Target Heart Rates

Target Heart Rates


Pulse rates vary from person to person. Your pulse is lower when you are at rest and increases when you exercise (because more oxygen-rich blood is needed by the body when you exercise). Not exercising at the correct target heart rate may contribute to the fact that people do not achieve the results they were looking for during their exercise program such as fat burning. Knowing your target pulse can help you evaluate your exercise program.


Don’t worry about monitoring your heart rate constantly. Instead take your heart rate two to three times during workout. Average the three together to see if you have maintained your target heart rate throughout.
