Is it typical to see max HR increase like this? Should I adjust my training zones accordingly?
Who knows? But off hand, what ever training you are doing now is most likely an excellent program if you are achieving these heart rates during dedicated workouts.
My own experience suggests that your "new" MaxHR is possibly a fluke as a result of drugs, or supra-normal amount rest and optimal nutrition or hydration.
In any case, MHR is not
the only factor of overall conditioning. Unless you have a way of tying your HR to performance, much of this is meaningless.
Low long can you maintain an HR of 185? Has your ability to maintain high HRs grown longer?
