Heart Rate Monitors – Setting up your workout

Heart Rate Monitors – Setting up your workout

Since your maximum heart rate won’t change much with age if you continue to be fit, you won’t ever have to readjust your
zones ‐ they are yours for a lifetime.

Start Your Heart Zone Training System

You are ready.

You have everything you need to start your program:

a heart rate monitor, a maximum heart rate, and your three zones.

You can go out today and start exercising. Keep track of how many minutes you train in each zone.

If you are just beginning, start with 100% of your workout time in the Healthy Heart Zone. Stay in this zone for at least 2 to 4 weeks.

As the Healthy Heart Zone becomes easy and you are ready for the challenge, try spending 10%‐25% of your total training
time in zone two.

Example: If you are training four days a week for 20 minutes in the Healthy Heart zone, once a week put the upper and
lower limits for the Fitness Zone in your monitor and train there.

That would be three days in the Healthy Heart Zone and

one day ﴾that’s 25%﴿ in the Fitness Zone. It’s simple.

Slowly increase the amount of time that you spend in the Fitness Zone until

You are spending all of your time in the Fitness Zone, then it will be time to try a few minutes in the Performance Zone.
