Depends: A formula widely accepted is 220-age=maximum heart rate. Keep in mind though that this is a simplistic formula with age as the only variable and standard deviation for this equation is 10 to 15 bpm. Target heart rates for aggressive cardioconditioning are generally recommended at 80% of your calculated maximum for a healthy individual. See your first GP to discuss any possible contraindications ...Read more

Are you burning muscle if you go above your target heart rate?

Are you burning muscle if you go above your target heart rate?

No: There is no such thing as "target heart rate." depending on your training goals, the "target" could be anything from 60% to 100% of your max heart rate. Exceeding ~80-84% of max heart rate shifts metabolism to anaerobic (airless) metabolism resulting in the production of Lactic Acid and the burning sensation. The body is burning pure glucose here. Muscles break from overuse, not that process. ...Read more
