Should I follow the FITT principle for exercise?
National Academy of Sports Medicine answeredYes the FITT principle which stands for Frequency, Intensity, Type, and Time, should dictate your planning for all workouts you perform. By manipulating how many days a week you work out, how hard, what types of workouts you perform and for how long, you can improve fitness and decrease the risk of over training. If you perform the exact same workout, at the same intensity for the same of length of time, the same days of the week, this will lead to boredom, over training, lack of progress and possibly injury. Always strive for variety in your programs to decrease the risk of injury, and boredom, and to continue to see improvements.
