TRAINING and conditioning develop strength and the other components of physical fitness, while practice plus experience produces development of skill.

Training the mind for physical fitness however should be actively maintained through induced practice for improvement of the physical fitness of the individual, following conditioning programs that will take the physical fitness factors into account.

Conditioning takes into account the determination of the individual’s exercise capacity or tolerance and does conditioning programs that falls within their training capacity as individuals.


Although training programs for conditioning varies because of age, physical condition, health, and similar conditions, adequate progression should be made by adding small increments of exercise work as the individual’s exercise tolerance improves.

Contributory to this is the regularity and frequency of exercise where development and improvement of the physical wellbeing of the individual can be enhanced.

The participation of an individual in scheduled exercises every day or three times a week is essential to attain the individuals’ conditioning goal.

As the body develops and improves through regular exercise, it also adapt and adjusts to the demands that are imposed by vigorous exercises to the body, and where the body’s system responds to the stresses encountered, specialization in exercise programs is needed, such as strength training, cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, and flexibility activities which are necessary for the establishment of training and conditioning programs.

As one familiarizes himself with the given training and conditioning program, the body also familiarizes with the demands imposed upon it and on the process; demands placed on the body are intensified or increased.

Training overload is a method of training by increasing the work rate or intensity of exercise.

As an individual exercise for a given period of time against workloads that are above those normally encountered in a regular basis within the person’s capacity, more improvements on the individuals’ physical well being as to strength, flexibility, endurance as well as cardio respiratory endurance is achievable.
