Staying fit is an important aspect of life and since not everyone is the same, specific fitness plans should be created for an individual’s needs. A fitness plan should be based on the F. I. T formula and body composition. An individual’s fitness plan depends on one’s goals and body structure and capability. Some people can handle a harsher more strict fitness plan whereas some may not be capable and may chose a less difficult plan. The fitness plan should be created around a person’s ability to exercise and one should not go overboard at the risk of injury. My fitness scores were mostly average although I could have done much better.
Fitness scores help to determine whether a student or anyone for that matter is doing up to par with national standards. The fitness test also determines a person’s flexibly, muscle strength, speed, and endurance all of which should turn out average if one is to be considered healthy and fit. My worst fitness score was the mile in which it took over ten minutes to run it. Last year during terms one and two it only took me ten minutes. Last year during terms three and four it only took me nine minutes so in conclusion there was definitely a decrease in fitness from last year to this year.
It seems that last year I did better in everything even the leg reach. Last year I was closer to touching the wall. My fitness scores were not as good as I had wanted them to be. I would like to make fitness plan that will work best for me so that I can improve my fitness by improve my muscle strength and stamina. The better my fitness plan is, the greater improvement I will experience. My first goal in my fitness plan is to increase my strength by putting more effort into pys ed class and exercising as best as I am able.
My specific fitness plan will be used during the days in which I have phys ed class where I will train most of my major muscles such as my legs, arms, and abdominals. I will start with cardio by going on the treadmill for fifteen minutes. Cardio is the easiest and takes the least amount of work for me. While on the treadmill I will warm up by starting at small speeds around . 5- . 9. Warming up is important and one should not start off immediately at high speed because muscles are neither prepared or ready for excessive and sudden work. Doing so creates overload which is not good for muscles.
After cardio I will work my arms by using machines in the weight room that are specialized for arm strength gaining for about five minutes. After I have worked on my arms I will move on to my abdominals by using machines specific to abdomens fir five minutes which should finish my school fitness plan. At home I also plan to apply a separate fitness plan in which I will train my abdominals and legs. I will start off by stretching and then move on to cardio. I have a treadmill at home so I will go on it for 30 minute in which every five minutes I will increase the speed to what I think is appropriate for me.
I will exercise my abdomen by doing sit-ups. Sit-ups are easy to do at home and don’t take too much time. My fitness plans will hopefully help me to gain muscle strength and stamina. Body composition is the amount of fat a person’s body has. Optimal body composition tends to be those who are healthier and can move easier at a more efficiently. There are two types of mass in which body composition is broken down into, there’s fat free mass and there’s body fat. Fat free mass is the body’s non fat tissues which body fat is the amount of fat in one’s body. If someone is overweight then that means that they have excessive body fat.
Someone who is overweight would need to exercise more frequently with a more intense fitness plan than a person who was not overweight. Body composition does play a large part in making a fitness plan. Small very thin girls should not have an intense and harsh fitness plan as a large fit man should not have a light easy breezy fitness plan. Neither will help to improve body strength. The F. I. T will be not only incorporated in many others fitness plans but also mine. Frequency, intensity, and time all very much apply when making a fitness plan because without it one may not see any improvement.
The frequency matters because if one does not do enough repetitions then a person is probably doing lighter work than they should. Five to ten reps are best for the maximum amount of work. Intensity is important because people should lift an amount that matching with their body structure and weight limit. Time matters very much because not exercising long enough is not good enough. It is said that a half an hour of exercising daily is considered to be healthy whether it’s walking, jogging, or just taking out the dog.
Making a fitness plan will help those who want to improve their strength and fitness. It is easy to create a fitness plan according to your goals and limits of what you can and can’t do. Fitness plans are supposed to help individuals gain muscle strength, stamina, and endurance. Fitness plans can be created for home or school. Those who want to be healthy or stay healthy should create fitness plans in order to reach their individual goals for their body. Everyone is different so each individual should have their own custom plan.
