work out base on heart rate

wonderfull sw for indoor cycling.
It would be better if there is also the possibility to manage the workouts also with zones built base on the % of HR. (e.g 10 min @ 80% or at X/Y bpm)
while you are training it's also useful to see a graph where the curve of the HR is shown in a predetermined zone (e.g 5). with the Power
Lot of coaches use to build workout plans based on cadence and HR % not only with power meter
Thank you

I was hoping that Adam would reply to this.

I would like to see similar functionality built in - workouts based on a target cadence. But why stop there; why not workouts built on any of the metrics available in PeriPedal where it is practical?

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I will keep these in mind for future releases!

IMO - seems retro (ie so 80s-90s) to train with HR targets IF you have Power Metrics available - HR lags in response to load therefore does not reflect where your physiological staus is - useful only if doing steady state workouts such as SST not short intervals - That's why HR has been largely superseded by training & racing with a power meter. Since PP can evaluate Power either in real time with a smart Trainer or via algorithm for known trainer - training with Power targets is way superior.

Cadence targets would be useful as this is a technical drill component in the workout.

Make sense becasue HR is an input and Power the real output....just to have an additional metrics to study paired with power after a workout...
