Example text

Planned exercise or recreational activity such as an aerobics class, hiking, hiking, tennis, swimming, or strength training may also be used.  This is not an issue of right and wrong, or easy versus moderate or vigorous exercise, but an issue of personal knowledge, appropriateness, and encouraging a majority of the population to exercise effectively.  More important, fitness training should encompass the capability and personal desire to maintain this activity level throughout life while experiencing a consistent level of enjoyment—you should like what you're doing!

A second approach uses the activity or sport, along with other nonspecific cross­training activities, to develop fitness and improve performance while simultaneously keeping the training progressing.  Each must be given equal emphasis and preferential time.  For most active people who have achieved a desirable level of fitness, the goal may be variety of activity, solidifying current fitness levels, and establishing commitment to exercise on a regular basis. KEY POINT Ongoing evaluation of your needs and goals is a necessity, whether you're just starting an exercise program or have attained a high level of fitness.

Reevaluate goals, progress, and effectiveness of the program after each daily workout, and especially after each 3­ 0r 4­week mesocycle.  Thie "unloading" phase is critical to optimizing results and minimizing injury potential.  Intensity should reflect your personal fitness level and personal goals.  When developing meso­or macrocycles, makes sure that all necessary fitness components are included in the planning process and emphasized in the right amounts (frequency, duration) and intensity to move you toward the accomplishment of your goals.
