WHAT IS HEART RATE TRAINING?
Believe it or not, there is such thing as
training ‘too much too fast’ which over time will lead to a greater chance of
injury and serious fatigue.
When training your heart, it is recommended
that in most cases you want to be between 65-85% of your maximum heart rate.
This is divided into different ‘zones’ ranging from Zone 1 being ‘The Easy
Zone’ to Zone 5 being ‘The Vigorous Zone’. To maintain a steady workout you
should aim towards reaching Zone 3, meaning 70-79% of your max heart rate is
targeted. You can calculate your max heart rate by subtracting your age by 220.
Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
Partaking in HIIT is all about increasing
your heart rate in a short amount of time to receive the greatest benefit. By
using extreme bursts of energy and recovering accordingly, this will allow you
to burn calories FAST to support fat loss in sessions that may only take up to 30
minutes. An example of HIIT would be running on a treadmill at your max speed
for 20 seconds, followed by a 40 second walk.
Your Fat-Burning Zone
Burning more calories may not necessarily
mean you are burning more fat. So how do you ensure the calories burned are fat
calories? The higher the intensity of your work out means that short-term
stores of carbs and sugar are burnt, for example the calories absorbed from
your last meal. Lower intensity fitness activities over a long period of time,
known as ‘targeted fat-burning’ will assist in getting the fat-burning results
you need and want from those stubborn areas.
of Fat-Burning Activities For Gym Enthusiasts:

week at a heart rate up to79% of your max heart rate

Whether you are new to fitness activities
or familiar with physical training, using heart rate training to key into your
optimal fat-burning zone will create those results you desire.
