Before I start with a technical answer, let me just tell you that I sometimes think my heart is about to come out my chest on my HIIT cardio days. 😩 My cardio day goal is 2-3 times a week and weights day goal is 3-4 times a week. This is a short, sweet, and get to the point post. Please comment below if you have any questions or feel free to contact me via email, Facebook, or Instagram.
Factual Info –
“Target heart rate—the heart rate range used to determine the desired intensity of an activity—will differ depending on the goal of the workout. You can calculate target heart rate using a percentage of your client’s heart rate maximum (HRmax), which can be predicted by subtracting your age from 220, or by measuring your heart rate while performing a maximum exercise test.
When the workout goal is to increase aerobic endurance (most useful!), the target heart rate should be 65 to 80 percent of HRmax (about 55%-70% of HRR). During interval training, which focuses on increasing cardiovascular performance, the target heart rate should be greater than 80 percent of HRmax (70% of HRR).
