I've personally found these work much better at keeping up my progress and keeping down overtraining than going by feel.
Except zones based on MHR are almost as "grossly estimated" sometimes as the 220-age. Zones based on LTHR have proven to be a more valid relation to perceived exertion than the max HR zones, at least for me.
