General discussions about getting and staying fit that don't relate directly to your indoor rower

exercise intensity / heart rate - link to article

Postby Sean Seamus » August 24th, 2006, 11:46 pm

can any one help me please ?
About 4 -5 weeks ago I came across a reply which included a link to an article about exercising at moderate levels, measured by heart rate.

A key aspect discussed had to do with how much of the population is so unfit that the "220 - age = maximum HR" gives wildly excessive values for most adults; and went on to discuss the negative implications of high HR's for the general population. It was a report based on a medical study (I think).

Anyhow, it fits in wonderfully with a discussion I am having, and I am danged if I can find it now.

In the old days I'd've merely dug through my reading piles 5 - 6 weeks down ! Thanks for helping if you can.

It may have been one on www.freearticles.com.

That article was mainly about those below top fitness doing too strenuous cardio, and that being bad for them. Does that sound familiar ?

It also indicated that folks in top condition were not getting the cardiac benefits they expected, since they were at lower cardiac stress than they thought they were.

But the study only covered about 2 dozen people in a broad age range.

thank to both of you, alas, neither is the article in question

it was about excessive effort, especially for average or less fit individuals, and maybe about oxidants, or the effect of lactic acid . . .
