    So Lance and most of the other pros don't do weight lifting for strength training?

    i think my max hr is 212 because that as high as i can get it while sprinting for 2 minutes on a treadmill. is there any reason that that wouldn't be correct?

    Not so much that it wouldn't be correct but that you have different max's for different sports as I have come to find out through some research. an example is running versus cycling. You can reach a higher max running than you can on a bike. Try to get to 212 on the bike I bet you would have a hard time getting to if at all. Same thing with swimming. :)

    a trained cyclist will get an equal or higher HRmax and/or VO2max, assuming they aren't a trained runner

    Agree. When I first started cycling, I couldn't hit or hold as high an HR as during running due to muscle fatigue and burning. Now, after a few years of riding, no problem at all going to my max.

    It's not all that uncomfortable at 95% of max anymore. In fact, those big numbers come up all too easily on climbs, especially after a couple of hours of riding in the heat.

    You made that claim before. All my information says that even well trained, you will get near the running max hr on a bike but running will always be higher. I'm not challenging you but I'm obviously not reading what you are. Can you give me a reference? :eek:

    The difference for most people would be that you are likely to be at better trained at running than cycling for the average individual? (Because most physical activity/sports involve running, but only cycling involves cycling).

    That's where I got my original information. I've studied physiology at uni.

    i did a vo2max test and take 70 percent or 65 percent of my vo2max what is say 82% and 77% of my heart rate max i settle my polar to those two values most of the time and once a week i train above lactate thresshold just to get used to the feeling.training at those heart rates did miracles for me after 2 months of training i am gaining serious fitness i also use this wile doing some running etc...
