Maximum, Threshold, Aerobic

With the Christmas pudding well packed in and the New Years Resolutions looming, invariably considerations of exercise and diet will start most lists. To help well intended programmes on their way, I’ve found this application of the 70-20-10 break down applied to ‘Training Zones’ at Sweat Science

  • 70% of training is in the ‘Aerobic Zone’ (heart rate 80-90% of max, surges lasting 3-10 minutes)
  • 20% of training is in the ‘Threshold Zone’
  • 10% of training is in the ‘Maximum Zone’ (heart rate above 90% of max, surges lasting 30 seconds to 3 minutes)
