Webinar: Using Heart Rate Feedback in Training and On Race Day


(0 votes)

Topic: Using Heart Rate Feedback in Training and On Race Day

Jesse Kropelnicki leads the discussion on one of QT2's most valuable training and racing concepts: Heart Rate Monitoring. Heart rate feedback plays a critical role in training and pacing across all race distances, especially the marathon, 70.3, and Ironman. Heart rate-based training and racing protocols take a great deal into consideration, and provide a very detailed assessment for an individual athlete’s personal needs. Learn how QT2 has successfully trained and paced thousands of athletes world-wide, from beginner to professional, using the techniques covered within this webinar.  Learn how to build effective heart rate based training and racing protocols, why heart rate goes up in climatic heat, and how using it can assist in GI distress prevention on race day.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

·  Calculate proper heart rate training zones

·  Adjust heart rate in training based on external variables

·  Use heart rate to judge the progress you are making in training (and how it can adjust training stress for you)

·  Pace the perfect race on race day using heart rate metrics

·  Discover, define and implement the “magic bullet” for long course racing: heart rate based pacing.
