Aerobic Exercise Guidelines

The FITT Principle guidelines discussed in Chapter 4 and outlined in the Physical Activity Pyramid for cardiorespiratory training are:



♦ Intensity - 60% to 90% of maximum heart rate (Max HR).

♦ Time - 30-60 minutes per day within your target heart rate zone.

♦ Type - continuous, low resistance, high repetition activities. The guidelines for exercise "intensity" and "type" are discussed next.
