Every time you finish a workout, you will receive a workout summary graph which can be viewed in a summary e-mail or in the Myzone app.
Summary graphs will vary depending on the type of workout you performed. Other factors that impact your heart rate zones are:
- Static vs. Dynamic
- Body part utilized
- Duration and number of reps
- Body position
- Rest interval
Different Types of Workout Graphs
When comparing graphs, consider the stress of the workout you performed that would be placed on the cardiovascular system.
For example, a yoga class may feel and be very intense, but it may not increase your heart rate in the same way a cardio workout would. In this case, a graph that displays grey and blue zones might be appropriate.
An interval workout may display peaks and valleys indicating a high-intensity work phase and a low or moderate-intensity recovery phase.
A resistance training workout may look surprisingly low-intensity despite the hard effort exerted during the workout. You might see some warm color bars or green here and there throughout the graph.
A steady-state cardio workout that has sustained effort on a piece of equipment, such as a bike or treadmill, might have big blocks of one color indicating steady-state training. You should see a gradual plateau on the front and ends of the graph indicating a warm-up and cool-down.
If you feel like your workout graph is incorrect, we recommend talking to the club staff at your facility or getting in contact with the Myzone technical support team to discuss further.
