This will work out your recovery zone at 70% (the lower value). This roughly represents around, or just below, your lactate threshold and the point at which you are still working with oxygen.
The higher value is what we call your ‘Red’ zone for higher intensity work. Here you are building up lactate and working without oxygen.
