    hmm, thats pretty fuckin high for a stationary bike - were you going all out?

    your MHR is right around 196

    well, thats to be expected then. Your body needs to adapt to fast-paced cardio. You will see your HR start to decline as you get in better shape. I'd take it easy if you see if hop over 189, tho

    training in the 90%-100% HR range can be beneficial but should only be done for short bursts

    if my heartrate doesnt go down, how should i gauge my HIIT routine. i thought it was supposed to be based off heartrate, should i just go by feel (like bust ass for 30 sec, then slow it down a bit for 30 sec)? maybe RPM's on the bike?

    i was on the bike again today, heartrate was pretty high again 175-180 consistantly. so i basically tried judging my HIIT by rpms instead.
