    Hey team,

    I was wondering what the best way to test for your zones any any sport other than bike and run.

    Your protocols have just changed when completing the test, obviously you believe these are better. Would the best method to use the average HR I’ve a longer duration like 60mins? The research I’ve done indicates that Stephen Seiler believes the average HR from an hour of power is the way to go?

    Trying to achieve some HR zones for other sports.

    Cheers
    Ben

    Talk test is best in my opinion because it pinpoints the first ventilatory threshold directly. The VT1 really matters, because that’s the threshold you need to stay below 80% of the time. Lactate threshold has a lot of tradition behind it, but little to no practical relevance.

    If I Only Had Room in My Suitcase for either the Lactate Threshold or the Ventilatory Threshold, I Would Pack the Ventilatory Threshold: Here’s Why
