Research Impact: Fundamental movement skills (FMS) are frequently referred to as the “building blocks” of movement for children and adolescents in their lifelong physical activity journey. This paper explored whether the frequency, intensity, time, and type (FITT) principle commonly used in fitness training could be transferable to interventions focusing on FMS development, and if so, whether sufficient consistency of findings exists to guide practitioners in their session design.
