Energy Systems

Energy Systems is when energy operates our bodies, makes our bodies work and move. We normally get energy from food. In Energy systems there are three specific systems. They are ATP-PC, Anaerobic and Aerobic. In ATP-PC, PC stands Phosphate Creatine. This is a body source for energy that are stored in our muscles. ATP-PC is when we do powerful and short moves in a sport, this lasts about 0 - 12 seconds. An example is a spike in volleyball, short but powerful. Anaerobic is when we have enough oxygen in our muscles, for a short period of time, mainly around 12 secs - 2 minutes. An example is the first 2 minutes of a volleyball game. Aerobic is when we need oxygen to last a long period of time in a game. An example for any sport is the whole game.

Fitness Suite Circuit - R13


  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we participated in was a Fitness Suite Circuit. We had 8 stations with different fitness tasks. They were, Cycling, Rowers, Lunge Jumps, Bicep Curls, Russian twists, Burpees, Medicine Ball Squats and Agility Zig Zag. We did 2 rounds with 45 seconds each station. The last round was a 20 second station with 1 minutes breaks throughout each station.
  • What level of effort and engagement were you participating at during today’s physical activity? Why? (Grade yourself NA, A or M and refer to marking criteria)
I give myself a Merit because I was prepared and organised by bringing my gear, I worked hard towards my goal which was finish the circuit at a high level, I supported my team mate when she got tired, I showed happy vibes throughout the activity and I did my best by allowing myself to overcome the tired emotions.
  • What were three factors which influenced your participation? (Choose from the list below, and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).
Fitness -, Equipment -, Sense of Achievement +
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Fitness affected my participation in a negative because I am unfit. This made me get tired super fast, which made me not want to go on with the fitness circuit. I would try my best but then end up taking a rest. An example was when I was doing the burpees. Instead of doing a push up and then getting back up, I stayed on the ground lol. To prevent this more, I will need to have a stronger and better mindset before we begin.
Equipment affected my participation because I brought the wrong clothes. Instead of bringing shorts, I brought track pants. This made my legs hot a lot quicker, which made me sweat more than I should've. By sweating even more, it distracted me from the circuit because I was too busy cooling myself off. An example was when we were cycling, I went to the window instead of cycling lol.
Sense of Achievement affected my participation because I was eager to set and finish a goal I put in my head. That was to finish each station at my best performance. By setting this goal, it made me work hard despite all the distractions, such as sweat and heat. An example was when it was the 20 second round. I went hard out and got the job done.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
To increase my participation I would not only be physically prepared, but also mentally prepared for this kind of Physical Activity. This would help me be ready in 2 ways.

Table Tennis - R12

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we participated in was Table Tennis, but besides playing, we had to set up the table instead. After setting up the table we played 2 v 2 against each other, until we had a winner.
  • What level of effort and engagement were you participating at during today’s physical activity? Why? (Grade yourself NA, A or M and refer to marking criteria)
I give myself a Merit because I was prepared and organised by bringing my gear to PE, I worked hard towards our goal by supporting my class mates when setting up the table, I showed enjoyment in the game while we were playing 2 v 2 and I did my best when there were multiple tasks to do when setting up.
  • What were three factors which influenced your participation? (Choose from the list below, and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).
Sense of Achievement +, Challenge +, Equipment -
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Sense of Achievement affected my participation in a positive way because I worked towards a goal I set in my head. That goal was to help set up the table within a suitable time, before we could play. By doing this, I was able to help out more and make myself useful for when there was a task that needed to be done. An example was when I helped a friend unscrew a tight bolt, so that we could put the proper one on.
Challenge affected my participation in a positive way because it made me more eager to finish the task. By having an urge to finish this task, it allowed me to participate and help out more. If someone got distracted and wanted to play with the other table tennis, I would take there job so the process wouldn't slow down. By doing this, it made me accept the fact that things go faster and better in a group, not by yourselves.
Equipment affected my participation in a negative way because it distracted me from doing good plays. The distraction came from the fact that there were old bats and new bats. Some bats had less grip than others, which caused the bat to slowly slip out of my hand when playing. An example was when I was going to serve the ping pong, but the ball missed the bat and went into the net, all because of it being unstable.


  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
Something I would do to increase my peers participation is get them into groups, and give them certain jobs in a situation or task like this. This will allow everyone to give a hand and get the job done faster.
