# Target Heart Rate Exercise Chart

Calculating your target heart is one of the methods used to show you the intensity you are working out at. It is recommended the you workout at an intensity of 50-85% of your max heart rate. The chart below is a simple way to figure out your target heart rate. Just find your age range and you will see your estimated target heart rate and maximum heart rate to get the best results.

 Your Age Target Range HR 50-85% Max Heart Rate 20 100-170 beats per minute 200 beats per minute 25 98–166 beats per minute 195 beats per minute 30 95–162 beats per minute 190 beats per minute 35 93–157 beats per minute 185 beats per minute 40 90–153 beats per minute 180 beats per minute 45 88–149 beats per minute 175 beats per minute 50 85–145 beats per minute 170 beats per minute 55 83–140 beats per minute 165 beats per minute 60 80–136 beats per minute 160 beats per minute

Here's the formula that was used to get the target heart rate range.

1.) 220 - age = estimated max HR

2.) estimated max HR x percentage you want to workout at (e.g.,50-85%) = target HR
