How to Figure Your Target Heart Rate
        Karvonen Heart Rate Formula

  • The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts. Click here to calculate your Target Heart Rate.
