General SISS Guidelines 06:19

When creating a SISS protocol follow these guidelines:

  • Identify whether you will be continuously training at Moderate Intensity (RPE of 5-7 or roughly 60-70% HRmax for most) or Low intensity (RPE 4 or below or below 60%). Remember the intensity is predicated on the client’s ability levels. 
  • Watch for Cardiac drift (a slow climb of heart rate as the duration of exercise increases).
  • Ideal durations are between 30-120minutes if only training SISS in a given session.
  • Choose from the 4 main modalities (Cyclical, PHA, WBI, ADL’s) when designing a workout or section of a workout.
