semi specific heart rate question

Postby tugger » Sun Nov 11, 2012 19:17 pm

Hi,

Im pretty new to HR training and have a quiery

Ive doe two training sessions on a static bike with a 5min warm up and 2 or 3 reps of 20mins at 80% max HR (garmin estimated) with 5 min rests in between.

Would people say that this sort of session is good or should I look at more of a pyramid structure with a higher HR at times for these sorts of sessions?

These are hour sessions that I am doing when the weather is pap, which I am mixing with spinning, longer road rides and mtb riding.

Does anyone know any websites with example HR training sessions or even better ones that can be downloaded onto a garmin 800

sorry if some of these topics have been covered before

What do you mean?, as in a theoretical MHR?

yeah, well the garmin does an estimated max hr, so im going on percentages based on that. I assume it works on the old classic 200-age or it might be more clever and take your max hr as the highest recorded on the unit, but I doubt it does that..

In that case, until you have determined your MHR or LT HR (properly) to set your zones, you may as well not bother with HR.

surely it cant be that inaccurate and thus ineffective?

It can, and in many cases, it is.

If you are going to spend the time training to HR, you might as well spend the small amount of time to get it right
