RE: Can someone explain Heart Rate etc?
I have just bought a heart-ratemonitor, and have discovered somthing interesting.
Ive spen the last 9 weeks cutting and have dropped BF by 5%.
Up until now I have not used a heart rate monitor, but today I realised I was exceeding my target zone by quite a bit!!
Ive just realised that Ive been spending an average of 20mins at about 165bpm- 175bpm!!!
My target zone is about 140bpm
I have found out today that I can easily achieve this by power walking, and can extend the sessions easily to 40mins.
What Im asking is, is waht im doing now more beneficial?? (im guessing it is)
Is it better to spend 40 mins in the 'zone', regardless of whether im walking, running, hopping, skipping.......... or what ever????
Thanks for help, and my advice to dodgyfeas would be to by a monitor! (the one I bought is only about 40quid out of Argos!!)
