Transcript of Fitness Testing - Lab & Field Tests

Fitness Testing Grading Criteria P1 describe one test for each component of physical fitness, including advantages and disadvantages

M1 explain the advantages and disadvantages of one fitness test for each component of physical fitness P5: Select and safely administer six different fitness tests for a selected individual recording the findings

M3: Justify the selection of fitness tests commenting on suitability, reliability, validity and practicality

P6: Give feedback to a selected individual, following fitness testing, describing the test results and interpreting their levels of fitness against normative data.

M4: Compare the fitness test results to normative data and identify strengths and areas for improvement.

D2: Analyse the fitness test results and provide recommendations for appropriate future activities or training. Task 1 Task 2 Assignment 2: Lab and Field Testing The practical elements of the assignment will be completed in the practical lessons. Laboratory & Field-based Testing Topic 2: Fitness Testing for Sport Write down all the different fitness tests you can think of.


Try to write down the component of fitness that the test assesses


Can you think of more than one test for a component of fitness? Components of Fitness Objectives 1. Describe the components of fitness

2. Be able to decide which fitness test assesses which component of fitness

3. Describe each fitness test By the end of the lesson you should be able to... Components of Fitness Task 1: Try to match the component of sport with its description Extention Task: Match the correct sporting example to the correct component of fitness 2 hours of a marathon.

Tour de France (Cycling) – Muscle group of the legs.

Gymnast completing the splits.

Olympic lifting

Indoor 60m sprint

Boxer uses this to exert force at speed. Aerobic Endurance the ability for the cardiovascular and respiratory system to supply exercising muscles with oxygen to maintain exercise for a long period of time. Muscular Endurance the ability for a specific muscle or muscle group to sustain repeated contractions over an extended period of time. Flexibility the range of movement at a joint. Strength the ability of a muscle, or muscle group to exert force in a single maximal contraction to overcome resistance. Speed the ability to move a distance in the shortest time. Anaerobic Power the ability to exert maximum muscular contraction instantly in an explosive burst of movements - the combination of strength and speed. Fitness Tests Aerobic Endurance Muscular Endurance Flexibility Strength Speed Anaerobic Power Each of you will either be given a fitness test, or a description of a fitness test.

Through discussing the information with each other you must attempt to fill in the table on your worksheet

Some components have been given 2 tests Sporting Example What component of fitness is being tested?

How is the test adapted?

Why is the test adapted? Delivering Fitness Tests Multi-Stage Fitness Test Standing Long Jump Sit and Reach Test Vertical Jump Test 1 min Press-Up + Sit-Up Tests Grip Strength Dynamometer 35m Sprint Test - the consistency and repeatability of the results obtained. That is, the ability to carry out the same test method and expect the same results. Reliability - the accuracy of the results. This means whether the results obtained are a true reflection of what you are actually trying to measure. Validity The test requires the individual to make an 'all-out' effort to obtain valid results.

However, due to motivational issues it is difficult of ensure an athete exerts maximal effort. What other advantages and disadvantages are there? Advantages Disadvantages Easy to complete
Limited resources required
The test is quick
Published tables of normative data
Can modify test to make it suitable for all
Test should not have any longer-term physical impact Reliant on individuals motivation to exert maximal effort.
Ensuring correct technique is completed at all times.
Ability of athlete to perform test These may also be issues of validity, reliability, practicality and suitability Practicality - is it practical to administer the test. Is the equipment required accessible and relevant to the level of performer - is it the correct test to obtain the results required. This can include the sport, level of performer and whether the test has relevance to the performers ability. Suitability Advantages Disadvantages These may also be issues of validity, reliability, practicality and suitability Easy to complete
Limited resources required
The test is quick
Published tables of normative data
Test should not have any longer-term physical impact
Test is a good indicator of lower body anaerobic power Reliability will depend upon how strict the test is conducted and the individual's level of motivation to perform the test.
Human error in measurement should be allowed for
Test relies on athletes ability to complete test - some may have a more effective technique. Advantages Disadvantages Easy to complete, limited resources required
Test is quick to administer
Published tables of normative data are avaliable
Test can be modified for ability level Potential for inconsistency of test methods if an adequate warm-up is not done
Performance may be influenced by length of body segments (Wear, 1963)
Test is valid for all populations, however, Jackson and Baker (1986) reported that resulted for teenage girls poorly related to lower back flexibility. Advantages Disadvantages These may also be issues of validity, reliability, practicality and suitability Easy to complete
Limited resources required
The test is quick
Published tables of normative data
Test should not have any longer-term physical impact
Test is a good indicator of lower body anaerobic power Reliability will depend upon how strict the test is conducted and the individual's level of motivation to perform the test.
Human error in measurement should be allowed for - range of equipment used with varying results.
Test lacks sporting validity as a stationary vertical jump is rarely completed. Advantages Disadvantages Easy to complete
The test is quick
Published tables of normative data
Test should not have any longer-term physical impact Reliability will depend upon how strict the test is conducted and the individual's level of motivation to perform the test.
Specific resource required.
Test lacks sporting validity as a grip strength is only required in a few sports.
Test can be completed in varying ways. These may also be issues of validity, reliability, practicality and suitability Advantages Disadvantages Easy to complete
The test is quick
Published tables of normative data
Test should not have any longer-term physical impact
Test can be adapted to make it relevant to different sport requirements These may also be issues of validity, reliability, practicality and suitability Human error in measurement should be allowed for when using stopwatch method
Standing start not always relevant to sport
Athlete's ability to complete sprint start
Reaction time of athlete can impact negatively on the validity of results - does it test speed, or reaction time?
