rest-button.pngIn a collaborative effort with Scott over at Straight to the Bar, we will be writing all about rest for the month of October. You can expect a new article on the matter every week.

This week’s article was written by Scott and is called using pulse rate to determine rest break length.

The only thing that I would like to add is that I am not a fan of the 220 minus your age formula for calculating your maximum heart rate. It generally has no bearing in reality, in my experience. If you can not afford a formal stress test, then you can try the workout that I used to determine my maximum heart rate.
