  • Heart Rate Reserve x .75 = __ + Resting Heart Rate = Beats Per Minute
** Resting Heart rate - you should take your pulse for 1 minute when you have been laying still for 30 minutes
** The beats per minute you get from C and D are your target heart rate threshold on which your heart rate should stay in between during exercise
