A Report Outlining the Biological Bases of Training and Exercise in Athletics
1.1Purpose- The purpose of this report is to investigate the biological bases of training and exercise relating to the participation and performance in athletics, specifically 1500m.
1.2Audience- this report was commissioned by the Health and Physical Education Department of Canterbury College for the benefit of, the general public who may be interested in increasing their knowledge with regard to training, in particular athletics.
1.3Significance- this report shows the different training methods used in order to obtain your maximum endurance and optimum fitness.
1.4Parameters- this report is confined to a discussion of the energy systems and training programs as they relate to the athletics event of the 1500 metres.
1.5Methodology- the Internet and textbooks were used to obtain relevant information to complete this report.
1.6Limitations- Research books found, obtained invalid statistics for this report. Many of the resources contained past statistics, so recent information was obtained from the Internet, to overcome this problem.
2.1 The 3-energy systems- (see appendix A)
When a person needs energy, the body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose, a high-energy sugar. This is further reduced to Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the body's most important energy source. (Tinely,1994)
2.1.1 Anaerobic system-
This form of energy is the body's immediate energy source.
