Anyone got a good formula for setting HR zones based on resting HR and max rate?  Alex.

Sounds like you're looking for the Karvonen HR Formula?  It takes resting heart rate into account when calculating training / heart rate zones.

Hey thanks Jay.  Had a look at various sites and some athletes have done comparisons on the different methods and this comes as most accurate.  Done the easy bit now for the stress test - 15 minutes will be enough for me.  Regards Alex Rankin Shropshire.
