    My resting heart rate is around 80, which seems to throw the formula off for the "target" heart rate. Not sure how this would work even for a person with a resting heart rate of 70, which would be average for a male?? Anyway you slice the numbers, it seems to be off.

    this is the best part

    When you are training, don't forget the most important muscle: your heart. Not only is it an indicator of health, it is a tool that can help to improve your health. Instead of relying on cookie-cutter formulas, you can use your heart as an interactive gauge to tailor your workouts to your own unique body. Learn that the heart matters and use the powerful information it provides to build your peak physique.

    Great article! I've been considering getting a heart rate monitor & really enjoyed reading this article.

    Resting Heart Rate

    I just got back from having an EKG, for a pre-op appointment. The tech doing the EKG was surprised that my Resting Rate was 52.

    The anesthesiologist came back in and after discussing my activity with her; she stated that I have trained my heart to rest at a lower rate...

    I have a personal trainer 3 days a week, intense workout for approximately 1.5 hours on those days. I walk 4-6 miles 2 nights a week. I also have been running in 5K races...

    What do you think?

    Thanks, Cindy

    Great article. This is pretty much how I have been training, due to enjoying how it feels when I listen to my body versus when I try to follow rigid guidelines. Thanks for a well-written, enjoyable article.
