Heart rate zones in details

Rouvy works with 7 heart rate zones. We would like to describe little more in detail how it works.

Heart rate monitors are a great way to measure your effort during a workout. Heart rate zone training is a systematic way of leveraging these measurements to pace yourself, track your improvement and get the most out of each workout. We'll help you find the right intensity levels by calculating your seven heart rate zones.

How does it work in Rouvy?

Heart rate is measured in beats per minute (BPM) and reflects how hard your body is working. To find your heart rate zones, we must first know your maximum heart rate (MHR). If you don't know your MHR, you can get an initial estimate with equation 208 - (0.7 x age). Based on the age in your profile, we'll crunch the numbers to establish your five training zones. Go to Settings if you need to enter your birthday. If you already know your MHR, you can enter it directly.

We used a method by BCF/ABCC/WCPP revised 7. HR Zones from maxHR: 

1. Recovery <60%

2. Fat burning 60% - 65%

3. Basic Endurance 65% - 75%

4. Aerobic Endurance 75% - 82%

5. Road Race 82% - 89%

6. Speed Training 89% - 94%

7. Anaerobic Sprint 94% - 100%
