Components of Physical Fitness for javelin The components of physical fitness relevant in throwing the javelin are listed below, with the definitions and applications. Absolute Strength “The maximum force that can be exerted once, regardless of body weight or size.” This component of fitness is required when throwing the javelin, when throwing the javelin with the greatest force that can be exerted. Explosive Strength “The ability to exert a maximal force quickly or in one action.” This component of fitness is required when throwing the javelin. The action is perform when the throwing arm is pulled back and the quickly brought forward to release, the force and speed keep the javelin in the air for longer period of time. Elastic Strength “The ability to exert a force quickly and is calculated as strength multiplied by speed.” This is similar to power. This component of fitness is applied when throwing the javelin. Flexibility “The range of movement available at a joint. It is determined by two factors: joint structure and muscle elasticity.” This component of fitness is required in javelin when you release the javelin and your body and the throwing arm is pulled backward to get the strength and power for the throw. Dynamic strength “The ability to exert significant muscular force repeatedly.” This component of fitness is not required for javelin, as none of the muscles work continuously in the process of the event. Components of Skill Fitness The components of skill fitness relevant in throwing the javelin are listed below, with the definitions and applications. Co-ordination “The ability of the body to link movements together, either with other movements or in relation to an external object such as an opponent or a ... ... middle of paper ... ... training. Progressive Overload “The need to increase training demands upon the body in order to encourage it to adapt further.” As I train for weeks after weeks and increasing the intensity and frequency, my body will start to adapt to the continued exposure as a result. Therefore, I will be able to perform at my best in the real event. Regression/Reversibility “Improved ranges of movement can be achieved and maintained by regular use of mobility exercises. If an athlete ceases mobility training, their ranges of movement will decline over time to those maintained by their other physical activities.” Variance “Varying your training will avoid the monotony and potential boredom of performing the same routine over and over again, this will also help to avoid training.” Overtraining “Allowing full recovery from the previous training before any more takes place.”
