A training heart rate range is established based on resting heart rate (RHR), which is subtracted from the maximal heart rate (MHR) to obtain the heart rate reserve (HRR).
DETERMINING Your Starting Point To achieve cardiovascular benefits, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends exercising three to five times per week (frequency) with a training heart rate of 60-85% of your maximum (intensity) for 20-60 minutes (time).
This means that your training heart rate or pulse should be kept between 153 and 126 beats per minute during exercise.
For example, using this formula, a fifty-year-old runner would have a MHR of 170 and would aim for training heart rates between 120 and 145.
You can calculate your maximum heart rate by subtracting your age from 220 -- so your theoretical maximum is 160 if you're 60 years old, and your training heart rate would be between 96 and 144.
Exercisers are encouraged to work at a pace they consider "moderately hard" to "somewhat hard"--a training heart rate range of 60 to 80 percent of their maximum heart rate.
