Fellow cyclists, now that the new year is under way, what are your cycling goals?
I am on the email distribution list of many of the area bike shops. This results in a lot of information being shared. Recently, I received the December 2012 monthly newsletter from Blue Sky Bicycles featuring their Fitness Testing. I found it a worthwhile read with something for every cyclist. In particular, I enjoyed reading about Exercise Target Heart Rate Zones. All of us have one. Do you know yours?
We all want to make the most of our time. That is why heart rate training is so important. Each of
us has unique Target Heart Rate Zones. Every zone determines the fuel our body prefers. Lower intensity zones primarily burn fat as a fuel, while the higher zones consume carbohydrates. This will impact the foods you eat and the foods you crave. Those heart rate charts on the walls are averages...you are not average.
Intelligent Fitness believes in your uniqueness. We will help you find your Target Heart Rate Zones, to ensure you are making the most of your workout time, which helps you to achieve your goals.
