Calculate your heart rate for weight loss training
Everyone knows that sport is our friend and helper in gaining a beautiful figure, building muscles, improving physical condition and physique. But not everyone knows that we train differently for different beats.
Heart rate zones in cardio training
There are four main heart rate zones: recovery zone (aka active recreation zone), fat burning zone, target heart rate zone (aka aerobic zone) and anaerobic threshold zone (maximum effort zone).
The lower the heart rate, the lower the training intensity. Low and medium intensity cardio in the recovery and fat burning zone is characterized by constant intensity and long duration of the work performed - brisk walking, exercise on a stationary bike and on an elliptical trainer (calorizer). Aerobic training in the target heart rate zone can also be done with cardiovascular equipment.
During an aerobic exercise, you not only burn calories, but also exercise your heart. Sometimes aerobic cardio training requires special skills, such as step aerobics, dancing, skating, skiing.
Training in the anaerobic threshold zone is suitable for well-trained people. You can increase intensity to this level during high-intensity interval training, which alternates between short periods of maximum and recovery.
Heart rate calculation example
Consider the calculation of the heart rate for the fat burning zone (FBL):
220 - age = A
Lower limit: B = A x 0.65
Upper limit: C = A x 0.85
You are 30 years old. Then:
220 - 30 = 190
Lower bound: 190 x 0.65 = 124
Upper bound: 190 x 0.85 = 162
In this case, SHS: is in the intervals between 124-162 beats per minute.
For beginners, very fat people and people with heart problems, the following is important. To get rid of extra calories and not harm your body, you need to monitor your heart rate (calorizator). The pulse should not go beyond the fat burning zone (FBL). For example, for a thirty-year-old woman, the working heart rate interval during exercise for fat burning should be in the range of 124-162 beats per minute.
Most cardiovascular equipment allows you to track your heart rate. You just need to put your hands on the metal handles to see the number of beats per minute on the display of the simulator.
Subjective methods of assessing the intensity of cardio
If there is neither a simulator nor a heart rate monitor - you train at home or on the street, you can navigate by sensations. The pace of movement should be such that you can pronounce a phrase of 5-6 words, that is, the load should be moderate or moderately light.
You can determine the intensity of the load using the following data:
Very easy - you keep the conversation going without problems
- Easy - you speak with minimal effort
- Slightly higher than light - You are having a little tension in the conversation
- Higher than easy - it becomes more difficult for you to speak
- Moderate - It takes effort to keep the conversation going
- Moderately high - it is more difficult for you to pronounce words
- Very high - it is difficult for you to talk
- Intense - You are unable to speak
There is also an easy way to find out your heart rate - count 10 seconds, count your heart rate and multiply by 6. This will give you the number of heart beats per minute.
Each type of workout has its own benefits. Heart rate is a great way to control your intensity and your condition. However, it is important to keep in mind that for training in the target heart rate zone and for HIIT, it is necessary to set aside 5-10 minutes for low-intensity warm-up and cool-down in the fat burning and recovery zone.
