HR Zone Factors

HR Zone Factors

Postby the5krunner » Mon Dec 02, 2013 6:08 pm

I have factors that work perfectly for me.

When I apply the factors to some of the people I am training the results look 'a bit' wrong. (I apply my factors to their Friel Zones)

When I use the auto mode it looks even more wrong.

My questions is specifically about factors: Which factors do you use?

Here are my factors based on LTHR/Friel type zones. NOTE THAT I AM NOT SAYING THESE ARE CORRECT...JUST THAT THEY WORK FOR ME IN A WAY THAT I FIND USEFUL.

Factors in brackets

r0 Rest 0-115 (0)
r1 Recovery 115-148 (1.2)
r2 Extensive Endurance 148-158 (1.3)
r3 Intensive Endurance 158-167 (1.4)
r4 Sub-Threshold 167-174 (2.1) 174 = LTHR
r5a Super Threshold 174-178 (2.6)
r5b Anaerobic Capacity 178-185 (3.1)
r5c Power 185-193 (3.5)
rHRMax 193-infinity (3.7)

Hi there, I realize this is an old post but I've been trying to find out information on how to tweak the zone factors in the plugin, and hopefully your still reading these forums :D
I also use Friel-based zones for running, but I only have 5 zones (I group 5abc into one Zone). This is from Friel's HR Training book (not any of his Bible books).

My questions:
- how did you figure out your 9 HR zones? Was it trial and error or do you have a reference I can look up?
- similar questions for your Zone factors - did you get these by trial and error, or did you use a formula?

thanks in advance!

Edit:
here are my Zones for running and the factors calculated by the TL plugin. I'm not a fan of using 0 for Zone 1 but I'm not sure the "best" way to tweak this.


Zone 1 - 0 to 149 - factor 0
Zone 2 - 149 to 159 - factor 1.94
Zone 3 - 159 to 168 - factor 2.51
Zone 4 - 168 to 175 - factor 3.05
Zone 5 - 175 to infinity - factor 3.97

my HRmax = 195
