What should it be? Like for a 20 minute session...should I get my heart rate right up to a certain point in the beginning and then maintain it, or work my way up to a certain bpm? Any input is appreciated.

If you're asking about HIIT, it's an individual thing depending on the person's age and fitness level . My routine is to get my heart rate up to 130-135 bpm for 5 minutes and then go high intensity for 1 minute to get my heart rate up to 155+ bpm. I then back down to 130-135 bpm for 5 minutes to recover and then go high intensity again. I do this for 30-35 minutes.

220 - (your age), then 60 to 80% of that number.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.
