Review Unit 1, lesson 1.2, reading for a formula to calculate your lower - upper limit. Choose your lower to upper limit such as 70 - 85%. This depends on your goals. Some may not be in good shape and should start out to use 55 - 70% others may use up to 85%.
220 – age = Max heart rate
Max heart rate * 55% = lower limit
Max heart rate *70% = upper limit
220 - 47 = 173
173 * 65% = 112
173 * 85% = 147
If I am 47 yrs old when I exercise I will check my heart rate to be sure I'm within the upper and lower limit of my Target Heart Rate. If I am below 112, then I am out of my zone and need to speed up. If I am over 147, I am over my zone and need to slow down a bit.
