Very little has changed in bodybuilding training principles since my time as Mr Australia. Besides the development of resistance training equipment and supplementation, the fundamentals are built on the FITT principle including Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type of training. Within this includes the rest between sets, cadence of repetitions performed, training split, volume of training load, and order of exercises performed.
On September 3 this year, Service Skills Australia endorsed the new Sport Fitness & Recreation Training Package. The new training package has significant changes that will be sure to impact the learner, the future client and the fitness industry as a whole.
