When it comes to metabolic training, heart rate tracking is incredible powerful in helping you achieve more. Different heart rate patterns, and intensities have unique benefits making it clear that there is no one way to get results. Heart rate training can exist along two spectrums: high/low intensity, and steady state/intervals. Each quadrant has it's specific benefits which is why in our sessions we aim to give you some of each type of training. Training in only one quadrant is a key reason for a lack of results. For example too much steady state work (cardio) can break down muscle and connective tissue, and negatively influence hormones and metabolism if it isn't balanced with the other quadrants. When you incorporate more variety in your training, you build a more resilient body that can achieve better results all round. It's all about training smarter, not harder!
