Physical Education - Training principles: intensity
The intensity of each training method is important because it governs the
energy system being trained.
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 .
