Knowing your maximum heart rate allows you to gauge the intensity and effectiveness of your exercise. The maximum heart rate for a person is calculated by subtracting your age from 220. If you aim for a vigorous workout, you should aim to hit 70% to 85% of your maximum heart rate. A moderate workout would be between 50% and 70% of your maximum heart rate. Among others, the Polar fitness device offers personalised heart rate-based training guidance. All you have to do is strap the band on your wrist snugly during your workout, and it will guide you to sustain or increase your heart rate for an aerobic workout.
