Anaerobic training focuses on the anaerobic energy systems (lactic acid and alactacid) and obtaining physiological adaptations that benefit these systems. However, you should note that here in Improving Performance the focus is not on improving lactate thresholds or durations of anaerobic activity, but on speed and power. You should have also covered anaerobic training in Factors Affecting Performance, How does training affect performance?, types of training and training methods, anaerobic

The use of technology is sport has increased dramatically over the last twenty (20) years. At the elite level training facilities now routinely include: gyms, biomechanic technology, physiological testing, in-door and outdoor facilities and plenty of training equipment. There have been massive advances in the technology of equipment as well.

Nike scientists unlock athlete insights in the lab to help designers create advanced footwear, apparel and equipment for athletes everywhere.

The critical question: What ethical issues are related to improving performance? focuses on the use of drugs and technology in sport. While you are required to have a general understanding of the drugs and technology, it is very important to remember that the critical question is What ethical issues are related to improving performance?, which means the focus should always be on ETHICS.

Aerobic training is training that focuses on developing the cardiovascular and aerobic energy system. Once again much of this content has already been covered in Factors Affecting Performance when you looked at How does training affect performance? under types of training and training methods aerobic training. However, again we have a change from a dash to a dot point requiring you to have a deeper knowledge of this type of training and the various methods within it.

When planning a training year it is important to use periodisation in order to structure the year well and ensure the athlete peaks in performance at the right time. Periodisation is the process of breaking the year down into smaller time periods in order to structure the training program effectively.

Muay Thai technical & tactical training should be planned (periodised) too. General to specific as the fight approaches.

The critical question: What are the planning considerations for improving performance? has four dot points with plenty of content. Planning considerations includes more than just how to organise a training program. It looks at the sport and its method of competition, periodisation, training programs, training sessions, and even includes how to avoid overtraining.

Skill training is new content not addressed at all in Factors Affecting Performance. However, practice methods, feedback, and performance elements are all important background knowledge (you may also want to check out design a suitable plan for teaching beginners to acquire a skill through to mastery). This training method focuses on the development of skills specific to the athlete's sport.

The performance effects and harms associated with drug use are drug specific and content heavy. It is specifically because of this that the HSC PDHPE syllabus has a teacher note to reduce the content and focus on ethics. Students need only a general understanding of the performance-related effects of, and the harm associated with, using drugs.

Performance Effects and Harms Associated with Drug Use

Possibly the best of the useful sites for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance resource online for FAP and IP is the Strength and Conditioning Research website. This website contains a mountain of information on the various types of training, periodisation, nutrition and more. The easiest way to find something is to search for it and look through what comes up. All this information is current research and very useful for looking at training and performance.

There are many elements to be considered when designing a training session. The first consideration is always safety. This considers the safety of the equipment, facilities and training being designed to meet the levels of the athlete/s.

The initial planning considerations for improving performance focus on the specific sport of the athlete/s. The sport is broken down in order to identify specific components of fitness that are more fundamental to the particular sport. These components of fitness then become the focus for planning training programs as they must be developed in both the individual and the team. Some sports have different positions, with different fitness requirements, thus a focus on the individual is also

Flexibility training aims to improve the range of motion/movement of joints. Flexibility is always joint specific and whole body programs are needed in order to improve an athlete’s whole body flexibility. There are many different types of flexibility training some of which were covered in Factors Affecting Performance, How does training affect performance?, types of training and training methods, flexibility training. For some reason Improving Performance does not list PNF stretching…

The next useful site for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance is National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). This is the American version of ASCA, and has much more free content for HSC PDHPE. They have videos that can be accessed and plenty of free articles that cover content under FAP and IP, such as “The central concepts related to periodisation“. Both the videos and articles are found under the education tab.

There are plenty of useful sites for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance that I use all the time. The first of our useful sites for Factors Affecting and

The use of drugs is sport is always a hot topic around the globe. There are many people who were considered possibly the greatest athletes of all time, who, due to the use of drugs, have now shamed the sport and their name (e.g. Lance Armstrong). For HSC PDHPE use of drugs needs to be considered from an ethical perspective, not just a performance enhancing view point.

Use of Drugs

The timing of the elements is also important to consider. How long will the athlete/s spend warming up, doing conditioning work, or focusing on a skill? What order will these be done in order to gain the most from the training session? these and many more questions need to be considered int he designing of a training session.
