0 is too low... Meaning you're dead.
HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR IDEAL TRAINING HEART RATE:
1. Subtract your age from 220
2. Subtract your resting heart rate
3. Divide by 2
4. Add your resting heart rate
Example of a 60 year old with a resting heart rate of 65:
220 - 60 =160
160 - 65 = 95
95 divide by 2 = 47.5
47.5 + 65 = 112
This person's ideal aerobic set training heart rate is 112.
(Your resting heart rate is what you have when you wake up in the morning before activity.)
