Heart rate training provides a non-invasive look into the body…
…to estimate various stages of energy and metabloic production.
This information can then be applied to help estimate training zones and plans, design workouts that:
- are safe,
- are effective,
- are time efficient and
- will help maximize athlete potential.
Tracking your heart rate or knowing how hard you’re working is far more useful than simply following a stop watch.
For instance, running a 9 min mile at noon outdoors is going to require a lot more effort than running a 9 min mile on an indoor treadmill.
Therefore heart rates can help dictate workout loads more accurately and are a valuable indicator of training intensities.
However, before we even begin to discuss training intensities, it’s useful to understand ‘what’ we are training…
I’m going to cover that in the next couple of blog posts, stay tuned!
