I am using an adidas MiCoach HRM and program for my cardio workouts 6 days a week with the 7th day rest.
My heart rate zones are : blue (low effort) green (good effort) yellow (hard effort) & red (intense effort).
My question is, is it ok to have
1) one workout per day that involves the heart rate being in the red zone for some time for 6 days a week consecutively?
2) or two different workouts a day that involves the HR being in red again for various times of each workout?
The reason for my question is cause my weekly workout looks like this sort of:
Day 1. cardio1 - 34 min with 5 min in red & cardio2 - 34 min with 4 min in red.
Day 2. cardio1 - 34 min with 3 min in red & cardio2 - 20 min with 1 min in red.
Day 3. cardio1 - 25 min with 0 min in red & cardio2 - 20 min with 1 min in red.
Day 4. cardio1 - 45 min with 0 min in red & cardio2 - 20 min with 1 min in red.
Day 5. Rest day
Day 6. cardio1 - 28 min with 1.5 min in red & cardio2 - 28 min with 8 min in red.
Day 7. cardio1 - 30 min with 1 min in red & cardio2 - 20 min with 1 min in red.
Just curious, as I dont want to stress my heart as well. Btw, I am healthy and fit to workout. So no physcial problems in my heart (yet) :)
