Help calculating HR zones?

    I’m 2 weeks into the transition period of my plan from Training for the New Alpinism.

    Should I be factoring in heart rate zones from ALL the training sessions or just the specific aerobic sessions when calculating percentage spent in zone 1, 2 etc?

    Hi Rob,
    Yes, only for aerobic sessions, whatever form they take. HR is not a good measure of effort expended/stress on the body for strength training, climbing sessions, and other non-aerobic activities. For those, if you’re using Training Peaks to track your training, you want to estimate a TSS.

    Here’s an article that might be useful:

    Hi Jane, thanks for the info!

    I’ll take a look at Training Peaks too.

    Cheers 🙂
