Reply To: Bike Baseline/Threshold Testing

Justin – another thing to keep in mind.. you dont want to worry about your HR when swimming, it wont be accurate. This is why the swim baseline test is set to find our pace time per 100m, and not our HR threshold.

Hope I explained that correctly 🙂

Blur from the Athlete Guide “<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Because most swim workouts are done in a fixed length pool and it’s difficult to wear a heart rate monitor strap while swimming, swimming training zones are best based off of your 100 yard (or meter) pace time.”</span>
