Heart Rate Zone Run Test

Heart Rate Zone Run Test

Determine your training zones with a heart rate zone run test and maximise your potential by developing the right energy systems in your body.

Generic calculations based on max heart rate and age are rarely accurate, knowing your correct zones will ensure that you get the most out of your training.

Heart Rate Zone Run Test with BSX Technology

No more need for invasive blood tests. The BSX Insight uses infrared light technology to measure muscle oxygenation levels. This type of technology has been used for many years by surgons in operating rooms to measure blood oxygenation with pulse oxymeters.

BSX Techologies has created an algorithm that corelates muscle de-oxygenation with lactate acumulation in the blood. This technology has been proven accurate with testing done by 3rd party laboratories around the world with simulataneous blood lactate testing.

It has been shown to be just as accurate as blood lactate testing to determine Functional Threshold Power and Threshold Heart Rate without the invasiveness of taking blood.

This test is also available for cycling to determine power and heart rate zones. Please click here for more details.
