232: Fitter, Stronger—Faster: Use Your Heart

Time Block H - Saturday, 4:00-5:30pm
Session Format: Workshop

We all know that heart rate monitoring has been a very effective tool for measuring cardiovascular strength and endurance. Most trainers, however, have not considered that heart rate monitoring can provide objective feedback for strength training as well! It’s not enough for trainers to just assign sets and reps anymore. Join us for an enlightening session on how you can use heart rate monitoring to design strength training programs and individualize them to optimize exercise duration and intensity, as well as recovery.
