Coaching Portfolio Sport: Football Conditioning Essay, Research Paper
Conditioning: The conditioning program will focus on the two energy production systems, anaerobic and aerobic systems. The aerobic systems focuses more on long term conditioning. Such as jogging long distances, bicycling, swimming or dribbling a ball for long periods of time. The aerobic systems uses fats, carbohydrates, and proteins for its energy source. A good diet is essential to maintain a substantial amount of energy during athletic performances. The anaerobic system is used during high intensity activities such as; sprinting, lifting weights, and punches. Both of these systems are used during football. As coach, I want to develop both systems in my athletes so I will help prevent injury as well allow them to perform better during competition.
