    Target Heart Rate for Lifting?

    I use a heart rate monitor and it really helps to keep me on track when I'm training. I know for cardio I try to keep my HR at about 70-80% but what should it be for when I'm lifting?

    Thanks

    You don't lift for hr. You get what you get and should be recovered before your next set. If your max is around 80%, that's not unusual for some lifts.

    What I used to look for was a decrease in hr over time on the more strenuous lifts. That and how quickly my hr would return to 110-120.

    No, a hrm isn't necessary for lifting, but it can give you useful information. Like max heart rate, average heart rate, and calories burned. Watching how fast your hr drops is an indication of heart health too (you'd like to see it drop down quickly).
