I started road cycling about 6 months ago after years as a MTBer. About the same time I also started wearing a HRM and training more seriously. In most of the posts/discussions I see about max HR people seem to be at or above the standard formula calculations of what their max HR should be (220-age, etc), but the highest I have been able to get my HR is 167 bpm. No matter what I do, pushing as hard as I can, on the road or on the trainer, following all of the standard field test methods, or just all out riding - I've never seen a higher number. I know the formulas are generalized for the whole population, but at 32 years old I am so far below norm that it makes me wonder what is going on. Should I be reading anything in to this low max? Am I just a wimp?
