Continuous training is a type of physical training that involves activity without rest intervals It is divided into three parts (1) slow continuous running, (2) fast continuous training, (3) variable pace.
- Intensity will be low and heart beat 60%-80% of HRmax. 20 mins high intensity
- Intensity will be high and heart beat 85%-95%- of HRmax, duration will be 15-20minutes,
- It is the combination of both the runnings. This type of training may be of high intensity, or moderate intensity with an extended duration, or fartlek training.
Exercise modes noted as suitable for continuous training include indoor and outdoor cycling, jogging, running, walking, rowing, stair climbing, simulated climbing, Nordic skiing, elliptical training, aerobic riding, aerobic dancing, bench step aerobics, hiking, in-line skating, rope skipping, swimming, and water aerobics.
