Heart Rate Calculations
 
Hi!!
As my heart rate gets stronger the resting pulse should lower. Is there any way to achieve 90% of MHR?

Regards
Charlotte

Try harder.

You might post this question in Training and Nutrition. But Laggard's right: go harder.

Resting HR will only go so low. Currently assumed to be a limit set by genetics.

It's possible to get 100% of HRmax. I do it all the time when trying to follow the wheel of a climber up a hill longer than 200-yards.

I got mine on the uphill sprint of Cherry Pie this February. And all for a $10 bike shop prime. (Totally worth it.)

don't feel bad - change yards to feet and that's my fitness level right now!

First, make sure you know what MHR is with a real test.

Is this so true! Latch on to a masher and see what happens if you try to stay with him. :thumb:
