Target Heart Rate Training
Add some variety to your workouts with Target Heart Rate Training! It is easy to estimate your heart rate range, just take 220-your age and then take 70-90% of that number. Example: A 30-year old would be 220-30=190 and then 70-90% would be 133-171. Many gym cardio machines have these numbers already calculated for you! For out door workouts, you can take your pulse for 6 or 10 seconds then multiply or use a heart rate monitor watch.
Training within your target heart rate range will enable you to become aerobically fit faster. That means better endurance and lung capacity. It also means more efficient cardio workouts which translates into more work done in less time! If you don't train in your THR, that's ok too, you'll still work your body and burn some calories. Use your target heart rate ranges to provide some incentive to push a little harder or make your own intervals. It's another way to make your cardio fun!
