Fitness Brevity


I wrote the following to a friend last week in an e-mail.  I figured it might be of value to some of the readership so here it goes.

I think the sweet spot is to spend 75% of your workout time on strength training and 25% on aerobic training.

Within those percentages I find it best to spend 80% of your time at 80% effort, 10% of your time at 100% effort, and 10% of your time at 60% effort.
