Use first and second ventilatory thresholds (VT1 and VT2) to assign heart rate training zones in your spinning classes

Recomended by ACE - The American Council on Exercise

I asked Master Instructor Tom Scotto for his thoughts on Part 1Part 2 and Part3 of Is a 20 Minute Threshold Field Test realistic for your class?

Specifically I wanted to discuss the third article where I introduced the Two Threshold / Three Zone (2T/3Z) Heart Rate training system. This is the system that ACE is recommending to Personal Trainers and Group Fitness Instructors.

This interview ran a bit long so I have split it into two parts. (my preference is to keep each Podcast to around 20 minutes when possible)

Love to know your comments on this.

  • Does the Two Threshold / Three Zone Heart Rate training system make sense to you?
  • Would you be willing to try it in your class?
  • Do you see this as a better of worse alternative to what you are using now?
