    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

    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.
