There are three traditional methods of calculating maximum allowable heart rate limits in conventional CR exercise programs when actual peak heart rates from an exercise stress test are not available: * Percent maximal heart rate (3) is obtained by calculating the patient's age-predicted maximum heart rate, or 220 minus the patient's age in years, then multiplying that value by 70% to 85%.

Multiply this -- the age-predicted maximum heart rate -- by 55 percent and 90 percent to calculate the lower and upper limits of the target heart rate.
This can be done by beginning the next work interval when the heart rate drops to 60 to 70% of the age-predicted maximum heart rate (220 - age = APMHR), though this method is not always practical when training a large group of athletes.
