What is FITT?
A great way of monitoring your exercise program is the FITT formula. The acronym FITT reflects to the main components of an effective exercise program and stands for Frequency, Intensity, Time and Type.
Frequency: Frequency refers to the time of exercise taken or how often you regularly workout. Providing just enough stress for the body to adapt to and allowing enough time for healing and helpful changes to happen is a fine balance between the frequency of exercise.
Intensity: Intensity refers to the intense of exercise undertaken or how hard you exercise. This also requires to make sure the intensity is hard enough to overload the body and the amount of effort you put in it but not so that it results in over training, injury or burnout.
Time: Time refers to the time you spend exercising or how long you exercise for. It usually depends on the type of workout that is undertaken.
Type: Type refers to the type or kind of exercise you decide to participate to achieve the appropriate training response.
The FITT principle is used to guide the development of unique and custom-made fitness plans that supplies for an independent specific needs.
What is SAID?
One of the most important basic idea in sport science is the SAID principle. It is an acronym which stands for Specific Adaptation Imposed and Demand. It starts to make helpful changes that will allow the body to get better at resisting that particular kind of stress in the future when the body's position is under some type of stress.
Specific: Specific refers to the body that only makes helpful changes to resist the specific stress it meets.
Adaption: Adaptation refers to the far more hard and complicated adaptation, such as learning new physical skills. As you practice physical skills, there are many physical changes as a result of the brain.
Imposed: Imposed refers to a state that you must place a stress to the body that passes it usual beginning point. When doing something particular you want to get better at, Imposing forces the body causes it to adapt and improve
Demand: This means that you are demanding yourself to step forward or to keep going without giving up through the process of the workout.
