Run and Become are teaming up with Polar to offer a ‘heart rate training session’ in St James’s Park using the M430 Polar watch.
Sports training is based on three variables: frequency, duration and workout intensity. Frequency is easy to understand: it’s how many times you exercise per period of time. Duration is simple too: it’s how long you exercise at a time, usually counted in minutes.
Defining workout intensity, however, is a bit more complicated – and that’s where the heart rate zones come in. Your heart rate is one of the best indicators of how hard your body is working during a workout. Heart rate zones are closely linked to your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds. During this training session, using the Polar M340 watch, we will cover the 5 heart rate zones.
This event will start with a short seminar by Tom Craggs, one of the UK's most in demand young coaches, sharing training techniques specifically targeted towards the 5 different heart rate zones. This will be followed by a brief lesson on how to use the M430 Polar watch. Then Tom will lead everyone out to St James’s Park for a one hour interval training session.
