Part 2 of F.I.T.T.
Time is similar to frequency in it’s ability to compliment a progressive routine and allow for flexibility in unusual circumstances. By starting with 30 minutes a day of activity and increasing to 60 minutes, you can gradually build strength and endurance without overdoing it.
When life throws a wrench in your workout plans, you can adjust your training time accordingly to accommodate for prior engagements. Implementing a circuit training routine both decreases time while increasing intensity, thus maximizing results.
This is where constant variation can not only provide opportunities for fun and challenging exercises, but it also keeps you open minded about changing up your routine when you may be forced to. Variation in the type of exercises you do will coincide with a progressive training routine, constantly challenging your body to move in different ways while developing muscles in a more efficient manner.
Being familiar with different types of exercises and activity will ensure a successful workout session, no matter what situations may arise. Many times you may find cardio equipment under maintenance or you may be working out at “prime time” in the gym where you end up waiting for a specific machine. Rather than wasting your time, you can find different types of exercises that achieve the same desired effect.
By utilizing the F.I.T.T factors, you can design a progressive program that fits your fitness goal, no matter what life has to throw at you. NO EXCUSES!!!
