Are you working within your target heart rate zone? Your target heart
rate zone (training zone) is the range between 60% and 80% of your maximum
heart rate. Working within this zone gives you the maximum health and
fat-burning benefits from your cardiovascular activity.
To determine if you're working within your zone, locate your radial
artery at the side of your wrist with your index finger, and count the
beats for 10 seconds, then multiply by 6. This result should be within
the minimum and maximum training heart rate values listed below.
To use the calculators, simply enter your age and resting heart rate
