Intensity for Sport Activity Workouts
Understand the way workout intensity is affecting calculation of workout effort
Exercise intensity refers to how hard your body is working during physical activity. The intensity of а workout is divided into three levels:
Intensity is Low if you can talk without running out of breath while performing an activity – like playing with a kid.
Intensity is Moderate when you might be slightly sweating, but you can still carry on a conversation. If you can comfortably talk but not sing, you’re doing Medium intense activity.
Intensity is High when at the end of the session, you feel that you can not work at the end of the session. If you can’t say more than a few words without gasping for breath, you’re exercising at a vigorous intensity.
Based on the intensity level, we calculate the effort of each Sports activity. Here are a few examples of how the intensity level is affecting the calculation of the effort:
