I've recently bought a Polar HRM and very nice it is too. However I am confused by various training levels out there!
Max and resting heart rates no problem.
The hrm measures "true" percentages of a max heart rate, yet in the booklet that came with it (Written by Ken Maclaren) it instructs you to obtain your "range" combined with a formula to work out your percentage levels. This is also true of the book "Heart Rate training for the compleat idiot" which seems to get recommended alot on these forums.Ideas or recommendations please? at present I'm just using the "basic" method at the moment as this seems to be the only one that will work with the percentage function on my hrm.Any help appreciated!
