Hmm, there are various calculations and formulae. The one deemed most accurate is HRmax = 205.8 − (0.685 × age). Target heart rate should be 65 - 85% of HRmax.


Ugly duckling going Swan.
Took this from Jane Fonda. Try this.

Deduct your age from 220.

Divide that answer by 100.

Times that answer by 75.

This should give you a rough answer for 75% max heart rate in BPM. For losing weight you should be looking at between 70% and 85%.
