Click here to watch an interview with Declan Connolly and Roy Benson, authors of Heart Rate Training. The book is designed to provide recreational athletes with the same heart-rate training information as elite athletes in a way that is easily accessible and applicable to their own training needs.

Several factors affect heart rate at rest and during exercise. Monitoring your resting heart rate and your exercise heart rate will allow you to make appropriate adjustments such as eating more or taking a day off when your rate is elevated. The factors that elevate resting heart rate also elevate exercise heart rate.
Several conditions may cause your heart rate numbers to skip all over the place. One cause of irregular readings is a loose chest strap that allows the electrodes to slip and slide on the skin and cause electricity from the friction. When testing in the lab, we have seen devices such as pedometers and GPS systems interfere with the heart rate monitor signal.
You can use heart rate data to indicate too much training in the early stages, what we refer to as acute overtraining, or overreaching. 1. Record and monitor your resting heart rate and exercise heart rate response to a given workload as often as possible. It usually has all the signs and symptoms of overreaching plus a couple more: resting heart rate continues to be elevated at rest, and exercise heart rates continue to be depressed despite efforts to work harder.
Though he’s only owned the New Orleans Hornets for a week, Tom Benson has a big change in store for the team. Benson, a New Orleans native and owner of the NFL Saints, wants to change the Hornets’ name to something that better reflects the local culture. The Jazz relocated from New Orleans to Salt Lake City in 1979, while the Hornets moved to New Orleans from Charlotte in 2002.
The New Orleans Hornets beginning next season reportedly will change their team nickname to the Pelicans, paying homage to Louisiana’s state bird. A name change for the Hornets had been expected since Tom Benson purchased the team last April, and the Hornets also considered “Krewe” and “Brass” for the new moniker. NBA Commissioner David Stern supports the name change and the job Benson has done in his eight months as owner.
