Your heart rate is the number of times your heart beats per minute. It can be measured using a heart rate monitor or manually checking your pulse.
Your target heart rate for moderate-intensity exercise should be between 64% and 76% of your maximum heart rate. [Source: CDC.Gov]
Your target heart rate for vigorous exercise should be between 77% and 93% of your maximum heart rate. [Source: CDC.Gov]

Using the Karvonen method, which considers your resting heart rate into account, you might calculate your target heart rate zone.
Your resting heart rate is the number of times your heart beats per minute when you are at rest.
During exercise, if you feel lightheaded, short of breath, or experience chest pain or discomfort, stop exercising and seek medical attention.
It is important to note that your target heart rate can vary depending on factors such as your fitness level, medications, and overall health.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet can help improve your heart health, lower your risk of heart disease, and promote a healthy weight.
