Heart Rate Training Zones
|Zone 150-64% MaxHR||
Zone to be in when doing recovery rides - helps to flush muscles between more intense training sessions.
|Zone 265-74% MaxHR||
Use this zone to build up your aerobic base fitness.
|Zone 375-84% MaxHR||
Builds an increase in muscle glycogen storage. 'No mans land' too fast for aerobic base building, too slow for raising VO2MAX and lactate threshold.
|Zone 485-91% MaxHR||
Strength endurance training level. Typically used in interval training.
|Zone 592-100% MaxHR||
Increases VO2MAX. Short very intense intervals.
*Max HR calculation is based on Tanaka H, Monahan K. D, Seals D. R., (2001) Age-predicted maximal heart rate revisited.
MaxHR = 208 - 0.7 * Age.
