In applying the F.I.T.T principle it does depend on what stage of the training year the individual/team are in. We will look at examples from different stages. Obviously this differs from an elite athlete to an amateur player.
Dependant on stage of the training year.
When working for endurance 4-5 x a week.
Speed, power, strength etc… 3-4 x a week.
For training the aerobic systems the target heart rate is approx 70-85% of MHR.
For training the anaerobic systems the target heart rate is approx 85-100% MHR.
This differs from 1hr of a variety of components to focus of just one component at different stages of a season
Can be a whole training year at the elite level.
Could be minimum 12 weeks for others
