  • Fitness Components
    • Speed
      • The time it takes to move all body part or a body part as quickly as possible.
        • we use this in all sports in some way or another in rugby its the speed you run on to the ball the speed you tackle someone at depends how hard you hit them. The speed of a punch in boxing, how fast you react and dodge the  punch. The movement of your arm when you throw a ball in cricket depends the further the ball travels
        • We can improve are speed by doing different types of training, short intense training, fartlic training (speed play) and interval training.
    • strength
      • The amount of force a muscle can exert against a resistance.
        • This is trained by weight lifting or powerlifting and to get stronger you need to push yourself to lift more weight all the time and train every different muscle to do so this will also allow you to put on more mass because you are building muscle, there lifting heavy weight low reps witch will in turn use slow twitch muscle fibbers witch is what strength trainers use and tends to be less intense exercise where as fast twitch muscle fibbers are what create muscle tone and are high intense workouts and burn more fat
        • We use strength all the time when tackling opponents in most sports, we can use it to push  a scrum in rugby, use it to pull the bow back in archery and jump off the ground in high jump.
    • suppleness
      • The range of move that is possible at a particular joint in motion or static
        • We can train this by doing all different types of stretches such as static stretches active stretches passive stresses and PNF stretches
        • we can use suppleness when we reach for a ball in tennis, trying to intercept a pass in hockey, stretching for a tackle in rugby, and in football a goal keeper stretching for the ball to save it.
    • stamina
      • A physical or moral strength to withstand illness, hardship or tiredness (endurance).
        • You use stamina in pretty much everything you do, if something that is hard you use stamina to push yourself to carry on. In Rugby you can use stamina to carry on when your hurt or carry on running the length of the pitch to score a try, you use it when walking, running, and cycling more long distances
        • To improve your stamina you have to push your body past its limit this is called an overload this way you will get fitter, your diet has to be good to get over illness as your immune system needs to be strong, you can also do for long distance cardio to improve your heart rate and cardiovascular system. (circulation system) low intense cardio such as walking can also be affective, and can burn fat.
    • power
      • The ablity to perform and act effective, stregth or force being exterted/ caple of beingg exterted
        • We can improve are power by doing explosive exercises in order to maximise are speed and strength in a game, we can do core and leg exercises, as well as polymeric training this is the most popular power exercise traning there is, it increases stretch load on the working muscle and enables the "stretch contractor cycle" to occur quicker using more force
        • you use power in all sport in boxing its the muscles that contract then relax the force and speed of the punch determines the power, in tennis you use power in the shot you play, in the 100m you have to explode off the start.
