Normal Heart Rate: What's Healthy for Your Age and Fitness Level?


Your target heart rate should be between 64-76% while performing moderate-intensity physical activity.

To estimate your maximum age-related heart rate, you should subtract your age from 220.

Monitor your heart rate, breathing rate, strain, heart rhythms, HRV, continuous ECG and a lot more using Frontier X2.

So, if you are a 25-year-old, the estimated maximum age-related heart rate = 220-25 = 195 bpm.

– 64% of 195 = 124.8 bpm – 76% of 195 = 148.2 bpm

Thus, for a 25-year-old, during the exercise, the heart rate should be between 124.8 and 148.2 bpm (moderate-intensity).

For vigorous-intensity physical activity, the target heart rate should be in the range of 77% and 93%.

So, for a 35-year-old person with a maximum heart rate of 185 (220-35) bpm, the target heart rate can be

– 77% of 185 = 142.45 – 93% of 185 = 172.05

So, the range is between 142.25 and 172.05.

So, to do vigorous-intensity physical exercises, a 35-year-old person needs his heart rate to lie between 142-172.

It's important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting an exercise program.

A Heart Rate monitor can be a good tool to monitor your exercise intensity and adjust your workout accordingly.
