as I was a late starter I am now in my 8th week of training.
First week I did only one LT test (rower). My average HR was 180
Now this week I have done 2 LT test, first was on rower and today I made it on stationary bike.
On rower my average HR was now 184, wich actually surprised me. I thought it would get lower, but I am not worried as I can feel allready the difference in my fitness.
Now the stationary bike was strange for me. Actually I have only used rower up to this point. To be honest I really do not like riding bicycle for a long distance, my butt agrees. So I warmed up 5 minutes, strectched a bit and then begin my 30min all out test.
As I have not been pedaling at all for quite some time it was a bit difficult to judge the right tempo to use. I think the test was 90% successful because I did not fade towards the end, actually I even pedalad a bit harder the last few minutes to really get that vision blurry.
All in all, average HR for the last 20 min was 182 and my peak HR being 193 before the end.
Considering my slight miscalculation , do you think it would be OK to use the same zones that I calculated for rower (avg. HR 184)?
And one more question. Now that I am in Maximum strenght phase do I understand right that in gym I should do, for example, first hip press set, rest for a few seconds, do 2md hip press set, rest again for a few seconds and do the 3rd and final hip press set and move on to the next excersise?
