How Long Does It Take To Get A Target Heart Rate?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
How long does it take to get a target heart rate? As of now I, 17, have a 179 average (active) heart rate. My target heart rate is apparently 144-170, but my real goal is just less than 100. I do 30 minutes of Cardie, HR of upper body workouts, HR of lower body workouts(mainly legs), and then another 30 minutes of mixed Cardie. I do this about 3 times a workweek and daily (7 times) a break week.
Answer: That question doesn't make much sense...Target heart rate is the range you would like to achieve, and maintain, while doing cardie to benefit most from your workout. If you re sprinting you could reach your target heart rate with one 100 yard sprint, if walking it may take significantly longer to reach your THAR. Having a goal THAR of less than 100 basically means you are not exercising hard enough. No matter how great of shape you are in, your THAR remains the same. The only difference is the better cardie shape you are in will increase the intensity level needed to achieve that rate. PS. 2 hours of weight training seven days a week is over training, it is counterproductive. I'm not sure what your weight regimen consists of but 7 days of upper and lower body training will not give your muscles time to recover. Lifting weights consists of breaking down your muscles during activity and then allowing them time to rebuild, it is at this time that they become stronger.
When You Easily Reach Your Target Heart Rate When Exercising, Does That Mean You Have A Low Metabolism?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
When you easily reach your target heart rate when exercising, does that mean you have a low metabolism? I am overweight, but I have been working out every day for a few weeks, and I always stay at my target heart rate for at least 30 minutes. I have to lose about 30-40 pounds. I have a friend who is in about the same shape as me, but she can work out really hard and still not reach her target heart rate. What does that mean? Does it have something to do with metabolism?
Answer: No actually it has nothing to do with metabolism. It really has to do with the shape that you are in and how hard you are working out. Is it possible that your workouts are more intense? Also, if she is a different weight, her target heart rate will be different. I get very annoyed with the whole thing because I am very muscular, therefore weigh more than the average person so my target rate is higher, despite the fact that I am in really good shape. I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. As long as you are satisfied with the results you are seeing and feel as if you have worked really hard at the end of each workout, that's whats important.
Can Exceeding Your Target Heart Rate During Aerobics Have A Detrimental Effect On Muscle Gain And Fat Loss?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
Can exceeding your target heart rate during aerobics have a detrimental effect on muscle gain and fat loss? I've heard that significantly exceeding your target heart rate during aerobic activities can have a detrimental effect (possibly stripping you of muscle and or retaining more fat) I am currently weight training four times per week (one day on one day off IE, Mon,wed,fri,sun) in the afternoon/eve and doing 30 minutes of cardie at my target heart rate for my age and weight five to six mornings a week in addition to following a six meal a day "glycemic index" type diet in an effort to gain/retain muscle while losing fat and generally increase my cardiovascular health.
Answer: Exceeding your THAR (target heart rate) in short bursts is actually probably not only safe, but good for you. IF you don't push a little every now and then, how can you expect to get better? I am not saying, however, to train above your THAR. Just don't worry about going a little higher every now and then. Also remember to reevaluate your THAR about every month or so based on your RUHR (resting heart rate)

Answer: your maximum heart rate is 202 BM however depending on whether you want to losing fat or increasing your cardiovascular endurance depends on your target heart rate. while exercising you should be working in two zones, either anaerobic or aerobic, anaerobic is 80-90% of your maximum heart rate and aerobic is 70-80% of your maximum heart rate. A healthy active person should have a resting heart rate of about 49-55 however this varies. your weight sounds normal and healthy for a Small frame and so you shouldn't try and lose any, if anything gain some muscle. this website is really good for calculating your heart rate and how to improve: http://www.brianmac.co.uk/hrm1.htm
How Do I Figure Out My Target Heart Rate?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
How do I figure out my target heart rate? I'm 5'7, 150 pounds, moderately fit. I want to lose some weight, don't know how to find target heart rate... I want to know what my heart rate should be for maximum fat burning..does that make sense?
Answer: How To Take Your Pulse: Typically, you can feel your pulse in your wrist, thumb side with palm facing up. Use the lightest touch possible to be able to feel the beat in your artery. Use your index and your middle finger. Don't use your thumb because your thumb has a pretty strong pulse in it and it might confuse your findings. I recommend in an aerobics setting where you are trying to determine your target heart rate, to count for 15 seconds in a healthy person and then multiple that number by 4 to obtain your heart rate. You're looking for a 60 second count. 220: This is the standard for Maximum Heart Rate. Each year of our life, this rate will decrease by one beat. The easiest way to find your maximum heart rate is to subtract your age from 220. Resting Heart Rate: To determine your resting heart rate, take your pulse before you get out of bed in the morning. Review "How To Take Your Pulse". Target Heart Rate Range: Beginning exercisers should work between 50% - 65%. More advanced exercisers may be comfortable in the 70% - 80% range. Remember: if you are uncomfortable, don't do it. If in doubt, ask your doctor. You should not begin an exercise program without first seeking advice from a qualified medical physician.
