In Heart Rate Training, Second Edition, authors Roy Benson and Declan Connolly combine decades of coaching experience, scientific research, and practical knowledge to help you understand the best way to make your heart rate monitor work for you. They will show you how to get reliable data from your device, dispel myths surrounding heart rate monitors, and make it easy for you to calculate your ideal target heart rate. Then you’ll learn how to customize your training by varying the intensity, duration, frequency, and mode of your exercise sessions as you work toward improving endurance, stamina, economy, and speed.
Information on heart rate variability (HRV) training further prepares you to individualize your training plan based on your personal goals. As a bonus, sample exercise programs will guide you in manipulating training components to design long-term training plans for walking, running, cycling, swimming, triathlons, rowing, cross-country skiing, and team sports.
When you are ready to take training and performance to the next level, turn to Heart Rate Training, and achieve your personal best.
