Target Your Heart Rate – Zone Training

Your Target Heart Rate

The SmartHRM Fitness app and other apps that support the SmartHRM Heart Rate Monitor calculate your target heart rate zones based on your age and your maximum heart rate. While you exercise, the app displays your heart rate and a color zone bar and may also vibrate to let you know when you are “in the zone”. The standard formula for calculating your maximum heart rate is: 220 – Your Age.There are four zones you can work in:Warm-up/Cool down: 50-60% of your max. This is a good zone to stay in if you are new to exercise or are recovering from an injury. Always start and end an exercise session in this zone.Weight Loss: 60-75% of your max. If you’re in this zone, your expending enough energy to create a calorie deficit and to burn more fat than muscle.Aerobic: 75-85% of your max. In this zone, you’re getting a good cardio workout, exercising both heart and lungs. Ideal for improving fitness.Atheletic: 85-100%. This zone is for those who are in great athletic shape. Even experienced runners and exercisers should vary the intensity of their workout and hit their peak for short bursts (e.g. sprinting) or under the advice of a health or fitness trainer.
