Heart Rate Training Programs
Try this. Note, if you don't have a heart rate monitor you can always take a reading using your middle and forefingers just below you jaw (the carotid artery), or hand one your chest. Obviously, you have to stop to measure it, but you can soon get an idea of the work rate you need to maintain to stay in your target zone.
For stroke rate, repeat above process to find the right level for getting into the magic zone. You should feel comfortable but challenged - if you find it hard work, drop the % rate and build over the following weeks.
One of the best rowers on the market with heart rate training programs in our view is the Lifecore R100 .
