List and define health-related components of physical fitness

Cardiorespiratory endurance

- Circulatory and respiratory system to supply O2 during sustained PA

Body Composition

- Relative amounts of fat, bone and other vital parts in the body

Muscular Strength

- Ability of muscle to exert force

Muscular Endurance

- Ability of muscle to continue to perform without fatigue


- Range of motion available at a joint

List and define skill-related components of physical fitness


- Ability to change position of the body in a space and with speed and accuracy


- Ability to use the senses, such as sight and hearing, together with body parts in performing tasks smoothy + accurately


- Maintenance of equilibrium while stationary or moving


- Ability or rate at which one can perform work

Reaction Time

- Time elapsed between stimulation and the beginning of the reaction to it


- Ability to perform a movement within a short period of time

Show the four stages of the super-compensation cycle

Stage 1 - Fatigue (drop well below neutral)

Stage 2 - Compensation (rising to neutral)

Stage 3 - Super-compensation (rise above neutral and start dropping)

Stage 4 - Involution (drop back to neutral)

Describe the concept of training loads

Workload monitory is the process of measuring internal (physiological, biomechanical and perceptual strain) and external (mechanical loading) training loads so to optimise the prescription of training stimulus. Maximising performance and reducing risk of injury.

Provide examples of internal training loads

- Biochemical - Creatine Kinase markers, muscle damage & hormonal

- Physiological - HR, VO2max & HRR, HRV

- Psychological - Depression & perceptual state

Provide examples of external training loads

Mechanical work - Distance & speed, acceleration, impacts, force, jump height & power output

What's the equivalent of 1MET

3.5ml/kg/min (VO2)

Whats the equivalent of 1L of O2 (L/min)


What is the equation for work rate?

Work rate = resistance (kg) * distance (m) * rev/min

Whats the equation for Watts?

Watts = Work Rate / 6.12
