5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heart rate monitors in plain English--for triathletes too 11 avril 2011
Par Vista Beasley - Publié sur
This is one of those books that I wish, wish, wish I could have read sooner. Now I understand more fully how I could have used a heart rate monitor to detect and prevent overtraining injuries. It doesn't just say 'rest is important'; it explains why and then actually teaches how to use a heart rate monitor to measure 'rest'. As a distance runner entering the cycling and swimming sports, I could have used the details this book gives about applying heart rate zones to all three disciplines. As a coach, I can tell who is working too hard, and who isn't working as hard as they think they are, and the book describes exactly how the heart rates should/shouldn't shift in each part of each workout in each sport. The book also addresses the variations. Every time I've worked with athletes the first time, they always seem to protest the low heart rate ranges used early on in training, but this book really helps with adjusting and fine-tuning the zones, and shows how to measure and handle the variations caused by factors such as cardiac creep and dehydration; I can adjust my coaching accordingly, specific to that athlete on that day. Plus, I see now how to use the different heart rates (maximum, resting and anaerobic threshold) along with the VO2 max specific to each person I coach. I underlined and dog-eared the sections that explained tests athletes in each sport can use to calculate these heart rates and VO2 maxes, especially for those who don't have access to lab equipment or funds or Ph.ds. I liked that the authors explained the science behind the monitors without using the too-formal, dense tone of a textbook yet not dumbing it down excessively. While they explained the concepts very well, I was excited to get actual workouts with the heart rates built in for a range of fitness levels and goals in each sport. I'm looking forward to stealing--I mean, following--the training programs and using what I have learned here. It makes all my training before seem relatively primitive. As the book says, "Anyone can make an athlete tired, but not everyone can make him better."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learning to love your toy 23 mars 2011
Par Roadrunner Press - Publié sur
Walk into any running store lately, and you see as many "gadgets" as shoes and apparel: global positioning watches, music-players, heart rate monitors, many features sometimes combined in a single device. We runners love our toys. If I had to pick the one device that I consider most useful for training, it would be that last one, the heart rate monitor.

Recently, I did a survey among runners visiting my bulletin boards, asking: "Why use a heart monitor?" Most popular (checked by 32% of respondents) was: "It helps me analyze my training." But the one I liked the most was because heart monitors are "fun." While researching the first edition of my best-selling Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide, I used a monitor to do what coaches often recommend, "Listen to your body." I watched the numbers both during workouts and analyzed body responses afterwards.

But I was flying somewhat blind and now runners have a resource to teach them all they need to know about monitors, a slender book logically titled Heart Monitor Training, co-authored by Roy Benson and Declan Connolly: They write: "The beauty of heart rate training is that it relies on a system (your cardiovascular system) that reflects your overall state of stress 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It reflects when you're tired, overtrained, sick, cold, or hot and therefore can guide you in making changes to your plan. More important from an exercise point of view, it provides immediate and consistent feedback about your stress level."

Before you proceed to your running store to purchase your new gadget, a couple of caveats: The data you receive from any monitor is only as good as your ability to interpret that data. In using a heart monitor during marathons, I discovered the numbers made sense only until the point I hit the wall. My heart was ticking along, but not the rest of my body. As I slowed, my heart rate slowed to well below goal rate--except I was powerless to do anything about it.

Most important, as Benson and Connolly clearly state, the formulas experts often offer for predicting your maximum heart rate do not work for everybody. "It's okay to start with a formula," says Benson, "but common sense should immediately overrule numbers that cause you to run too slow or too fast compared to effort level." The best way to determine maximum heart rate is a stress test under the supervision of a knowledgeable cardiologist or exercise scientist.

Having said all that, Heart Rate Training certainly will help make you a better runner.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very clear and concise book on heart rate training 11 octobre 2011
Par J. Mijares - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Prior to this book, the one book on heart rate training that I always referred to was Heart Monitor Training for the Compleat Idiot by John L. Parker. It was a brilliant book that used layman's terms to talk about the concepts involved with heart rate monitor training, but it focused mostly on running.

Now this book expands on some of the concepts of training zones and glycogen production and storage, and provides sample training programs (including Fartlek) that one can use for their training. I'm primarily a runner, but will often swim or cycle for fun and also like to use the rowing machine on occasion. Some of the programs for running are helpful for me in tweaking some of my zones so that I'm not over-doing it on most days.

Kudos to the authors too for not steering readers to one particular brand of heart rate monitor. A decade ago, consumers had very few choices in heart rate monitors (Polar), but today there are quite a few choices out there (Polar, Garmin, Suunto, etc), many of which allow you to program the training sessions in this book directly in to the watch.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Bible for Heart Rate Training! 31 mai 2011
Par Roger - Publié sur
Coach Benson's knowledge and experience over the past 40 years speaks for Itself. He has been at the forefront of distance running training from his time coaching both the revered and highly successful Florida Track Club in the 70's up through his champion high school teams in Atlanta in the 90's and 00's. Coach has always been known for a scientific approach to coaching and has led the trend of heart rate monitor training for more than 20 years so is well-qualified to write this updated text. Dr. Connally, while younger and less experienced than Benson, has an equally scientific view and approach to training. Together in this latest publication, the authors have achieved a good balance and combination of "how-to" and "why". Even the complicated physiological energy systems are succinctly and clearly explained, which adds to the readers understanding of why the proposed training programs will be successful. The chapters on a variety of endurance sports expands the readership beyond runners. And runners are provided with a training specificity application for cross-training activities. While I have followed Coach Benson's work and writing on training for many years, the new text and the addition of Dr. Connally, provide a fresh take sure to precisely assist with carefully planned training. "Heart Rate Training" should be a must read for coaches and athletes alike. Well done!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book all-around. 22 septembre 2013

I've been using the training plans for running in this book for almost a year now, and I'm very pleased with the results, which is what I think matters most when you buy any sort of how-to guide. I bought this book after looking for a more healthy and motivating way to train for a third half marathon. I had tried a plan that just gave me weekly distances, but I wasn't fairing well since I had no clue about what intensities/pace/recovery to utilize when I was running these miles, and so I had some overuse injuries and much frustration. As many probably know, the wrong training plan can really ruin a person's love of a sport, so I'm glad I got this book that told me how to train properly. Now, I am seeing specific results in my running in terms of speed, endurance, and stamina using the level 2 and 3 training plans in this book. I feel more excited and motivated because I feel more in control (I know what my goal is for each run and why I'm exercising at a certain intensity on one day but not the next). Note: this book covers heart rate training, too, for sports like cycling, walking, etc., but I've only been focusing on the running parts. I have recommended this book to friends because it has helped me to stop overtraining which I was doing due to over-ambition and a plain old, "school-of-hard-knocks" approach to running which I've been doing since my college days. If you want to increase your knowledge of proper heart rate training, buy this, give it a real shot before you give up, and if something doesn't feel right with your training plan, re-read the chapters (they can be very technical but do start to make sense as you put his methods into practice) and make sure you have picked the right plan for your level of fitness (he offers 3 levels-beginner-to-advanced), and have calculated your target heart rate zones correctly which tripped me up the first time that I tried his level-2, half-marathon program. Results: I've lost 24 pounds and counting in 8 months! I've cut 13 minutes off my half marathon time, and I feel a lot leaner, happier, and confident in what I'm doing when I go out for a run and exercise in general. Oh yes, I'm also now training for two marathons and know I can finish, because I'm in better shape now. Only downside is that you have to buy a heart rate monitor watch. Don't go cheap on this, and get one with a cheststrap (imo).
