Physical Education - Training principles: intensity

Intensity

The intensity of each training method is important because it governs the
energy system being trained.

For 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 [1], 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 [2]. It
can be explained in terms of perceived intensity (how it feels) or by
repetition maximum [3].
