In the first course of becoming a Metabolic Fitness Expert we cover METs which details how to use precise exercise without a heart rate monitor. That is because I wanted you to be given the chance to understand how exercise intensity works and how it directly relates to your current level of fitness.
But, with a heart rate monitor we can make this a whole lot simpler.
Why? – When you wear a HR monitor, you are effectively monitoring your engine with a speedometer.
Yes, you are tapped into how hard your body is finding what you are doing!
Heart rate training can become very specific to a person’s goals and incorporate several levels of intensity to suit the kind of improvements you are wishing to make.
In this training course we examine 5 zones:
Zone 1: Conditioning Healthy Heart or Recovery Training
Zone 2: Improved Health Training or Stamina Building
Zone 3: Aerobic Capacity Training or Race Pace
Zone 4: Fitness Improvement Threshold Training or Developing Anaerobic Power
Zone 5: High Performance Peak Training or Peak Power Output
