In brief: Talk to your MD

Before you start, discuss it with your doctor. Normally, the good rule is the following: hr = (220 - age) x 0.
8 for exercise heart rate. Best luck!

In brief: Atrial fibrillation

We like to control resting rate with a fib to 80 -ish.
Exercise rate we try and tailor to the patient if they have a heart structural problem causing the afib. Generally tho not over140, but that again depends on the specifics for the patient.
