In order to prepare for the test we will need those wishing to participate to have a heart rate monitor. If you do not have a heart rate monitor then you will not be able to do the test. Ideally you need a monitor that will record the data so it can be downloaded and analysed afterwards, however if all you have is the monitor then data will be recorded manually on the night. We will use your results to work out your individual lactate threshold heart rate and training zones. It is also important to be reasonably fresh for the test so take a couple of easy days in training!
