how do you figure your out your maximum HR? (so that you can keep it at 65-70%)?
27 yrs. old, 190lbs, 8-9%bf.

Your maximum heart rate is calculated by subtracting your age from 220.
220 - Age = MHR
subtract your age from 220, then multiply this number by 0.60 for the low end of your target heart range, and by 0.90 for the higher range.
you should be around...
Maximum heart rate (beats/minute) 195
Target range (beats/minute) 117-146
