Calculate heart rate
Target Heart Rate Calculator
Your resting heart rate is the number of times your heart beats per minute when you’re at rest. For most of us, between 60 and 100 beats per minute (bpm) is normal. Target Heart Rate (THR) range values are often calculated to ensure exercise intensity is maintained at a desired level.
Some drugs and medications affect heart rate, meaning you may have a lower maximum heart rate and target zone
How to calculate heart rate?
The formula used for heart rate calculations looks like this:
HR = resting_HR + intensity% * (220 – resting_HR – age)
Target Heart Rate and Estimated Maximum Heart Rate
Identifying your maximum heart rate will assist you in determining your target heart rate, allowing you to exercise more effectively. Between 70% and 85% of one’s maximum heart rate is recommended by exercise physiologists and clinicians. When you first begin exercising, aim for a heart rate of about 70% of your maximum heart rate.
THR = (70 to 85%) x (HRmax) beats/min
THR = Target Heart Rate
Heart rate is likely to be both above and below the recommended intensity during an exercise session. Maintaining an average heart rate near the midpoint of the defined range should be the target.
