    How Heart Rate Training Works

    Click here for a larger image

    When you train, you don’t always have to go faster or harder to get the best results. To reach your goals you just need
    to listen to your heart rate and train at the right intensity.

    During training, there are specific intensity zones, each with a benefit. These zones are based on a percentage of
    your maximum heart rate- a number calculated by most Polar heart rate monitors. While training you can use your max
    heart rate to calculate and follow the recommended zones below. Training in the right zone will help you stay on track
    to reach your goals.

    Zone 1 "Very Light" 50-60%: Improves overall health and helps recovery. Recommended for weight management and active
    recovery.

    Zone 2 "Light" 60-70%: Improves basic endurance and fat burning. Recommended for everybody for longer and frequently
    repeated short exercises.

    Zone 3 "Moderate" 70-80%: Improves aerobic fitness. Recommended for everybody for moderately long exercises.

    Zone 4 "Hard" 80-90%: Increases maximum performance capacity. Recommended for everybody for shorter exercises.

    Zone 5 "Maximum" 90-100%: Develops maximum performance and speed. Recommended for fit people and athletic training.

    (Calculate your Maximum Heart Rate: 200 - Your Age= Maximum Heart Rate.)
