what is zone 2

Zone 2 is a heart rate range or power output that corresponds to a moderate intensity of exercise. This is typically around 60-75% of your maximum heart rate or functional threshold power. Training in Zone 2 is important for several reasons:

Aerobic base building

Zone 2 training helps you build a strong foundation of aerobic fitness, which is essential for endurance sports like triathlon, cycling, or running. By training your body to efficiently use oxygen and fat as fuel, you can improve your endurance, recovery, and overall health.

Injury prevention

Training too hard, too often, or too soon can lead to overuse injuries, fatigue, burnout, or illness. By training in Zone 2, you can reduce the risk of injury and enhance your ability to handle higher intensities later in your training cycle.

Mental resilience

Training in Zone 2 can also help you develop mental resilience and patience. This is because Zone 2 training can feel easy or boring at times, especially if you are used to high-intensity workouts. However, by embracing the process and staying focused on your long-term goals, you can cultivate a sense of discipline, confidence, and joy in your training.

At #Zone2YourJourney, we believe that training in Zone 2 is not only effective, but also enjoyable and sustainable. We offer personalized coaching services that cater to your unique needs, goals, and lifestyle. Our coaching philosophy is based on the latest scientific research, as well as our own experience as athletes and coaches. We also emphasize the importance of nutrition, recovery, and mindset in your training journey.
