What it is? Why it’s important to know? How to figure it out?

Resting Heart Rate A measure of the heart rate following a period of inactivity Find your carotid artery (artery in your neck that is often used to find your pulse) Start counting beats when I tell you We will go for 30 seconds and take that number and times it by 2 to find your RHR

Maximum Heart Rate The highest heart rate capable by the human body
220 – your age = Maximum Heart Rate

Target Heart Rate Your target heart rate is a range of how many beats per minute your heart is beating that you try to get to and then stay in for a certain amount of time. This range is targeted so that your body is getting enough of a workout to get stronger, but without overdoing it.

Finding your Target Heart Rate Zone
Step 1 220 -____ (My age) _____ Answer one (Circle this answer – this is your MHR)

Finding your Target Heart Rate Zone
Step 2: Take the circled number and multiply it by .6 Answer one____ X .6 _______ ___________Answer two (rectangle around this answer)

Finding your Target Heart Rate Zone
Step 3: Take the number with the circle around it (MHR) and multiply it by .85 Answer one____ X .85 _______ ___________Answer two (Triangle around this answer)

Write the following statement:
My target heart rate zone is between _______ (insert # with a rectangle around it, which is 60% of your MHR) and _______ (insert # with a triangle around it, which is 85% of your MHR).
