Training Variables in Every Program

At Destiny Health, we write programs to assist your health and fitness goals. Every program that we write, whether it’s a gym program or a general exercise program, or a sports specific program, has variables based on Exercise Science that need to be taken into account. Let’s take a brief look into some of these variables now, considering the questions asked when designing a program.

FREQUENCY: How many sessions are being completed per week? How many sessions per body part? I.e 6 sessions per week, legs twice a week.

VOLUME: How much training in general is being completed per week? I.e 3 x 60 minutes (180 minutes) or 5 x 60 minutes (300 minutes).

INTENSITY: How hard is each session? How hard is each bout or repetition? I.e 7/10 Rate of Perceived Exertion, 120bpm to 140bpm Heart Rate.

REST PERIODS: How much rest is being taking between sets and between sesssions?

WORKING TIME: How much time is spent actually performing the exercises per session?

PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD: Is every session getting a little bit harder? I.e Reps in reserve, weight lifted etc.

PROGRAM DURATION: What is the end date of the program? 4 weeks? 6 weeks?

RECOVERY: What down time is there to rest and are you getting enough sleep and nutrients to recover between sessions and programs?
