What is heart rate training, and how does it improve your fitness?

The concept is based on reaching and maintaining an ideal heart rate through exercise and movement. Heart rate-based workouts are scientifically designed to keep heart rates in a target zone, which spikes metabolism and increases energy. The science behind these workouts focuses on excess post-exercise oxygen-consumption (EPOC), which is just a fancy way of saying that when someone spends at least 12-20 minutes in their target zone, the body needs to replenish oxygen after the workout is over. To do this, your body continues to burn calories at a higher rate—even after the workout has ended!
