LevelCalc heart rate calculator. This one calculates heart rate values based entirely upon the revised ABCC/BCF training guidelines which are based upon the riders maximum heart rate. Riders who have no idea what there maximum heart rate (MHR) is can estimate from the following equations:
Females MHR = 209 - (age * 0.7)
Males MHR = 214 - (age * 0.8)
These formula are generally considered more reliable than the previously used 220-age.
The 6 zones can be simplified into three bands, for use by younger and non-elite riders. For convenience I have colour coded these bands: Blue=Basic Band, green=Intensive Band, red=Maximal Band
