Hello everyone, during s & s swings I cannot respect the formula of MAF (180- age). Is it a problem ? because the maximum must be 132 and I regularly arrive at 150 .....
Thanks

Not a problem.
+1. Not a problem at all.

May I ask, where did you get the impression that your HR during S&S swings should stay below MAF HR? You're not the first... I just wondered where that's coming from currently.

I don’t see it as a ’problem’, even in light of that article.

I don’t normally use an HRM for S&S, but based on some recent conversations on some other threads I thought I would try it for a while. Just as I suspected... I routinely am well below my AeT doing swings (16-28)

Oh, OK, yes, it does say that pretty clearly in the article. FWIW, the HR training with kettlebells turned out to be not quite that reliable (especially the need to limit the peaks). Some time after that article, Al moved away from that concept and talked about it in the StrongFirst Podcast episode: Podcast Episode #14: Al Ciampa | StrongFirst
