GETTING YOUR PERSONAL F.A.S.T. TRAINING ZONES
To get your optimal target heart rate training zones, you will first perform the treadmill ramp test wearing a heart rate monitor. An instructional video on the website shows you exactly how to do this test. Your test results are then entered into the F.A.S.T. Zone calculator where the unique software will calculate your personalised heart rate zones for maximum training results when doing the workout schedule.
A customised 12 week personal training schedule is built from a data bank of over 800 individual routines. By answering a short questionnaire a tailored workout plan is created for you that takes into account your present level of fitness and how much time you can devote to training.
All levels are catered for from the complete beginner just looking to get in shape to the professional athlete who needs a competitive edge. The workouts are structured into specific green, orange and red target heart rate zones. This allows you to focus harder on the day's workout goal for maximum training stimulus in that area. It also takes the stress off the metabolic pathways involved in the other zones, giving you more time for recovery.
Conor McGregor's F.A.S.T. Conditioning uses a mix of equipment for a more balanced physique. You will get a complete workout of both upper and lower body.
