Target Heart Rate Your maximum heart rate (MHR) is the maximum number of times your heart should beat in a minute while doing any physical activity. To calculate your MHR, subtract your age from 220. Chapter
Target Heart Rate Zone, cont. Your target heart rate zone is the range of heart rates in which you gain the most cardiorespiratory health benefits. To calculate your target heart rate zone, multiply your MHR by 60 percent (0.6) and 85 percent (0.85). These are the lower and upper limits of the range.
