Simply put,intensity is determined by an athlete's power output or how much work he/she can complete in a certain amount of time, but keep in mind that intensity is all relative. Therefore, as long as YOU attack each workout with 100% of YOUR effort, you will be able to create some sort of positive physical or psychological change (assuming your training program is suitable, your form and technique is impeccable, and your recovery strategies are spot on.)
