In brief: 220-your age
You can easily find your target heart rate (thr) with this simple method.
Subtract your age from 220 (226 for women) to calculate your maximum heart rate (mhr).

In brief: 220-age
Age predicted hr 220-age =100%.
We use atleast 85% of that for our stress tests. If you are young you can go up to 100% of your age predicted hr.
