Figuring Your Target Heart Rate

A Tip for Figuring Your Target Heart Rate

  • 220- ( age ) = Maximum heart rate.  Then, multiply your maximal heart times 60 - 70%.  This is the recommended percentage range for improving your fat utilization.
  • In order to see and feel change within the body, it should be done on a consistent basis.  ( 3 - 5 times a week ).  Beginner's should first try to achieve 20 - 30 minutes of continuous and building up to 30 - 45 minutes of continuous aeorbic exercise.  Once you are able to achieve that amount of exercise, a target heart rate should be your next goal, over a period of 30 - 45 minutes.
  • Once you are not reaching your target heart rate zone, you should challenge yourself by trying new cardio equipment or gradually speeding your pace up during your 30 - 45 minutes of aerobic exercise.
