Why 220

I have been receiving the magazine for quite a while now and it is really helpful and interesting - but why is it called 220 triathlon, am I missing something??

    a rule of thumb for your max heart rate is 220 minus your age, although its not a precise measurement. Hope this helps.

    We were talking about this last week. (How sad are we!)

    I thought it was something to do with times for standard distance but was told it was your maximum heart rate.

    Help us out 220!

    It is to do with the old method of working out your maximum heart rate. Look on the inside front cover or first page of any Tri 220 mag.
