Ok, that being the case I'll circle back. If the average HR goes up then the range for zone 4 would go up. In your response you state 'The more endurance fit one becomes the harder it is to elevate heart rate'. This is true. But, the rider would then still be in the same predicament. Even if they rebased there zones the rider would still be in the situation of having trouble getting to zone 4. Because if they have greater fitness, their LTHR goes up and there HR zone ranges then go up accordingly. I might be making the case for why using only HR is problem as compared to a power meter. Thanks!

Hi Joe, I'm confused. If I do a 20 min time trial test and then take the average HR for the 20 minute period. Using the below link if I increase my average HR for the test it will increase my zone range. http://lwcoaching.com/power-level-heart-rate-zone-calculator/ If I'm stronger and I push a higher average HR, generally my LT would have increased. Is this correct? I'm very curious for two reasons, 1) as a trainer and 2) last week as much as I tried I could not get my HR to HRZ5. Thanks!

I had a question. If the athlete was to do a fitness test there's a good chance they would have raised their LT heart rate. Thus, wouldn't their zone range for HRZ4 go up? Basically ending back up in the same boat? Thanks!
