    I'm sorry for n00bing this thread up, but how does one establish what heart rate to work at?

    Also, are you measuring your heart rate via the treadmills onboard system?

    Not noobing at all, mate. I like this particular HR calculator.

    I have a Polar Heart Rate Strap that I use that transmits my HR to the treadmill. A cheap watch and HR strap cost me 50 bucks US.

    This is a nice HR calculator too. Uses Karvonen formula.

    All right, thank you ^^

    I'm constantly told about the neseccity of measuring heart rate and tailoring exercise to suit for maximum effecys, however I've yet to actually DO something about it, this will serve as a good start.

    Nice little calculator. My high 159, low 133. I normally try to hold my HR at/around 160 on my long cardio days, with it going up to 170-175 on some of the faster segments of the run.

Do it in a similiar format as what you are already doing, but with the GPP drills you will be able to work some overall body fitness into your program, don't really need to go to the gym yet, and less risk of burnout because your work other muscle groups and you should still see the weight loss gains.

    I try to do some GPP on and off during the week. I started off the month doing pullups and dips before each cardio session. I tailored them off to stay with the cardio intensity.

    But you make sense, I'll put GPP more on the forefront first, rather jumping back into heavy lifting again.

    Thanks man!

    Um, GPP?

    Anyway, I did standard HIIT top get ready for several PATs. It definitely worked in a short period of time to allow me to make the runs I needed to do. But I have never done it according to heart rate. One thing though...

    As oppossed to a standard H.I.I.T format, where I go all out for 30 seconds, rest 30 seconds, and do it 6 or so more times.
    For standard HIIT those seem to be waaaay too short intervals. From what I've read (and what worked for me) what is generally recommended is rest intervals of 2 minutes and high intensity intervals of 1 minute. FWIW. It's probably one of those things where you get a different answer depending on who you ask. Meh.

    It gets worse Matt... The tabata protocol is 20 seconds all out, 10 seconds rest, as one set. http://www.findarticles.com/p/articl...20/ai_n6011850

    GPP is General Physical Preparation, think boot camp type excercises.

    Hi Anthony, do you do any roadwork? I found that interval training on a treadmill was very effective but I hit a point where I couldn't improve my stamina any further until I started doing some long distance road work as well.

    I just started back up with cardio this past month. Roadwork is definately in the cards in the future. I have a long ways before I hit that ceiling. :)
