DIS­AD­VAN­TAGES TO US­ING HEART RATE

Australian Mountain Bike - - Fitness -

- Heart rate is not as use­ful for short, in­tense in­ter­vals due to ‘car­diac lag’. Ba­si­cally this means when you lift in­ten­sity, it takes a while for the heart rate to climb to that level. - Daily heart rate val­ues can change quite a lot and are de­pen­dent on weather con­di­tions, your level of fa­tigue, age, al­ti­tude, diet, hy­dra­tion etc. - Heart rate is not a di­rect mea­sure of your per­for­mance.
