Training Impulse, developed by Banister in 1991, is a method to quantify training load based on heart rate and duration of an exercise. The method uses heart rate reserve, which considers Resting heart rate as well as Maximum heart rate, and a gender-specific weighting factor.
Runalyze will always use the activity's complete heart rate profile, if available, to correctly rate interval workouts.
