Being aware of your HR as an indication of Cardio Health & Ability is important.  For adults the average heart rate at rest is 60-100 beats per minute. 100 is on the high side, which puts you at risk for heart attack & stroke; so a resting heart rate below 90 is ideal.


When you wake up after a peacrful nights sleep before getting out of bed is the best time to obtain your resting heart rate. This can be done by placing your 1st two fingers (don't use your thumb as it has it's own pulse) on the underside of your wrist or your jugular (neck) artery & applying gentle pressure until you feel your heart beat. Count the beats for 60 seconds and you have your resting heart rate.


My resting hr is 48. Although that sounds on the low side that is actually a great heart rate.  The more fit you are, the less power and beats it takes to pump blood through your body and the less work, wear and tear is placed on your heart! The more you exercise and the better you eat the lower your heart rate will be. 

When working out you want to reach your target heart rate in order to receive the cardiac benifits of your exercise. That is why I try to give you minimum speed parameters on the cardio machines. If you are going too slow & not reaching your target heart rate (which is between 50-85% greater than your resting heart rate)you may as well be sitting on ya behind.


Reaching your maximum heart rate is great, that means you are getting it in...but you only want to be in this heart rate zone for a couple of minutes at a time other wise you run the risk of over working your heart & going into cardiac arrest. This is what happens when we see healthy kids who fall out on basketball courts or football fields.


Use your heart rate as a guideline as to how hard you are working. If you fall below your target you need to speed it up. At your target in considered Aeorobic (with breathing like when power walking). At or above maximum for more than 2 minutes is considered Anaeorobic (without breathing or gasping like sprinting) you can slow it down!

Below is a chart of guidelines to assist you in finding your target and maximum active heart rate. I obtained my heart rate manually, with my pedometer/watch and on the treadmill today and they were all within a few beats, so all were pretty accurate.




Age Target HR Zone 50-85% Average Maximum Heart Rate, 100%


20 years 100-170 beats per minute 200 beats per minute


30 years 95-162 beats per minute 190 beats per minute


35 years 93-157 beats per minute 185 beats per minute


40 years 90-153 beats per minute 180 beats per minute


45 years 88-149 beats per minute 175 beats per minute


50 years 85-145 beats per minute 170 beats per minute


55 years 83-140 beats per minute 165 beats per minute


60 years 80-136 beats per minute 160 beats per minute


65 years 78-132 beats per minute 155 beats per minute


70 years 75-128 beats per minute 150 beats per minute
