Maximum Heart Rate

The maximum heart rate can be estimated using the commonly used formula of 220 minus your age in years (220-age), or a more accurate formula 208 - 0.7 x age (Tanaka et al., 2001).

These formula only give an estimation of maximum heart rate - ideally you should measure it. See the discussion on maximum heart rate. See also Heart Rate training ranges based on the Karvonen Formula.
