Sports medicine and physical education use the exercise bike among other things to check how well the cardiovascular and respiratory systems are working.
Maximum heart rate: this means reaching your individual maximum heart rate whilst training at full capacity. The maximum heart rate reached depends on your age.
Another criteria for establishing the best training data is your weight. The target when working at full capacity is 3 watts/kg of body weight for men and 2.5 watts/kg of body weight for women. It must also be taken into account that this performance decreases from 30 years of age: approx. 1% per year with men and 0.8% per year with women
Example: Man; 50 years old; Weight 75 kg
Exertion heart rate: The ideal exertion level is between 65 – 75% (cf. chart) of the individual cardiovascular performance. This value changes depending on age.
Length of training session and frequency per week:
