factors_that_affect_performance.gif

Core 2 examines the factors that affect performance. In this module, students explore the physical and psychological bases of performance. They experienceand critically analyse approaches to training and skill develop ment and investigatethe contributions of psychology, nutrition and recoverystrategies to performance. This module enable students to take action to influence their own performanceand enhance that of others through coaching applications.





...Content Covered...
HOW DOES TRAINING AFFECT PERFORMANCE?
  • Energy Systems (alactacid - ATP/PC, lactic acid, aerobic)
  • Types of training and training methods - aerobic (continuous, fartlek, aerobic interval, circuit), anaerobic (anaerobic interval), flexibility (static, ballistic, PNF, dynamic), strength training (free/fixed weights, elastic, hydraulic)
  • Principles of training (progressive overload, specificity, reversibility, variety, training thresholds, warm-up and cool-down)
  • Physiological adaptions in response to training (resting HR, stroke volume, cardiac output, oxygen uptake and lung capacity, haemoglobin level, muscle hypertrophy, fast/slow twitch muscle fibres)

HOW CAN PSYCHOLOGY AFFECT PERFORMANCE?arousal.gif
  • Motivation (positive/negative, intrinsic/extrinsic)
  • Anxiety and arousal (trait/state, sources of stress, optimum arousal)
  • Psychological strategies to enhance motivation and manage anxiety (focusing skills, mental rehearsal/visualisation/imagery, relaxation techniques and goal-setting)

HOW CAN NUTRITION AND RECOVERY STRATEGIES AFFECT PERFORMANCE?
  • Nutritional considerations (pre-performance, during and post-performance)
  • Supplementation (vitamins/minerals, protein, caffeine, creatine products)
  • Recovery strategies (physiological stragies, neural strategies, tissue damage strategies and psychological strategies)

HOW DOES THE ACQUISITION OF SKILL AFFECT PERFORMANCE?
  • Stages of skill acquisition (cognitive, associative, autonomous)
  • Characteristics of the learner (personality, heredity, confidence, prior experience, ability)
  • Learning environment - Nature of skill (open, closed, gross, fine, discrete, serial, continuous, self-paced, externally paced), performance elements (decision-making strategic/tactical development), practice method (massed, distributed, whole, part), feedback (internal, external, concurrent, delayed, knowledge of results, knowledge of performance)
  • assessment of skill and performance (charachteristics, objective/subjective performance measures, validity/reliability of tests, personal versus prescribed judging criteria)
