210 - .65 * age is recommended MaxHr by ACSM. For you, 210 - 18 = 192. 192 - 19 = 173, so that is about 90% for you. If an athlete, and resting HR is, say 60, then heart rate reserve is 192 - 60 = 132. 13 points per 10%. Then 90% is 192 - 13 = 179; 192 - 26 = 166 = 80%. 85% of max HR for an athlete is a very strong training point. At 28, I could take mine to 205.

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.
