Target Heart Rate

To determine your target heart rate, you should first figure out your maximum heart rate (MHR). This is done by subtracting your age from 220.  EXAMPLE:  If you’re 32 years old:  220 – 32 = 188 (so now you know your MHR is 188). Then take 85 % of 188, which gives you 160, so that’s your target heart rate — the ideal number of times your heart should beat in one minute when training.
The easiest way to keep track of your heart rate is by wearing a heart rate monitor. If you don’t want to buy one — just find your pulse, either on your wrist or on your neck (usually right next to your larynx), count the number of times your heart beats in 6 seconds, and then multiply that number by 10.
Hope this helps!
