both aerobic and anaerobic capacities
Consists of work periods followed by rest periods </li></li></ul><li>INTERVAL training<br />To plan an interval training session you mustchoose and stress the correct energy system;<br /><ul><li>Duration or distance of work interval
Duration of the rest period (and what you do!)</li></li></ul><li>TASK (5 minutes)<br />What are the advantages and disadvantages of these<br />three types of training?<br />Continuous …. Gary<br />Fartlek … Charlotte<br />Interval … Chris<br />
Continuous training<br />What are the advantages and disadvantages? <br /> <br />
FARTLEK TRAINING<br />What are the advantages and disadvantages? <br /> <br />
INTERVAL training<br />What are the advantages and disadvantages? <br /> <br />
Homework task for next week<br />You have been asked to improve an athlete’s aerobic capacity<br />Choose one VO2 max to test your athlete’s current aerobic capacity<br />Write out step by step instructions to enable you to complete the test<br />Design a training programme to improve your athlete’s VO2 max.Plan for 3 sessions a week for 6 weeks.Remember the training principles SPORT.<br />Set up the equipment needed and complete the test with your athlete.<br />Coach your athlete through session 1 of your 6 week training programme.<br />
