hi.i am from greece.i am 33 years old but many years athlete.i read at the programs you suggest about the heart rates we must have on mind when we work aerobic-anaerobic zones.i think that the heart rates zones must be diffrent for the level of fitness for anyone.i mean that ok..i am 33 but when i run for example i keeping a tempo at 155-170 h-r without problem for a long.i have a friend who is athlete at bicycle.he keep a tempo at 160-180 and he can hit 200 h-r.i mean with this that maybe the 70% or the 80% is diffrent for some very fit people.if i am going for running and try to have 149-161{thats my 70-80%} i think that my heart will stop for coffee..

You are absolutely correct. Heart Rates will vary from person-to-person and definitely different. Heart Rates are also SPORT SPECIFIC. Meaning your max heart rate while rowing will be different than your max heart rate while running or racing. Check out this weeks article on Heart Rate Training for more details. it will be posted in two days (8/21/08). Please let me know if the article does not answer your questions. Thanks!

Heart rate zones are also specific to your fitness level...your zones should change as your fitness changes over the season. Some zones will shift up or down, some zones become wider and some get narrower. This is why it is important to re test for accurate and current training heart rate zones at least at the end of each training period.

One more thing....heart rate zones that are calculated on a Max Heart Rate are different from heart rate zones based on Lactate Threshold Heart Rate. In my opinion, heart rate zones based on the latter are more accurate since doing a test that determines Lactate Threshold is testing the breakpoint of where your body cannot get rid of lactate faster than it is accumulating which signals the point where your body cannot supply all the energy demands aerobically. Since you are using heart rate zones to estimate where you are aerobically generating energy and where you are not this method of calculating heart rate is more indicative of your aerobic training goals.

Max Heart rate has very little to do with Lactate Threshold Heart Rate and will not change much if at all with changes in fitness. This means heart rate zones based on one Max Heart Rate number will not change over the course of a season when your fitness changes. Since Lactate Threshold changes with fitness and in fact is a major goal of aerobic training (raising your lactate threshold is a goal) your heart rate zones can change and thus ensure that you are continually working on the correct part of your fitness as your body changes in response to training.

I don't think that is my program. I never posted an actual program on Racer X VT. I usually write articles on how somoene can create their own program vs. just putting a program up.
