Whether you are just starting a fitness program or are an experienced athlete, you can greatly benefit from paying attention to your heart rate during exercise. Heart rate serves as a window into the body, giving you minute-to-minute feedback on your physical condition based on all the factors affecting it—exercise intensity, diet, temperature, humidity, altitude, fatigue, and more.
Total Heart Rate Training explains:

•Heart function during exercise
•How heart rate monitors work
•Simple ways to use a heart rate monitor
•Advanced heart rate training techniques

With Total Heart Rate Training, you can design a personalized program that practically guarantees you’ll achieve your fitness goals. You’ll be able to determine the precise and optimal heart rate for each day’s workout by using your heart rate monitor to keep you on target. It’s like having a personal trainer telling you when to go harder and when to back off.
This book also shows how powermeters and accelerometers enable you to compare your body’s input, as measured by heart rate, with its output-power or pace. It’s a combination that allows you to train at your peak for that competitive edge.
