What has my height got to do with HR? I have lost weight, and maintained my weight, by using this HR zone too.Citroen wrote: ↑July 21st, 2020, 6:45 amThat's not a good comparison, you're 6'4" (so you gain with drive length) and not overweight.Dangerscouse wrote: ↑July 21st, 2020, 5:21 amIf your target is weight loss 130ish is a great target for most of your sessions but I'd still advise that you do some harder distances too that push your HR to circa 90-95% eg 4 x 8 mins, two mins rest and a 90% HR target to dictate the pace.lostdog54 wrote: ↑July 20th, 2020, 4:54 pmhttps://www.freespiritsrowing.com/forum ... calculator
With a max of 178 and a resting rate of 55 (based on what my garmin watch tells me every day) that calculator shows my UT2 range to be 123-141. I just try to keep it around 130 ish so if I happen to get a little higher, I'm still within the range.
Am I doing that incorrectly, or should I be targeting higher?
My max HR is similar, and RHR is a bit less, and I use 125-130 as my standard HR target for my longer distances
Why would a higher HR zone be better if he wants to lose weight? The OP has stated that weight loss is his biggest priority. Imo all this does is leaves you under recovered, doing less distance, less of the time and impacts on confidence as you're constantly chasing improved times but your lack of recovery is subtly preventing that.
