There are plenty of useful sites for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance that I use all the time. They provide up-to-date information and cover lots of content.
The first of our useful sites for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance is Australian Association of Strength and Conditioning (ASCA). They don’t provide a lot of free information to kick us off, but do provide links to resources that are beneficial and publish regular Journal. While you don’t get access to the entire Journal without paying or becoming a member, you can get previews of articles and view abstracts (summaries) of studies that look at relevant information for HSC PDHPE. For example, the most recent Journal has an article on mesocycles for MMA.The next useful site for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance is National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). This is the American version of ASCA, and has much more free content for HSC PDHPE. They have videos that can be accessed and plenty of free articles that cover content under FAP and IP, such as “The central concepts related to periodisation“. Both the videos and articles are found under the education tab.
Possibly the best of the useful sites for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance resource online for FAP and IP is the Strength and Conditioning Research website. This website contains a mountain of information on the various types of training, periodisation, nutrition and more. The easiest way to find something is to search for it and look through what comes up. All this information is current research and very useful for looking at training and performance.
The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) also provide some useful information. The site can be hard to navigate, so I often search through Google and limit my finding to www.ausport.gov.au. They have information on nutrition and technology along with plenty of other relevant information.
Sports Dietitians Australia (SDA) also provide plenty of useful content related to sports nutrition. Of particular use are their factsheets and blog. Adding to our list of useful sites for Factors Affecting and Improving Performance is the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) both providing plenty of information around the use of drugs in sport.
