work out base on heart rate

Postby guapo73 » Sat Oct 18, 2014 1:40 pm

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?

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staus is - useful only if doing steady state workouts such as SST not short intervals - That's why HR has been largely superseded by training & racing with a power meter.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...
