Determine the best target heart rate zone for burning fat.|
If you are in good health and engage in low to medium exercise, you will typically burn fat between 60% and 70% of your maximum heart rate.
If you are in good aerobic shape (advanced fitness), select a target heart rate zone between 70% and 85% of your maximum heart rate.
Note: These are theoretical numbers based on common research. Please consult your physician to determine if these numbers are best for you.
Maximum Heart Rate (Beats per Minute) = 220-Age
Maximum Fat Burn Zone = 60% to 70% of Maximum Heart Rate
Maximum Cardio Benefit Zone = 70% to 85% of Maximum Heart Rate
Danger Zone = 85% of MaximumHeart Rate to Maximum Heart Rate
