20 markers predictions??
Possibly elite sports systems? Unsure really judging by my other exams this year the question could be really obscure!

think energy systems will make an appearance... possibly as a 20 marker, not to sure, could be a horrible paper

When writing a 20 mark question are you's all told to discuss and argue each point?

If you can argue against I would especially if the question is a discuss.

It's looking like there will be a lot on history as it hasn't come up in a few years. If it does I'm in trouble 😲

Overall it was ok. I liked the first half of the paper, but struggled with the elite sports management stuff because I didn't really get around to revising that. What did you guys write for the 20 marker on performance profiling? Found question 9 good

Niall_18 , Helps to identify strengths and weaknesses, build a relationship between coach & performer, provides baseline to monitor future performance, wagon wheel as an example, to identify role for performer, to compare against other performers. Counterarguments: waste of time, could be spent doing an actual training session and a couple others points.

Very similar to what I wrote. For the question on fatigue, did you mention about how the bod begins to utilise fat for energy once it has run out of glycogen, leading to fatigue?

Niall_18 oops no I didn't but that's a good point. I basically kept repeating myself, something along the lines of:

- depletion of glycogen means no respiratory substrate --> resp slows --> less energy
- depletion of CP stores means no resp substrate --> resp. slows --> less energy
- no energy to remove lactic acid --> accumulates --> fatigue
- mentioned central governor's theory.

I wasn't too sure with that qn.

That's quite detailed. I also mentioned depletion of calcium ions leads to muscle inefficiency. What did you put for anaerobic adaptations?

anaerobic adaptations: increased enzymes which buffer lactic acid, increase breakdown of lactic acid --> glycogen, inc breakdown lactic acid --> CO2 + H2O, increase phosphocreatine stores, increase myofibrillar hypertrophy, increased muscular hypertrophy. pretty much that

There's loads of adaptations for anaerobic. I mentioned: increased rate of fibre recruitment---greater force production, increased strength of connective tissue---reduce chance of injury, increased vo2 max---greater cardiovascular ability and delays onset of fatigue and muscular hypertrophy. What methods did you mention for q9?

yeah all sounds like good stuff. err.. i went into quite a bit of detail with regards to kit selection, diet manipulation, hydration strategy. how about you?

Divided it into physiological, psychological and technical;

Physiological;
Warm up
Stretching
Dietary manipulation-pre performance meals
Psychological:
Rituals such as the Haka
Coping strategies
Technical:
Ice vests if playing in hot environment
Computer software such as prozone to remind players of tactics
Discussion:
Athletes come to dependent on methods- takes away natural talent/spontaneity
Relates to income/unequal playing field
