2 Heart Rate Training AND OTHER WAYS TO MEASURE INTENSITY

3 Training Intensity ▪ When we train, we balance a number of factors to try to create a training effect. ▪ To do this we use the SAID Principle ▪ Specific ▪ Adaptations to ▪ Imposed ▪ Demands ▪ The Demands are imposed using the FITT principle ▪ Frequency ▪ Intensity ▪ Time and ▪ Type of activity

4 Measuring Intensity ▪ We can measure intensity in a wide variety of ways, all focused on the fundamental formula ▪ VO2=(hr*sv)*(A-V o2 diff) ▪ As we exercise more intently our VO2 increase. In a lab we can measure expired gases to tell how intense the work is… but that doesn’t work well in real life ▪ So, we can look in the formula above for something we can measure easily ▪ And that is Heart Rate

5 Measuring Intensity ▪ You can measure that intensity in a few ways ▪ RPE or Rating of Perceived Exertion is simply asking yourself, how hard do I feel I’m working ▪ This is typically measured on either a Borg scale which ask you to rate your work on a scale of ▪ Or a modified Borg scale which uses ▪ We have adopted the modified Borg Scale for On the Run.

6 Measuring Intensity ▪ You can measure intensity using pace ▪ If you know your pace for specific distances you can use that to measure intensity. We can use something called FTP (Functional Threshold Pace (or Power on the bike)) to determine paces. ▪ FTP is the maximum speed you can maintain for a minute effort. ▪ You can also use the pace at which you have run a recent race of over 30 minutes ▪ Then using percentages of FTP we can set intensities ▪ You can do the same with a Power meter on a bike trainer Using Pace or Power

7 Measuring Intensity ▪ With Experienced athletes we can also determine intensity by working backward from the race goal ▪ This is only really effective with an experienced athlete who has previous races to draw on so we can know the paces are correct Using Race Goals

8 Measuring Intensity ▪ There are several ways to do this: ▪ Heart rate charts (common at the Gym) ▪ Calculations from your age determined max heart rate ▪ Calculations from your actual determined heart rate in a maximal effort ▪ Calculations from your age determined max heart rate and your measured resting heart rate ▪ Calculations from your actual determined heart rate in a maximal effort and your measured resting heart rate (The Karvonen Method) Using Heart Rate

9 Measuring Intensity The Karvonen Method uses both your resting heart rate and your max heart rate to determine your zones The difference between your resting heart rate and your max heart rate is called your Heart Rate Reserve (HRR) Example: Say I measure my resting heart rate to be 60 and calculate my max heart rate by age and I’m 50 (max heart rate is 220-age). Then my resting is 60 and my max is 170 (220-50). This means my HRR is 110 (170-60). This is the number of heart beats I can play with… I can’t go below 60 and I can’t go above 170. The Karvonen Method

10 Measuring Intensity ▪ Now I simple apply my training percentages for each of the training zones.
