First and foremost, the methods we use revolve around blood lactate concentration training theories; utilizing a lactate threshold step-test to set training zones and intensities. ?By utilizing this method, we are able to accurately set each individual zone based on your metabolism and energy production, rather than assuming that your training zones are a set percentage of your threshold.
Most coaches at this day in age will insist or at least highly recommend working only with a power meter; which is not an inappropriate thought. ?However, by utilizing a fitness test as specific and accurate as lactate threshold, we are able to build training zones that are equally as accurate with either heart rate or power. ?At the end of the day, power does have its advantages, but truth be told, we can accomplish most of your fitness gains by utilizing a heart rate monitor.
