Using your maximum heart rate as a tool in planning your workouts is a very effective method. You can use your maximum heart rate to discover how to burn more calories and experience the best results when exercising.
Calculate your heart rate by subtracting your age from 220 and then use the gauge below to classify the intensity of your workouts. The American Heart Association recommends 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise or 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous exercise.
Moderate-Intensity Exercise: 50% – 70% of Maximum Heart Rate
Vigorous-Intensity Exercise: 70% – 85% of Maximum Heart Rate
