Re: Training styles

Also, and please correct me if I'm wrong, heart rate is also a factor in overall body cooling. So it's also going to be a function of ambient temperature. It would make sense that swimmer's max heart rates would be lower due to their environment. Bicycling would be lower than running due to higher convection-based cooling.

Yes I believe you are correct. I believe horizontal body position is also important in swimming as is water pressure (although slight).

Re: Training styles

Update on heart rate training. I have hooked up my monitor again.

Most of the workouts I am 160-180 ending. I see that as a good sign. 2 or 3 years ago I was comfortable in the 164-167 range.

The metcon's that I have been doing have been 20 min.

I am 1 week shy of 50 and my pulse is 180. I should do a proper max effort for pulse. I am sure that is a day to day thing just like resting heart rate.

I would like to be a little more scientific because near 7 years into X fit it can get a little boring and one needs some stimulation.
