Ed Burke Phd.

Fine Tune your workout intensity! Precision Heart rate Training author Ed Burke introduces the basic concepts of heart rate training.  A panel of experts explains how to design and use training programs for seven different sports and activities.

     "Precision Heart rate Training" is written by a collection of
coaches, each contributing to a single chapter and sport. It's pretty informative, has good technical information and backing, and easy to read. Best of all, having 10 contributors means exposure to a wide
variety of opinions and, each chapter being pretty terse, there is not a lot of filler. Uses actual lab and research data to justify advice, but in an easy to read fashion.
     Each chapter contains training guidelines specific to the activity described, including how to find the optimal training intensity, design an effective training program, and adjust workout intensity, plus sample workouts programs or both.
     With heart rate monitors, athletes and exercisers can use high tech biofeedback training to develop state of the art programs for better performance. Precision Heart rate Training shows you how to take full advantage of today's training technology. This book is an ideal companion to download heart monitors like Polar Vantage NV, the X Trainer Plus,  Accurex Plus and the New S series... especially when used in conjunction with the Polar Interface and software to precisely track work outs. 
RECOMMENDATION: FOR THE WEEKEND WARRIOR, BEGINNING ATHLETE, OR   For the analytical type of person but easy to understand.
