circuit training
series of training of exercises completed one after the other for a set amount of time
Circuit method
made up of station (30-60 seconds). Exercises are mixed so muscle groups working are alternated
Circuit advantages
improves Cardiovascular fitness,used to develop skill and can be changed for individual needs
who uses circuit training?

Intensity changed by altering speed, times and distance covered. Lower intensities provide recovery time. Intensity is also varied by changing terrain
who uses fartlek training?
games players - they have to work at different intensities in games
Fartlek advantages

fartlek disadvantages
cannot tell if a performer is working at their full potential
interval training
periods of exercise followed by periods of rest
interval method
rest periods can be walking or stopping. The rest period can be based on time and distance. Short interval training improves anaerobic respiration and long interval training improves aerobic respiration
who uses interval training?
short interval - 100m sprinter and long interval 1500m sprinter
interval advantages
improves aerobic and anaerobic respiration and can include skills e.g layups
interval disadvantages
cannot tell if a performer is working at their best
continuous training
aerobic exercise with no rest periods
continuous method
work at 60-80% of MHR for a minimum of 20 minutes - improves cardiovascular fitness

can become boring
weight training
training with weight to improve muscular strength and endurance
