Heart Rate Training
A great way to train towards your fitness goal is to work at a target heart rate based on your age and the training target you have set.
Using a heart rate monitor will ensure:
- That your training is not to easy or that you don’t overtrain
- You are training at the correct exertion level for your fitness goal
- Each session gets you results
- Your workout is based on a percentage of your maximum heart rate
How do I get my maximum heart rate?
To calculate your maximum heart rate (MHR) = 220 – your age
For example if you are 29 years old, your MHR would be 191
