The F.I.T.T. principle is the foundation of exercise, a set of guidelines that cover all the elements you need to think about to create workouts that fit your goals and fitness level, as well as helping you get the most out of your exercise time.
To follow this principle, make sure that your are considering the following:
- How many day/week are you working out?
- How hard are your workouts? Are you training in the right heart rate zone, how many sets/reps are you performing? When was the last time you took your 1 RM?
– How long is your workout? Are you working out long enough to get your desired results?
- What type of exercises are you performing? Are you cross-training? Are you changing the type of strength/endurance/cardio workouts you are performing each day?
When applying this principle on a regular basis, you will see the type of change you are looking for with your workout routine.
