    1.2.1 Lesson 1 - somatotypes 1.2.1 Lesson 1 - somatotypes Presentation Transcript

    • GCSE PE Different body types
    • Learning Objectives
      • By the end of this lesson you should be able to:
      • Name the 3 different body types and explain what they are
      • Understand how to position yourself and other sports performers on the somatotype scale
      • Explain the factors that affect your optimum weight
    • Somatotypes
      • What does it mean?
      • Bodies come in all shapes and sizes but can be grouped into 3 basic types.
      • Endomorph
      • Mesomorph
      • Ectomorph
    • Somatotypes
      • Task:
      • In a group of 3 you will be assigned a somatotype.
      • On a piece of A4 paper your need to summarise it in 10 words or less that you will need to explain to other groups.
      • You will have 4 minutes to do this.
      • Once completed one of your group will erect a market stand and invite punters from other groups to your stand to find out the relevant information.
      • The remaining 2 will go out and find out about the other 2 somatotypes before returning to summarise to the rest of the group.
    • Endomorph A lot of body fat A lot of fat on the upper arms and thighs Wide hips and narrow shoulders Fairly slim wrists and ankles
    • Mesomorph Very little body fat A muscular body Broad shoulders and narrow hips A large head Strong forearms and thighs
    • Ectomorph Very little muscle or body fat Narrow hips and shoulders Thin legs and arms A narrow chest and abdomen Thin face and high forehead
    • Measuring Somatotypes A score out of 7 will then be given in the following categories:
      • Fatness – ENDOMORPH
      • Muscularity – MESOMORPH
      • Linearity (thinness) – ECTOMORPH
      So a person’s somatotype might be 2: 6 :2. For example, 2/7 for fat, 6/7 for muscle and 2/7 for thinness.
    • Measuring Somatotypes
      • Task 1
      • With a partner determine your somatotype
    • Which somatotype?
    • Somatotypes in Sport Certain somatotypes tend to be found in certain sports. The ideal somatotype for a performer will depend on their sport or event. In some cases, the position that they play in a particular sport might also be important. Consider, for example, the various body sizes and shapes in a rugby team.
    • Somatotype charts
    • Somatotypes in Sport
      • Task 2
      • Jot down the positions from the previous slide in your booklet.
      • Task 3
      • Complete task 3 on the same diagram and label clearly.
    • Optimum Weight
      • What is it?
      • Most favourable weight for your lifestyle / sport
      • What factors affect it?
      • Height
      • Gender
      • Bone Structure
      • Muscle Girth
      • Genetics
    • Learning Objectives
      • By the end of this lesson you should be able to:
      • Name the 3 different body types and explain what they are
      • Understand how to position yourself and other sports performers on the somatotype scale
      • Explain the factors that affect your optimum weight
    • Homework
      • Complete the following homework tasks in your booklet:
      • HWK’s 1 – 5
      • Also complete any other notes left blank in the booklet
      • They will be marked with this picture:
