Disadvantages
Inaccurate if you do not follow exact protocol
Measures only flexibility in Hamstrings and lower back
Does not account for leg & arm length
Warm up can effect results
Requires Sit & Reach Box
Cardiovascular Endurance
CARDIOVASCULAR ENDURANCE
DEFINITION:

The ability of the cardio-respiratory system to work efficiently, supplying nutrients & oxygen to working muscles during sustained exercise.
Multi-stage Fitness Test
What is VO2 Max? How do I work it out?
Advantage
Cheap
Mass Participation
Valid -Universal
Inside / Outside
Not much equipment needed
Measures up to maximum capacity
Disadvantage
Requires 100% effort
Can be time consuming
Require lots of motivation
Must be fully fit.
Must have a non slippy surface.
FORESTRY STEP TEST
How do we work out our VO2 Max?
Advantages
Valid test
Cheap
Not much equipment needed
Mass participation
Performed inside and out
Can be self-administer
Disadvantages
The elderly may struggle
You must be able to take your own pulse.
Requires bench, stop watches
DEFINITION:
The ability of the muscular system to work efficiently, where a muscle can continue contracting over a period of time against a light to moderate load.
1 Minute SIT UP TEST
1 Minute PRESS UP TEST
Advantages
Basic Equipment
Cheap
Mass Participation
Can be done anywhere
Quick
Disadvantages
Requires 100% effort
Elderly may struggle
Ensure Sit up & Press up technique is standardised.
Ensure the test starts immediately so the performer does not tire in the starting position.
Body Composition
DEFINITION:

The relative ratio of fat mass to fat-free mass in the body.
Body Mass Index (Weight/Height2 (kg/m2)
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)
Predicts Body fat by measuring resistance of the electrical impulse
Body fat restricts the flow of the electric current, so the more currant that is needed, the greater the percentage of body fat a person has.
Skin Fold Calipers
Measures......
Chest/Abdominal/Thigh
Tricep/Suprailliac/Thigh
Advantages
Relatively inexpensive
Is portable
Quick
Small Space required
Disadvantage
Specialist Equipment required
Human error can effect results
Some methods estimate
DEFINITION
:
Distance divided by the time taken. (M/S)
35m Sprint Test
I
s it safe to use?
Is it working properly?
Is it calibrated?
Is it recording data accurately?
Informed Consent
You must always gain informed consent
from the participants taking the test.

How might we gain proof off consent??

Why is it important we gain consent??
Choosing The Fitness Test
It is important to establish which component of fitness is most important to the performer

You should also consider the PRACTICALITY of the test (is it relevant to your sport??)

Also you need to consider the ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES of each test!


Carrying Out The Fitness Test
You must know the METHOD for completing each test

You must have access to the relevant EQUIPMENT

You must ACCURATELY record the RESULTS

You must COMPARE results to NORMATIVE data

You must identify STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES
Reliability & Validity of Tests
IS THE TEST RELIABLE??
Reliability:

The degree to which repeated measurements give the same results.
Is the test conducted properly?
Has the person suffered an injury since they last took the test?
Is the equipment damaged?
Is the same amount of effort being used?

Validity:
The degree to which the assessment method measures what it intends to measure (Honesty of the test)
35M Sprint test - measures speed but also reaction time???


EQUIPMENT
- Sit & Reach Box
- Ruler
METHOD
-
Sit with your legs straight
-
Place the measuring tape, with 0cm level with your feet.
- Make sure your legs are locked straight
-
With your arms stretched towards your feet, lean forward and reach as far as possible with your fingertips.
-
Hold your furthest stretch for 2 seconds without any jerky movements
-
You should repeat 3 times and measure on the 4th attempt.
-
The distance that your fingers touch on the sit and reach table will be your score. If you don't make it to your toes then you will get a negative score.

EQUIPMENT
- Multistage fitness test CD
- CD Player
- Cones
- 20m marked area
METHOD
-
The test involves continuous running between 2 lines 20m apart, between recorded bleeps. The time between the bleeps decreases each level.
-
You must ensure that you have a foot on or beyond the 20m marker at the end of each shuttle run
-
If you reach the marker before the next bleep, you should wait there until you hear it before resuming running.If you do not reach the end of the shuttle run before the bleep sounds then you are given 2 or 3 more attempts to catch up with the pace before being disqualified.

VO2 Max is a measurement of aerobic endurance.
It describes the maximum amount of O2 that the
body can use in 1 min per Kg of body weight.
It is measured in Millilitres per Kilogram per Minute or ml/kg/min.

Fitter people have a higher VO2 Max and can therefore exercise more intensely than people who aren't as fit.

There is a layer of fat beneath the skin, which is called subcutaneous fat, and the percentage of total body fat can be estimated by taking a measure of the skin fold at selected points on the body.
METHOD
Measurements should be taken on the right side of the body.
Mark the mid point of each skinfold site with a pen
Grasp the skinfold 1 cm away from the mid point firmly between your thumb and index finger and pull away from the body.
maintaining the grip place calipers on mid point.
Read the dial to the nearest 0.5mm
Repeat 2-3 times more
Add the results of all sites and use the nomogram to identify your % body fat.

Vertical Jump Test
EQUIPMENT
- Wall
- Measuring Tape
- Chalk
- Partner
- Weighing Scales
METHOD
-
Stand side-on to a wall and reach up with the hand closest to the wall. Keeping your feet flat on the ground, the point of the fingertips is marked or recorded by a partner. This is called the standing reach.
-
Stand away from the wall and jump vertically as high as possible using your arms and your legs to help you project your body upwards. Touch the wall at the highest point of the jump and have this marked or recorded.
-
The difference in distance between the standing reach height and the jump height is the score. The best of 3 results is recorded on the Lewis nonogram on line' D'.
- Weigh yourself and record your weight (Km) on the nonogram on line 'Wt'.
-
Using a ruler join up the 2 plots. The line you have drawn will cross the power line 'P' on the nonogram.
- Record power in Kgm/s
ADVANTAGES
- Quick to perform
- Cheap

DISADVANTAGES
- Technique plays a big part in achieving a good score because the performer must mark the wall at the top of the jump
