  • Well you would first need to find out what your Maximum Heart Rate and then from that you can find out your target training zone. An easy way to calculate your Maximum Heart Rate is to subtract your age from 226 for women to calculate your Maximum Heart Rate (mhr). Your training zone for warm up should be 50 - 60% of maximum heart rate, your training zone for Fitness Zone (Fat Burning) should be 60 - 70% of maximum heart rate, for Aerobic Zone (Endurance Training) --- 70 - 80% of maximum heart rate. An exercise duration of anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes is ideal for fat loss. Of course, when you’re starting out, you might not be able to go for that long a period of time. In such cases it is best to build up slowly from 20 minutes up to that amount of time. And while you’re doing that, monitor your heart rate and adjust your intensity level accordingly. Don't forget to include weight training...Muscle Burns Fat!!
