      Lake Tahoe Criterion First place overall, Surfski/K1 Course Time = ? Race Speed = 7.3 mph average and 10.47 mph maximum. Race HR = 166 average and 177 maximum. 5.0 TE! Altitude = 6225' ASL This year I monitored my HR more than ever. I thought that the altitude would cause my heart to race much higher, but that did not really happen. Kept my rate below 170, as planned and my speed was the same as at lower elevation. I cannot say that I hurt less though...:)

    • Canoeing 1:49'32.3 Average heart rate 152 bpm, 17.06 km

      OC-6 Race: Alcatraz, Round the Rock. Flood tide, windy with rough conditions on San Francisco Bay. TE 5.0 and hit my max HR of 184 during a killer finish sprint.

    • Canoeing 0:07'28.8 Average heart rate 175 bpm, 1.12 km

      OC-6, 500m Mens Senior Master Finals. First Place NCOCA Championships 2011. About two and a half minutes of total effort getting a 400 pound outrigger canoe up to full speed, turning the 40 foot canoe around a buoy and then get her up and humming again! Six men all working together as a team. We had a powerful start, hit the turn well and accelerated back to take the win! A super HR spike - not much time to breathe. Yee-HA!

    • High Intensity Intermittent Training (HIIT)

      121 members

      Evidence continues to mount underscoring the superiority of HIIT exercise protocols in improving health in a variety of ways. Dr. Jonathan Little at the University of British Columbia has recently shown that HIIT is more effective at lowering high blood sugar for type II diabetics than continuous duration aerobic routines. Dr. Little has shown that 75 minutes of HIIT per week is more effective than 150 minutes weekly of the moderate intensity continuous duration exercise recommended by the American Diabetes Association. Happily, not many of us here need to be concerned with exercising to combat diabetes. But the encouraging implication of Dr. Little’s research may be of interest. Presumably if HIIT lowers blood sugar for full-fledged type II diabetics, it is also superior in lowering blood sugar and combatting metabolic syndrome in non-diabetics. HIIT works.

    • Heart Rate Zone and Percentage

      Kayaking, Training. krema2ren

      Karvonen method The Karvonen method factors in resting heart rate (HRrest) to calculate target heart rate (THR), using a range of 50–85% intensity: THR = ((HRmax − HRrest) × % intensity) + HRrest Example for HRmax of 180 and a HRrest of 70: 50% Intensity: ((180 − 70) × 0.50) + 70 = 125 bpm 85% Intensity: ((180 − 70) × 0.85) + 70 = 163 bpm Zoladz method An alternative to the Karvonen method is the Zoladz method, which derives exercise zones by subtracting values from HRmax: THR = HRmax − Adjuster ± 5 bpm Zone 1 Adjuster = 50 bpm Zone 2 Adjuster = 40 bpm Zone 3 Adjuster = 30 bpm Zone 4 Adjuster = 20 bpm Zone 5 Adjuster = 10 bpm Example for someone with a HRmax of 180: Zone 1(easy exercise): 180 − 50 ± 5 → 125 − 135 bpm Zone 4(tough exercise): 180 − 20 ± 5 → 155 − 165 bpm

      Classic timer for 8 repetitions of 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off. It will display "Work 1", "Work 2" etc during the 20 seconds on and then "Rest " and a countdown during the 10 seconds rest period in between. It will also beep during the rest period.
