Heart Rates & Training Zones
Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) - the maximum amount of times your heart can beat in one minute 220 – AGE = MHR 220 – 15 = 205 bpm Aerobic Training Zone Anaerobic Training Zone 60 – 80 % of MHR (205) = 80 - 100 % of MHR (205) = 124 172 ____ bpm to____ bpm 172 205 ____ bpm to____ bpm
As part of his Personal Exercise Programme (PEP) Joe measures his heart rate to check on his fitness levels. (a) The heart rate monitors in the figure below show three different heart rate values. Re-order these heart rate values and plot a graph to show Joe's resting, working and recovery heart rate. The lowest heart rate is the Resting Heart Rate (RHR) The highest heart rate is the Working Heart rate (WHR) The heart rate in between these is the recovery heart rate. The more quickly recovery takes place the fitter you are. This is because the heart is more efficient at replacing the oxygen to the muscles.
Training Zones Threshold means boundary Upper anaerobic threshold Lower anaerobic threshold Upper aerobic threshold Lower aerobic threshold
What are their TARGET training zones? A Sprinter would train in the anaerobic training zone. This is because sprinting I a high intensity activity that does not require oxygen A marathon runner would train in the aerobic training zone. This is because a marathon is an aerobic activity that requires oxygen
