The thing I don’t get is that on google it says your zones should be between 60-70% to lose weight, not up to 90%...? And if my zone is between 60-70 then it’s 115-135 but on the elliptical I can’t get my heart rate to be that low :( so am I burning fat the right way then?
I dont agree that u need this bulshit formula. Jump on ur bike or whatever fitnes ur into and go do it as hard as u can.. like efort u cant sustain for more than 5-15 seconds and see what is the actual ur personal max heart rate.. those formulas are trash and meant just for kids to play around. And note.. before u doit u must warm up and cool down!! And u must be somewhat fit and used to phisical stress! Example.. i rode my bike like 10 mins around 170 bpm 5mins 180bpm last 60 seconds 185 and then smashed it up to my current max 195 and after hitting max.. dont quit ur activity to zero keep quiet good efort and decrease gradualy..
how is this right my resting heart rate is 45, and im 29. so if i do 220 -29 thats 191-45 =146 x.99= 145 lol i run at 155 sometimes, i honestly d9nt know my max but when i push hard i go to 160 almost, and im runni g hard, now i dont know if mines is really close to 191 or not but still
hello... this was so so well explained and interesting....!!! i am a (runner)and i never check the heart rate have trouble understanding...but when i was in the hospital for a surgery to correct an athletic injury in the hip... they kept checking the heart monitor that i was (dying?) since the rate pulse was too low...and the monitor kept going off.. finally i told them i think this is just me...since irun? and they had to turn off that machine so i could sleep!!!! lol in the morning the rate is like 55? jeez maybe i AM DYING?
I'll second those who think that you're spreading misinformation by using the 220-age formula. It's worse than useless for helping any individual runner come up with an accurate max heart rate. I've been using a HR monitor and keeping close track of my own data for the past decade. At age 48, my max HR was 200; I regularly achieved that at the very end of all-out 5Ks. Your formula would have given 172 as my max HR. In truth, that was a couple of beats above my 85% HR. I sustained a HR of 172 for an entire marathon that year. I ran several 5Ks back then at an average HR of 187. These days, my max HR is 189. (I hit 191 at the end of an all-out 5K two years ago.) Your formula would give me a max HR of 162 (220 minus 58). 162 is a HR that I am able to sustain, without too much trouble, for the last 7 miles of my regular 14-mile long run. It's my 85% pace or a little above: marathon pace, in a word. It is NOT my max HR. I realize you're trying to help educate people here, but you're actually dispensing misleading information that, if embraced by gullible runners, will significantly diminish their ability to train smartly and well.
Hi this was really helpful....I am currently doing VCE physical education and I am unsure how to calculate the maximum heart rate from a scenario provided on my homeowork. Do you have any formulas for accurately calculating maximum heart rate. (I was not given any information about resting heart rate). I would really appreciate your help....thanks :)
Zinger you are also correct. He is saying in general. Of course everyone is different. I love how when some one wants to help others by sharing info a bunch of uptight haters come out to talk smack. He also says not every one not every age.
Adam - Couldn't agree more. This is one of the worst "rule of thumb" formula's in sports today. Here's a better rule of thumb for all you believers out there. Any formula that uses ones age to predominately determine performance is fubar.
He is correct. Just because you regularly run over the limits does not mean that the rules have changed. The 220-age formula is good and safe rule of thumb. If you want to play Russian roulette, please go ahead, just make sure you only speak for yourself.
The "220 minus Age" formula is very inaccurate and never used anymore for serious calculations of the max. HR . E. g. my real personal max. heart rate is approx. 30 bpm (!!!) higher than calculated by this formula!
my resting heart rate was 45 - 59 even when i stood up, now for some reasons since last year it can fluctuate from 80 minimun to 105 , i used to workout hard, run almost everyday and lift weights.
now i cant jog as i used to , i get pounding heart easily with miniun excersion, and ive lost a lot of fitness , i went to cardiologist but only issue was highblood pressure ( i was 25 when i got diagnosed, now im 26 and very unhappy)
+Ryan Fallon you video help a lot thank you. so i just found out my RHR and i did that while sitting at the office and it is 64 beat per minute and the time is 16:20 on my side of the world(UK). i took as RHR while you "at rest" as just been normal. am i right? i will do this 3 different times in 3 days as i read some resources on the internet too that is the best way they say. At the beginning i though RHR as coming to stop after a jog, running or doing other exercise.
RHR is your heart rate when at rest. So just measure how many beats per minute your heart is when at rest and that will be your RHR. At the time of the video mine was at 60 beats per minute, thus my RHR was 60. Does that make sense?
Hey Robert! Thanks for asking and that is a great question. When doing many cardio workouts and even HIIT workouts, to get the best results, you usually want to stay between 60% and 90% of your MAX target heart rate during the workout. Those 2 numbers are just what has been shown to get the optimum results. Through research you may find some say it's between 70% and 85% or even 70%-90%. I use 60%-90% because it's what I have found more often when researching the subject. Let me know if that answered your question!
On today’s market there are many products with such orientation, but most popular is advertised brand Viagra tablets.
