If you’re serious about your sport then you are probably serious about conditioning.

Now, with the aid of this book and one small device, the heart rate monitor, it is possible to apply the latest technology, science and research and take the guesswork out of training, monitor progress and see results.

From functions, features, and operational advice for your device, to interpreting and applying the results, Heart Rate Training is a step-by-step guide to optimizing performance.

Through it, you’ll learn how, when, and why monitors can and should, be incorporated into your workouts, training and conditioning programme to produce maximum results.
