Total Heart Rate Training
CUSTOMIZE AND MAXIMIZE YOUR WORKOUT USING A HEART RATE MONITOR
Whether you are just starting a fitness program or are an experienced athlete, you can greatly benefit from paying attention to your heart rate during exercise. Heart rate serves as a window into the body, giving you minute-to-minute feedback on your physical condition based on all the factors affecting it – exercise intensity, diet, temperature, humidity, altitude, fatigue, and more.
Total Heart Rate Training explains:
- Heart function during exercise
- How heart rate monitors work
- Simple ways to use a heart rate monitor
- Advanced heart rate training techniques
With Total Heart Rate Training, you can design a personalized program that practically guarantees youâ€™ll achieve your fitness goals. Youâ€™ll be able to determine the precise and optimal heart rate for each dayâ€™s workout by using your heart rate monitor to keep you on target. Itâ€™s like having a personal trainer telling you when to go harder and when to back off.
This book also shows how powermeters and accelerometers enable you to compare your bodyâ€™s input, as measured by heart rate, with its output-power or pace. Itâ€™s a combination that allows you to train at your peak for that competitive edge.
