If you have been using any number of bike training apps. available today, they all require that you know your Max. HR to properly populate your training zones. To determine your Max. HR you could use the very inaccurate method of 220-age, put yourself through the Conconi Test (discussed later in this section), or use one of the newer algorithms discussed here. N.B.

The Conconi Test is a relatively simple way for cyclists to test their anaerobic threshold and was developed by the Italian exercise physiologist Francesco Conconi. Be advised that this is a very demanding test and should not be done if you have any heart conditions or are in a state of poor health.  Do not do this test alone.  You have been warned.
