Target Heart Rate

By December 10, 2014July 16th, 2018Health Care News, Health Care Tips

Before you begin to exercise, you can easily determine your target heart rate by following these three steps:

1) Subtract your age from 220. If you are 50, your maximum heart rate is
170.

Example: 220 – 50 = 170

2) Multiply your maximum heart rate by 0.55 to obtain the bottom of your
target zone.

Example: 170 x 0.55 = 93

3) Multiply your maximum heart rate by 0.65 to obtain the top of your
target zone.

Example: 170 x 0.65 = 110
