Episode Info:

This week we go all in on heart rate training zones. In the next 35 minutes I'll give you an idea why this little nugget of technology is effective and affordable.

I reference Don and Melanie Fink's book "Ironfit Secrets for Half Iron Distance Triathlon Success"

MHR = 220 - your age

Running Zones

Zone 1 65-74 percent of your MHR        Zone 2 75-85 percent      Zone 3 86-89 percent

Zone 4 90-95 percent

Cycling- Remember you'll use a 5% decrease in each zone.. So take the number you calculated above and reduce each one by 5% and that will give you the corresponding zones.  Typically within your watch, for a fact Garmin 910XT, you can set heart rate zones specific to the task at this...don't be lazy, it's really easy.  Then when you switch from bike to run, your HRZ's are automatically changed and you don't have to do math and run/bike at the same time. Cause math sucks worse than exercise.
