Aerobic Training Zone Success
copyright 2006 by Greg Landry, M.S.





You put a lot of time and effort into your exercise program, so it only makes sense that you should try to get the most out of it. One way to maximize the results you get from your aerobic exercise is to be sure that you're exercising within your "aerobic training zone"; also called your "target heart rate range."

Your heart rate is your body's speedometer. It gives you an indication of how fast your body's "motor" is running. This is commonly referred to as exercise intensity. Exercising at the right intensity can help to assure that you're getting all the benefits that you can get from your aerobic exercise. Your heart rate can be easily measured by feeling the pulsations of the blood moving through the artery near the outside of your wrist. However, that can be a little more difficult while your exercising.

An inexpensive heart rate monitor can make it very easy to see your heart rate quickly and easily while you're exercising. It can also be motivational. The most accurate types use a strap that goes around the lower part of your chest. Electrodes in that strap detect the electrical signal your heart gives off every time it beats. Then, with every beat of your heart, the electrodes in the strap send a signal to a special wrist watch that will display your heart rate in beats per minute. So, you can simply glance at the watch to see what your heart rate is at any given moment.

This will help you to get the most benefit from the exercise you do.
