220 - age = ?
the answer from above - resting heart rate = ?
the answer from above * 65% (low end of heart rate) OR 85% (high end) =?
the answer from above + resting heart rate =
220 - 23 (age) = 197
197 - 65 (resting heart rate) = 132
132 * 65% (low end of heart rate) OR 85% (high end) = 85.8 OR 112.2
85.8 + 65 (resting heart rate) = 150 112.2 + 65 (rhr) = 177
The target heart rate zone for this person would be 150 to 177
good stuff, thanks for this info.
