EXAMPLE: For male age 40 with HRrest of 72 beats per minute
Here is an example completed calculation (Heart Rate Reserve Method or Karvonen Formula) used in the form above to calculate Target Heart Rate (THR) for apparently healthy individuals. The example shows a calculation of 50 to 85% Heart Rate Reserve):

HRmax = 220 - 40
= 180 beats per minute

Heart Rate Reserve =
180 - 72 = 108 (built in to the equations below):

THR50% Heart Rate Reserve = (180 - 72) * .50 + 72 = 126

THR85% Heart Rate Reserve = (180 - 72) * .85 + 72 = 164

THR Range = 126 to 164 beats per minute
================

MORE DETAILS:

Maximal Heart Rate (HRmax):
Males 220-age
Females 226-age

Standing Resting Heart Rate (HRrest): Take pulse; record per minute (6 seconds X 10, 15 seconds X 4, or one full minute)

Calculate Heart Rate Rate Reserve: HRmax - HRrest

Use the following equations to calculate the lower and upper ranges of the Target Heart Rate Range (in this case 50% lower and 85% higher range:

THR50% Heart Rate Reserve =
(HRmax - HRrest) * .50 + HRrest

THR85% Heart Rate Reserve =
(HRmax - HRrest) * .85 + HRrest
