As with numerous trends in the fitness industry, heart rate training has be gaining popularity and is now being used as a tool for fat loss and increased athletic performance. Your heart rate measures exercise intensity as well as the energy system your body is using to fuel exercise. It can be a very useful tool when deciding exercise intensity, volume and rest intervals. Everybody has seen the general HR range guidelines that give a fat burn zone and an anaerobic zone, but how accurate are they?
It would make sense to say that no two people have the same finger print. And just like a finger print, each person has their own metabolic finger print. Your metabolic fingerprint can give you your exact HR at which you are 1. Burning maximum fat 2. The point at which your body transitions from burning fat to burning carbs and 3. Your Max HR.
These numbers can be used in exercise to maximize fat loss during exercise, and increase athletic performance. If you’re looking to lose weight or improve the way in which you train, Method Metabolic Testing can help take your training to that next level.
