Heart Rate Training Zones

Heart Rate Training Zones

by Super Dave, Industry Expert

By using a heart rate monitor, you'll actually be able to train less and benefit more. Before attempting heart rate training, you'll need to get the okay from your doctor for a maximum stress.

How to determine your maximum heart rate
First, get permission from your doctor to run a maximum-effort test. Next, buy or borrow a heart rate monitor. Then head for the nearest oval running track. Warm up for 10-15 minutes. Then run a mile (4 laps), going all-out during the final laps. As soon as you finish, note the highest reading on your monitor.
