Aerobic Exercise Guidelines

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

  • Frequency - 3-5 days per week.
  • Intensity - 60% to 90% of maximum heart rate. (Worksheet 5-1.)
  • Time - 30-60 minutes within your target heart rate zone.
  • Type - continuous, low resistance, high repetition activities.

The guidelines for aerobic exercise "intensity" and "type" can be ambiguous and will be outlined in greater detail in the next two sections.
