    Hello FUA’s
    We will be discussing Strength Training for Women.

    Joint/Injury prevention

    Bone density/Tendon and ligament strength

    Sport performance – Metabolic efficiency – increased capilarization of muscle tissue. Movement economy.

    Confidence – do a pull up, generally just be able to move and lift things easily.

    Fat Loss – muscle burns more calories than fat, increased RMR.

    If you have any questions you’d like covered and can’t amke the zoom list them here and we will make sure to cover them.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
    Happy Training ( :

    Topic request (and I feel dumb asking): for the aerobic days, training peaks references “RPE”, which I’m unfamiliar with. I looked up what 5-6 RPE is, and I definitely get over my aerobic threshold HR if I run at 5-6.

    Is the idea to do the exercise (ex 30min run after warmup) as close to the zone 2 threshold you can get without surpassing it? I’m a little hazy on what I’m actually aiming for. How closely should I be watching my HR while I’m running? Is it okay if I’m over for a couple minutes total, or does that end up being quite impactful?

    Hello Mia,

    Carolyn and I covered RPE in the last zoom. I am happy to go over it again. RPE is “Rate or Perceived Exertion” It is a tool Training Peaks uses, for the most part you can ignore it. Focus on your HR rather than these numbers.

    The warm up is included in that 30minutes and your goal is do that 30min run or hike below your Aerobic Threshold. If it gets to it or a little above slow down a little. If you are going way over for more than 1/3 of you run then it becomes impactful but if it bounces up here and there that is totally okay. Don’t stress yourself over being always below we know life happens 🙂

    Hi Mia,
    Let me answer that here. We went over this concept in our April 11th zoom call as well so if you’d like here more about this revisit that zoom ( :

    For many athletes RPE – Rate of Perceived Exertion is not a great indicator of effort. Hence why we recommend HR Monitor watches and chest straps. Eventually you’ll get a feel for what being truly aerobic feels like.

    And as for aerobic zone two training days we want you to stay below your aerobic threshold, it is a threshold. So ideally after warm up spend time with you HR below that number. Let’s say its 145, and your zone 2 is 131-145 spend your time with your HR fluctuating in that zone, warm up should be high zone one / low zone two.
    If you go over here and there that’s ok too, just slow it down.

    I hope this helps.

    I apologize – I’m looking for the link to previous zoom discussions. Specifically Tuesday April 26, 2022. I missed it live and would like to catch up on the discussion. Where can I find the link? Or please share in this thread.
    Thanks and have a terrific start to the week.
