Hey readers, it's monday again and time to return to our workout.
All you know that when running, biking or doing anyother aerobic exercise our pulse is accelerating more or less. Inside this accelerations we should find a range wich we will be burning calories in an ideal way.
This range it's easy to calculate if we have a control of our heart rate, that because I recommend using a heart rate monitor.
The basic formula for calculating the minimum heart rate of this range is:
- (220 - age) x 0,6 = To the minimum pulse you should have when doing any aerobic exercise.
And the formula for calculating the maximum heart rate of this range is:
- (220 - age) x 0,85 = To the maximum pulse you should have when doing any aerobic exercise.
Doing exercises between this range will help you burning calories in an optimum way and having a better cardiovascular performance.
If your heart rate is less than the minimum calculated, you are too lazy and must do some more for burning fats. And if your heart rate is more than the maximum calculated, slow down, you are running out of oxygen and you are doing anaerobic exercise.
Also remember, the minimum time recommended is 20 minutes of exercises, but best results are when doing it about 30 or 40 minutes.
So it's time to monitor your heart rate! Are you doing it?
