That’s an acronym that’s easy to remember.
FREQUENCY — how often you work out.
INTENSITY — how hard your maximum exertion is
TIME — how long you go.
You can vary any of the three. Longer, less intense workouts are as good or better for heart health as short, extreme workouts. Fewer, more intense workouts tend to be better for strength development than doing the same low intensity lifts each day.
And if you’re short on time, you can up the frequency and/or intensity to compensate. Four 15 minute workouts in one day is the rough equivalent of an hour or continuous exercise.
