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.) (click above for an easy to use calculator and figure it out there...)
