# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Sports Medicine II Task 1276117437

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

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

Process/Skill Questions

  • 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?
