Looking for MHR vs. Age data

I'm looking for data of MHR vs. age. Trying to (informally) confirm that those who maintain fitness see less of a drop in MHR as they age compared to sedentary folks. Of particular interest would be anyone who took a hiatus from riding (became sedentary) for some years, then resumed riding and has long term data. Those who have been riding for many years and have tracked their MHR will be my new best friends. The more data the better.

Thanks!

Go to www.heartzones.com They have a number of test to determine MHR, which they say doesn't change with age, but with fitness.

LOL

I don't need to test, I need data from people who have. One of the people who is interested in seeing the data is Sally Edwards, who founded heartzones.

Well if it helps... my sports specific MHR to cycling has stayed at 198 bpm since I've been 18. I'm now 42. I would consider myself to be of slightly better than average fitness. I exercise about twice a week right now. Has been 6 times a week to 0 times a week in that 24 year period.

BTW, I just finished her book Heart Rate Monitor Guidebook.

Would you mind posting this information to the Training and Nutrition forum under the same thread there? There is a debate starting on this.

MHR is worthless... you need to rely on LT.

I think to disregard either one completely is not a good idea.
