A 30-year-old cyclist has a maximum heart rate of 190 beats per minute, and thus an average heart rate between 95 and 133 beats per minute when cycling at a moderate pace. At a vigorous pace, the same person's heart rate is between 133 and 162 beats per minute.
Just so, what is the threshold heart rate?
Threshold heart rate is a maximum heart rate you can sustain over a longer period of time, such as from 10 to 60 plus minutes depending on ability, and level of aerobic fitness. Threshold heart rate is also related to the maximum power, or effort you can sustain for the same period of time.
What is threshold in cycling?
Lactate threshold (LT) is the primary area of developmental focus for competitive cyclists. It is the best predictor of race performance for many cycling events. Unlike aerobic capacity (i.e., VO2 max), lactate threshold is also highly trainable, which is one of the reasons training zones are often based on LT.
What is a lactate threshold heart rate?
Lactate threshold is the exercise intensity at which lactate (lactic acid) starts to accumulate in the bloodstream. In running, it is the estimated level of effort or pace. For average runners, the lactate threshold often occurs well below 90% of maximum heart rate.
