MAximal HR.: In the absence of your beta blocker (Inderal), your max HR would be around 170, and your exercise target would then be around 120 or 130. Beta blockers blunt the HR-increasing effect of exercise, so you may notice it’s harder to get up that 120-130 range. As another gauge, your cardio should be intense enough that you feel winded but are still able to carry on a conversation with sentences.
