    Continuous training This type of exercise is, as the name suggests, continuous! Rests are not allowed. To achieve this you must exercise at a constant rate which is within your aerobic training zone (60-80% max heart rate). Continuous training should last for bouts of at least 20 minutes (when starting) up to 2 hours or more! (think of a marathon!) Advantages - Needs only a small amount of easy to use, accessible equipment, if any Good for aerobic fitness Good for losing weight Disadvantages - can be boring Doesn't improve anaerobic fitness so isn't as good for team games like football or hockey which involve short bursts of speed
