I had open heart surgery 6 years ago and am using cycling to improve my fitness. I have a Tickr HR monitor and want to learn how to use heart rate to work out please?
I am not sure how best to work out using heart rates, is it a case of alternating between lower zones and higher zones on different days of the week? I have been off Zwift for the summer and am coming back to it for the winter, and during last winter I found I was kind of doing sporadic efforts, every other day or so, but I never felt like I was making progress and would feel quite exhausted a lot of the time. So I want to go for something more structured.
Looking online for advice there seems to be a myriad of conflicting information and techniques, so I thought I would ask on here.
Any advice you could offer would be appreciated.
