This is one of those books that I wish, wish, wish I could have read sooner. Now I understand more fully how I could have used a heart rate monitor to detect and prevent overtraining injuries. It doesn't just say 'rest is important'; it explains why and then actually teaches how to use a heart rate monitor to measure 'rest'. As a distance runner entering the cycling and swimming sports, I could have used the details this book gives about applying heart rate zones to all three disciplines. As a coach, I can tell who is working too hard, and who isn't working as hard as they think they are, and the book describes exactly how the heart rates should/shouldn't shift in each part of each workout in each sport. The book also addresses the variations. Every time I've worked with athletes the first time, they always seem to protest the low heart rate ranges used early on in training, but this book really helps with adjusting and fine-tuning the zones, and shows how to measure and handle the variations caused by factors such as cardiac creep and dehydration; I can adjust my coaching accordingly, specific to that athlete on that day. Plus, I see now how to use the different heart rates (maximum, resting and anaerobic threshold) along with the VO2 max specific to each person I coach. I underlined and dog-eared the sections that explained tests athletes in each sport can use to calculate these heart rates and VO2 maxes, especially for those who don't have access to lab equipment or funds or Ph.ds. I liked that the authors explained the science behind the monitors without using the too-formal, dense tone of a textbook yet not dumbing it down excessively.
