    • Duration
    • Frequency
    • Intensity
    • Progressive overload
  2. What are the aspects of activit the specificity addresses
    • The predominent energy system
    • Fitness components used
    • Muscle groups used
    • Skills performed
  3. What is the intensity for the three energy systems?
    • ATP-PC 95-100% of maximum heart rate
    • Lactic acid 85-89% of maximum heart rate
    • Aerobic 70-85% of maximum heart rate
