I am going to build a Macrocycle for 6 weeks of resistance training, this will be in place for me to increase my strength and improve on my muscle mass. My goal over the 6 week programme will be to see a ''difference in my strength ability and muscle mass'In order for me to achieve this goal I will be using SMART goals which will run throughout the programme in each of the 6 weeks.

I am improving my resistance training for my boxing performance. I will be using a periodised plan as this will able me to set out specific for different aspects of my training as each week I will work on a specific goal which will allow me to achieve my overall goal. I will have two days of rest throughout each of the 6 weeks to give my muscles time to recover, as well as this to prevent any serious injury's in order for me to perform the following week. I will be reviewing each of my goals every week.

  1. Good start to your blog! However you have missed out;
    1. What stage of the periodised plan are you?
    2. Explain your loading periods? (E.g. 5 days on/ 2 days off)
    3. Describe in your table what part of your body you will be training on what day? and why?
    4. Aims/ Goals must be clearly stated at the start if each week and reviewed at the end of the week.
    5. What components of fitness are you aiming to improve over the macro cycle?

    Include this into your plan and explain how you will use these principles through the 6 weeks.

    The key principles when planning a programme are:

    Specificity – training must be matched to the needs of the sporting activity to improve fitness in the body parts the sport uses.
    Overload - fitness can only be improved by training more than you normally do. You must work hard.
    Progression – start slowly and gradually increase the amount of exercise and keep overloading.
    Reversibility – any adaptation that takes place as a result of training will be reversed when you stop training. If you take a break or don’t train often enough you will lose fitness.

    Good start but please make changes.
