WHY HEART RATE MONITORS FOR CYCLING

If you follow professional cycling, you have been exposed to the advanced training of these incredible athletes. Winners of the Tour are using tools like heart rate monitors and power meters to prepare them for the rigors of competitive racing.

To understand how an HRM can help you, we established the
Polar 3 Point Message:

  1. In order to reach your competitive goals, you need to train at the right intensity.
  2. Heart rate is the only accurate measurement of your intensity or your exertion level.
  3. A Polar HRM is the easiest and most accurate way to continuously measure your heart rate.

The cycling community was the first to integrate heart rate monitors into their training in the United States. Olympic cyclists and tour riders have led the way through the eighties and nineties and into the 21st century.

If you're not using one, you probably train with someone who does. You may have resisted until now, and hopefully that will end here. There are many different thoughts on how to prepare yourself for competition. But the fact remains, to be prepared, you need to do different workouts. Endurance workouts, tempo rides and AT intervals are at the heart of an effective training plan. A heart rate monitor is the one thing that can lead you through each one of those workouts, and give you the valuable feedback that can help you turn your weaknesses into strengths.

For endurance workouts, it paces you so you don't overdo it. For tempo rides, it keeps you on track. And for interval workouts, it makes sure you go hard enough and you recover when it's time. Nothing else can guide you that way. It can show you when you're dehydrating, or running out of nutrition, or not recovered from a previous day's workout. It allows you to analyze workouts and races. Your titanium frame is great, but if you're not training the right way, it may as well be made out of lead.

With the advent of the Power meter, the trend is to integrate wattage and heart rate into training. These two critical factors together give the competitive cyclist an absolute way to gauge performance and track progress on a ride by ride basis.
