What does your heart rate tell?
Heart is your most important muscle. It pumps blood to your brain and muscles and takes care that they get enough oxygen and fuel. Heart rate is the rate of the pumping – the more blood is needed the higher the heart rate.
When you train your body gets loaded. Good recovery is essential to get full benefits of your training – your body needs time to reload its resources!
Training Intensity describes the relative intensity of your exercise scaled to your maximal performance. Monitoring your Training Intensity in real time helps you to avoid overtraining and undertraining and keeping going as long as you plan.
Any physical activity speeds up your energy consumption and calorie burning. PulseOn’s advanced energy consumption calculation is based on accurate tracking of your heart rate.
The most important question on any exercise is: what effect did this exercise have on my fitness? This is important as for a fit person low intensity training has less impact than for a less-fit person – the effect is personal. PulseOn tells you the effect of your training with Training Effect (TE). Training Effect measures workout’s impact on aerobic fitness at a scale of 1.0-5.0.
Fitness level means your maximum aerobic performance. Its golden standard measure is VO2max (maximal oxygen consumption). Oxygen is consumed in your body when your muscles work – the more they work the more oxygen is needed.
