Explain safe training principles to include frequency, intensity, duration, and mode.
Explanation should include a definition of frequency, intensity, time, type, and enjoyment (FITTE) and explain the relationship among these five concepts. It should also address what constitutes safety and appropriateness for each concept:
- Frequency--Allow for adequate physiological recovery time
- Intensity--Ensure adequate duration to accomplish the goal without premature failure or to improve aerobic or anaerobic energy systems
- Time--Perform the task to match the goal or to avoid premature failure or to see gains
- Type--Ensure that exercise choice is appropriate for accomplishing the goal (mode of exercise)
- Enjoyment--Attain pleasure from exercising
- What is the relationship among frequency, intensity, duration, and mode?
- What is a practical measure of each concept in a given situation?
- What are examples of different levels of intensity? What goals would each level be trying to achieve?
