    Is it beneficial to hit MHR consistently?

    I often do HIIT training in the form of sprints because I need a combination of strength, endurance and speed for various types of running or cycling. When I do them it is usually 30m dashes with a short break of about 15-20 seconds for a total of four times. Sometimes I just sprint for as long as possible flat-out, which might be up to about 250m. Afterwards I can feel a 'pulse' in all different places even though I'm not checking for one anywhere.

    How many people actually go to their MHR??? And is it beneficial to do it regularly? I love the feeling of my heart trying to jump out my chest

    It's beneficial for increasing your VO2 max as well as resting heart rate, if you are going all out most likely you are exceeding your Max Heart rate.
