Raise Your Heart Beat to Its Ideal Fat Burning Range

Increasing your heart rate is the fastest way to lose weight and reach optimal health. The ideal range is 60 to 70% of your maximum heart beat. If you can stay within that range you are most likely to lose weight and maximize your cardiovascular benefits.

You can figure out your optimal fat burning zone by the following formula (Max Heart Rate = 220 – your age) X (.60 for lowest range and .70 x for highest range).

Lets take mine for example:

220-43=177 is my maximum heart beat.
177 X.60=106 is my lowest fat burning range.
177 X .70=124 is my high fat burning range.

Thus my goal is to be between 106-124 heart beat range to burn as many fat calories as I can. When I work out I can seek to maintain this level. If you measure your heart beat regularly you can get a feel for how much effort you need to put it.

It can be difficult to get up to this level if you are not used to it. Sometimes it can be difficult to get that at the gym so you may need to add swimming, jogging, boxing, or some type of rotation workout to maintain this level.
