The F.I.T.T. principle is a simple set of rules for getting the most out of an exercise program.
F.I.T.T. is an acronym that stands for:
Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type
The four parts work together for a comprehensive workout plan.
The first part of the principle is "Frequency"
The second part of F.I.T.T. is "Intensity"
The Talk Test:
• During light intensity, you should be able to sing a song.
• During moderate intensity, you should be able to carry on a conversation.
• During vigorous intensity, you should be winded and have trouble speaking.
- An appropriate intensity is somewhere between the
moderate and vigorous levels of intensity.
- You should not be able to carry on a long-winded conversation, but you should
be able to communicate with a training partner.
