    This involves pushing your body harder than normal. In order to do this, you can increase one or a combination of the following: Frequency - Train more often (i.e. from twice a week to three times a week) Intensity - Work harder in training (i.e. lift heavier weights) Duration - Train for longer each session (i.e. running for a further 5 minutes each week) Intensity The intensity of each training method is important because it governs the energy system being trained. For example: Example: During interval training it would be important to be working maximally (95-100% max. HR) if the aim was to improve the ATP-PC system. During fartlek training, aerobic training should be done at 70-85% so that the aerobic system is trained. The interval sprints should be conducted at 90-100% max. HR to ensure that the ATP-PC system is being taxed. Circuit and weight training is also important as it determines whether or not you train muscular strength, power or local muscular endurance. It can be explained in terms of perceived intensity (how it feels) or by repetition maximum.
