Training zones are a way to structure and monitor the intensity of your physical activity in order to help you achieve specific fitness goals. By dividing your workout into different intensity zones, you can ensure that you are targeting specific energy systems and physiological adaptations. There are several different ways to define training zones, but a common method is to use heart rate as the primary indicator of intensity.
Check out our video where we breakdown the benefits of training zones.
Some of the benefits of training zones include:
Improved Cardiovascular Fitness
By working at different intensities, you can target different energy systems and improve your overall cardiovascular fitness.
By training at lower intensities, you can improve your endurance and ability to sustain activity over a longer period of time.
Increased Power and Speed
By training at higher intensities, you can improve your power and speed, which can be beneficial for athletes and those who want to improve their performance in sports or other physical activities.
