Different Heart Rate zones for Running and Cycling

Although I saw several posts on this topic, I really want to give this issue the attention it deserves.

 

As a paying Premium member, I want to have my data to have value. For that, I have to be able to differentiate my running and cycling HR performances. Now, usually, the max (or treshold) HR value of running is well above cycling, mainly because with running you use more muscles that require hence more oxygen. For example, my running HR Treshold is 160, whereas my cycling HR Treshold is 150. Having set my HR values on running, my cycling HR data are useless. 

 

It wouldn't be too much trouble correcting this I hope, I know Trainingpeaks does give me the opportunity to differentiate HR zones between sports, so I can use Trainingpeaks to analyze my workouts. WIth Strava Premium I cannot.

 

So, I would give a shout out to the people of Strava, to add this feature, so that my Premium account can be more valuable. Thank you.

    Hi Folks, 

    Thanks for taking the time to leave comments and upvotes. Due to the overwhelming number of potential projects on our roadmap, we haven't had the chance to consider this yet.

  • This would be a great addition to Strava. My Garmin device allows for different HR values in the 5 training zones. These HRs are determined by laboratory testing at quite an expense to myself. Max HR on the bike is some 17 beats below Max HR on run (163bpm vs 180bpm). Similarly, OBLA is 137bpm on bike and 160bpm on running.  these differences are very important when it comes to analysing results of training sessions.

  • I have the same problem. You have alerady mentioned you would add different heart zones setting in your comment in 2014 and still no update. As a premium member I would also expect that feature!

  • +1 on separate HR metrics for running vs cycling.

    What's the value of the suffer score if it is based on the wrong training zones? I think this is a necessity in a premium version. Maybe we should all switch to Trainingspeaks until Strava solves this issue.

  • That is probably why my Suffer score of cycling activities is so much lower than with running.

    I agree that the one of both becomes useless in this, and thus also the fitness and freshness has no meaning anymore

  • Yup.  Me too.  I also want this.  My runs show up as being primarily in "anaerobic" since my zones are set from mountain biking.

  • +1 This is something I've wanted for a couple years now from Strava.

  • Yes please, it's crazy Strava doesn't have this already. I can do a long hard ride and get a very low suffer score and fitness progression on the graph compared to a much easier and shorter run.

  • I also would like to be able to enter two different max heart rates for cycling/running as they are certainly different (186 vs 194)

  • I find it hard to accept that this has not been addressed yet. The Garmin website allows us to input a max heart rate for running,  biking, and swimming. The different zones show up on my Garmin device as I ride, but when it uploads to Strava the zones are based on my max (running) HR. I want to see my actual time in zones, especially on rides when I am doing a lot of climbing. Please fix this!

  • +1 I agree. Its annoying to have to get out my chart and customize the zones for different activities.

  • I started this thread two years ago. And no response or action from Strava whatsoever. Quite disappointing, and because of this omission, making combined TSS scores and other related metrics unuseful, I recently I terminated my premium Strava-account because of this. I now use solely Trainingpeaks, they got the data right.

    Strava.......??????? Please respond! I'm dying for this possibility

  • Strava I applaud you for improving on suffer score by introducing relative effort. But you advertise this as a way of comparing efforts between sports, diciplines and people, when in fact it is useless in that regard without having the ability to have different heart rate zones for different sports.

  • I'll admit I don't know a lot about heart rate training, so I won't have my feelings hurt here if someone can set me straight on this, but it seems to me that the issue is the heart rate zones, not max heart rate. Wouldn't max heart rate be a static number, regardless of what exercise/activity type you are doing? If my max heart rate is 185, I thought that meant that is the upper limit of how fast my heart can beat - if I can only get it to 175 on a bike it probably just means I typically won't reach my max HR on a bike. I get adjusting the different zones, but I don't understand having more than 1 max heart rate.

    Maybe this is just semantics and I'm getting trapped by an unimportant detail, but as a person who is trying to learn what this stuff means I am a little tripped up by the notuon of multiple max heart rates.
