Here is one more healthy guideline I forgot to add in to my earlier post!
Follow the FITT Principle:
–How often you exercise you should break a sweat at least 3-5 times a week for at least 60 mins.
–How hard or easy you exercise. The higher the intensity of your workout the more calories you burn, the more calories you burn the better results you will see.
– How long do you exercise for. Try to break a sweat for 60 minutes a day.
- What kind of exercise. Try to combine cardio-vascular exercise (anything that increases your rate) & Weight Training.
The FITT Principle is a great guideline to follow when figuring out what you want to do for exercise. As a future physical education teacher the FITT Principle is a smiple formula to teach our students. The FITT Principle explains how to chose and perform the physical activity that they are going to be participating in.
