Recommended Posts

I have a question that you might be able to shed light on. I am 42, 72kg, 1.68m. according

my HRM my max is 188bpm. resting hr is 51bpm

during rides i am able to ride at 90% with ease. my OFM time was 3h10 at a ave of 90%

according to what i have read i should not ride in this zone to often.

but to maitain a speed of 23km/h offroad or 30km/h road i must ride at his rate.

 

My question (i hope i gave enough detail) why is my hr rate so high compared to others

around me and the general information out there.

 

If ride at 70% hr I must ride 15km/h or less

this surely is too slow

 

Hi,

 

Sorry for only coming back to you now. Was on holiday for a bit!

 

It's really not uncommon to ride at 90% of your max in a race. It means your body is well

conditioned because it can function anaerobically (without oxygen) for a long time. My friends

and I all ride a race at 85-94/5% of our MHR.

 

But it is important that you condition your body correctly with the right amounts of low, medium

and high intensity training in order for it to maintain such a high MHR without hurting your heart,

lungs and muscles. If you always train at 70%, then it's not a good idea to push yourself to a 90%

average on a race. Hope this makes sense!

 

Contact me if you have any other questions!

I am starting week 2 of my program and I am loving it!! One of my favourite things is that I can do the interval sessions on my idt and I dont get bored. I cant wait to get out on the dirt on Saturday and see the impact of just 2 weeks of training has had. :clap:

 

Bring on Sani2C cause I think I may just be fit enough for it thanks to the coach. :thumbup:

Wait until you get to the end of 6 weeks, you're going to be blown away by the results!:clap: I'm currently on week 10 of my program and the results have been absolutely amazing! Almost every week it feels as if I'm peaking but it's a 'mini-peak' because the next week I feel stronger, really looking forward to peaking in a big race :clap: :clap:

 

Thanx Maryke, keep up the good work

Ok, now I am even more encouraged! Thanks Saudiq.

 

Yesterday I couldnt do my scheduled workout so I did it this morning and I was blown away by the massive improvement to a similar workout from last week. 12mins off last week's time!! :clap:

 

For those of you who want a coach who is not going to kill you, make workouts fun and who will help you achieve your goals: this is the coach to go with. :thumbup:
