Explain FITT principle of training.


There are four principles of fitness training and are applicable to individuals exercising at low to moderate training levels and may be used to establish guidelines for both cardiorespiratory and resistance training.

  1. Frequency: - The frequency of exercise is a fine balance between providing just enough stress for the body to adapt to and allowing enough time for healing and adaptation to occur.
  2. Intensity: - It defines the amount of effort that should be invested in a training program or any one session. Like the first FITT principle - frequency - there must be a balance between finding enough intensity to overload the body but not so much that it causes over training.
  3. Type: - It dictates what type or kind of exercise you should choose to achieve the appropriate training response
  4. Time: - It should be fixed so that health would not get affected.
