The Agony of Max Heart Rate: 220-Age

April 18, 2013

If you check with the American Heart Association, they will inform you something like, "while everyone's max heart rate is difference, they all decline with age: something like '220-age'.

But what they don't tell you is the "collateral damage":

  1. Max Speed ~= Max Heart Rate
  2. Your Stomach shuts down at 75% MHR!
  3. Stomach shut down == no water!
Just try eating a burger while on a long ride! Maybe the "kids" can do it and then ride slowly but that is faster than your !!FAIL!! hammer!
