Is there a TR workout I could use to determine max HR?
Using the inaccurate way of determining max HR via the age formula, my max HR is 176. I currently have it set at 177.
However, last year I had it as high as 185 (for maybe one second), and the first time I did a ramp test I got it up to 180. The second ramp test I got as high as 183 (again, for about 1 second). Anything above about 175 feels like I’m going to die.
I really don’t use HR to train, I do think it’s an interesting data point, though. Just wondering what I should set mine at…or should I be using 183??
