I was wondering how often others push their heart rates beyond 90% of their max? For me it’s about once a week normally then twice a week when pushing the fitness up a notch before an event.

For me, pretty much never. I know my max HR is about 186 but on the bike I struggle to get it above 165 and it's incredibly rare I see it above 170.

I try to hit the little slopes with gusto, so will easily hit near max when cresting. :heat:. That could happen several times per ride.

Every ride. Does that count ? It's hilly where I ride. Max near 185, hit 180 plus most rides.
It is a poll option now!
