The F.I.T.T. Principle Of Training Can Be Applied To All Methods Of Training.

FITT Means:

Frequency: The number of times per week you train, for maximum benefit you should look to train 3 times per week minimum.

Intensity: The level of which you workout at.  This can be measured by your heart rate.

Time: Length of time that you spend on each workout.  This should be for at least 30mins, but an hour is what you should be looking at each workout.

Type: What the exercise is, whether it is resistance or CV, it should be a combination of both.


Overload: Increasing the resistance so that it is greater than the body is used to.

Progression: Moving on, so as the level of training gets easier, as the body adapts you increase the effort level at which you are working at.

Reversibility: If you don’t train you will loose the benefits that you have gained, loosing fitness levels, or loss of muscle tone.

Specificity: This could relate to training for a specific sport, or for training a particular part of your body.
