RPE - Rate of Perceived Exertion Table

RPE - Rate of Perceived Exertion Table (Zones)
4/14/2014 10:11 AM
I often use "zone 1, zone 2, 3, 4, 5" when I post workouts.....It is especially helpful with the bike training because there is so much stopping and starting when you go out for rides....So, I like to keep it simple and have my athletes...work on "perception."

Zone 1 - recovery - easy - could go forever, getting body moving, flushing out the muscles from a hard effort
Zone 2 - breaking a sweat, getting heart rate up, but, no more then you would on a long run
Zone 3 - working into lactate threshold...about how you would feel racing a 15k to a half marathon
Zone 4 -  you're working and you can sustain for no more then 30-50 minutes..5k-10k race pace perception 
Zone 5 - Interval Pace - hard effort....short bursts....up to 5k race pace....

I hope this helps.....Maria

I do trust all of the ideas you've presented in your post. They're very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