What Is The Danger Or Benefit Of Going Past Your Target Heart Rate?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
What is the Danger or Benefit of going past your target heart rate? I am a 36 yr old woman who quit smoking 6 months ago, and I have gained about 20 lbs, I have been going to the gym and working out for several months. I do find that my heart rate is very high(75-85%) after say 15 or 20 min of Moderate (3.0 mph on treadmill, 15 mph on bike) Cardie. I'm not sure if going above the target heart rate is a danger or will increase my work out benefit, or do I need to slow down even more when my heart rate goes above the 'zone'.
Answer: Congratulations on quitting!!! My son is a very respected member of the health & fitness community nationally & is my source of information. There is no benefit to working out above your heart rate zone. In fact, you are in danger of tearing down your heart muscle by doing this. I watched someone at a gym that I belonged to consistently exceed his target heart rate for a few years. I was able to tell this because his breathing was loud & labored during his cardie workout & when he was finished he would sweat profusely, breathe loud & labored & couldn't even speak. I was so concerned about him that I called my son who lived in another state & asked him about it. He advised me that there was really nothing I could do & that the fitness staff should make him aware of the danger he was putting himself in. I found out not long after I moved away to another state that this man had a massive heart attack at the gym one morning. How very sad!!! Please be careful. PS: This man was in his early S's & in fairly good shape too.
How Do You Best Achieve Target Heart Rate?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
How do you best achieve target heart rate? My resting rate is already in the mid 70's ( i'm 28, 5'4'' and approx. 138lbs). I know that it's best to work within a target heart rate however being that my resting is already high when I work out it shoots up quit a bit higher. The problem is that if I try to keep my heart rate lower when I work out I don't feel like I'm working out at all. I guess I just don't understand how the target heart rate thing works. Please help. Higher rate rate is normally good but only when you are in great shape, which I'm not yet. So hone I work out my heart rate shoots up to 180's-190's
Answer: Do you use caffiene? I know for my wife's heart rate is higher when she has a couple cups of coffee each day, both her resting HR and where her HR goes while she's working out. Someone told me a year of so ago that I could workout, burn calories and loose weight without spending my entire workout at 85 percent. That's all I ever new, crank it to the max and a good workout was one that made you sweat and feel it after you were done. I tried the advise of this person, spending the majority of my time in the 95 to 110 hr area, walking, yes, after 35 plus years of running, walking. I didn't get that burn from walking, actually felt like I was wasting my time on the treadmill but to my dismay. I was shocked, I began to drop weight, not fast, but steady. One of the big changes I noticed was that after working out at a lower HR I wasn't as hungry and didn't need to eat as often or much as when I was spending time at the height HR areas. This person explained it this way. Imagine you have a funnel where all your energy passes through when you work out, when you begin to work out hard your body begins to call for more of your energy stores to pass through that funnel at a faster re ate. You use up your limited stores of energy quicker and begin to feel fatigued, needing to replenish those supplies of energy---EAT more. If you workout at a moderate pace your are not calling for all those energy stores as quickly and you don't feel as fatigued or in need of eating like a horse after your finished. That said I still do vary my cardie workouts spending less time in the higher zones.
How Do I Calculate My "Target Heart Rate For Burning The Maximum Amount Of Fat During My Aerobic Exercise?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
How do I calculate my "Target Heart Rate for burning the maximum amount of FAT during my aerobic exercise? I am 32 years old and need to loose about lbs and I have found a gazillion different sites for calculating my Target Heart Rate. I'm really looking for some consensus here. Note: I just got a heart rate monitor for Xmas. Thanks Yahoo Family for any insite!
Answer: The easiest way is the "220 rule" Take your age and subtract it from 220..which is 188 Now, your TARGET rate should be around 75% of 188 MAX, which is 140 or so. This just means that your maximum heart rate should be no more than 140. There are a bunch of other ways to figure this out, but this is the easiest.
What Should My Target Heart Rate Be And Should I Buy A Heart Rate Monitor?From Diet & Fitness Forum:
What should my target heart rate be and should I buy a heart rate monitor? I'm 19 and I weigh about 160 lbs. I'm trying to achieve a certain target zone that would be most effective for calorie and fat burning in general. I checked on line and my max. heart rate is 201. What target heart rate should I aim for (i.e, what percentage of my max heart rate)? And should I buy a heart rate monitor CZ I find it difficult to measure it by just checking my pulse?
Answer: Best heart rate if you're going for slow cardie (30-60 minutes) is 70%. If you really want to burn fat, it's best to do intervals of exercise up between 80-90 percent for 30-60 seconds, followed by a cool down to around 65%, then back up, then cool down, etc... until you're exhausted. Also, heart rate monitors are always good if you find one that works.
