    What is Z1?
    Way way back, when sports scientists studied human’s cardiovascular performance, they came up with the “Zones” based on the how many beats/min the heart is producing. With that, they can determine the benefits and drawbacks of each Zone training.
    Zone 1 – 50% – 60% maximal effort
    Zone 2 – 60% – 70% maximal effort
    Zone 3 – 70% – 80% maximal effort
    Zone 4 – 80% – 90% maximal effort
    Zone 5 – 90% – 100% maximal effort
    *Note: the maximal effort is YOUR perceived maximal effort, so it is very individualized. Professional athletes are machine tested to determine their maximum heart rate and use that as a very specific guide to determine their Zones.
