the student is 20 years old; resting heart rate is 70 bpm.

Purpose: To identify a target heart rate zone which is safe
for you to maintain and achieve a training effect.

LOWER LIMIT
UPPER LIMIT

1. Determine the maximum heart rate according to the given age.
(220-age=max heart rate)"MHR".

=  
2. Determine the resting heart rate. (Take pulse for six seconds then add a zero- prior to any exercise). SUBTRACT RHR from MHR. -    -   
=   =  
3. Multiply the percentage for the given limit with the answers on
Line A. (Lower Limit=60% or 0.60; Upper Limit=90% or 0.90).
4. Add the original RHR figure back into the equation.
Then place the answer on Line B.
6. ROUND the answers from Line B.
a. Round the numbers UP if the number
after the decimal point is 5 or greater.
i.e. 124.7=125
b. Round the numbers DOWN if the number
after the decimal point is 4 or lower.
