For beginners in sports

unsureCongratulations! You decided to take more care of Your health, to try something new, to become more conscious of Your body, to spend more time with Yourself and maybe with other people in new sporty circumstances, to do something pleasant and healthy.

How to do it well? Where is the border between too light and too vigorous training? Between being too tired, being bored and feeling creative tiredness which ensures You that You spent Your workout time productively, that You have enough strength to continue Your day, that You became healthier and stronger?

Which sport aims help You to develop Yourself physically and mentally and which extensively fatigue You and which relax You making You rather rest than train during workouts?

There are different ways to answer these important especially for beginners questions. You may ask Your trainer or more experienced colleagues for a piece of advice. You may adopt practices of other people or even sportsmen. You may develop Your knowledge on the issue and try to use it in practice. You may learn how to listen to Your body (tiredness, excitement, willingness to continue or to stop).

One of the most scientifically based methods is measuring Your heart rate continuously during workouts. You can easily determine Your heart rate zones (such as maximal, resting, aerobic, anaerobic etc. heart rate) and check in which heart rate zone You are.

Prevent overtraining and overfatigueMiHR

In this way You will avoid such usual mistakes of the beginners that are willing to quickly become healthier and stronger and spend too much time in maximum heart rate zone and are constantly exhausted, angry and even may injure themselves. You will not feel frustration due to the fact that the trainings do not make a difference because they are too light.

By monitoring your exercise intensity with your HRM, you can see if your workout is vigorous enough to make a differenceMiHR

Some people naturally tend to be more ambitious, some prefer easy and free conditions. Even knowing one’s habits and willing to do the opposite it is not difficult to make a mistake – to overstrain oneself or underfulfil the rational aims.

The impartial numbers of Your heart rate zones can be good advisers how to spend Your training time, which aims to pursue, how actively to move.

For having heart condition


Our health may need special attention in some fields. It may be our heart that asks us to consult with cardiologist, to be aware of our heart’s condition, to check the heartbeat throughout the day, to take some actions if it is too high. Of course each person still needs to do exercises, to train one’s body. People having heart condition should train their body with due caution, which suggests tracking their heart rate during workouts.

Sometimes being aware of one’s every day heart rate and making every effort to normalize it may be very important investment.

Unfortunately, not everybody is aware of it and according to a recent oldmanresearch (Norway) for every 10-beat rise in resting heart rate, the risk of dying from a heart attack rose by 18 percent in women and by 10 percent in men.

Your heart is one. It is worth Your attention.

For willing to control one’s level of stress

dutyYour heart rate can show not only the level of Your physical activity, but also the extent of Your mental and emotional burden. While performing diverse duties we experience stress. It happens that the requirements are so high and the effort is so intensive that stress is persistent. Sometimes one may not pay attention to his or her own needs and not recognize the signals given by his or her own body. That may be dangerous and cause serious health problems.comfort2

You can check Your heart rate during everyday activities to ensure Your body tolerates the extend of duties You perform. In case Your heart rate is higher than it should be You can always make Your life slower, reduce the amount of work, decide to act more health friendly in difficult situations.

How to determine Your heart rate zones

Different ways may lead to the same place. Similarly You can determine Your heart rate zones differently.

Firstly You can count Your maximum heart rate. Just subtract Your age from 220. For example if You are 50, Your maximum heart rate is 220 – 50 = 170 beats per minute.

There is the table presented by American Heart Association

Age Target HR Zone 50-85% Average Maximum Heart Rate, 100%
20 years 100-170 beats per minute 200 beats per minute
30 years 95-162 beats per minute 190 beats per minute
35 years 93-157 beats per minute 185 beats per minute
40 years 90-153 beats per minute 180 beats per minute
45 years 88-149 beats per minute 175 beats per minute
50 years 85-145 beats per minute 170 beats per minute
55 years 83-140 beats per minute 165 beats per minute
60 years 80-136 beats per minute 160 beats per minute
65 years 78-132 beats per minute 155 beats per minute
70 years 75-128 beats per minute 150 beats per minute

Secondly You may check Your maximum heart rate by the following test. It is quite exhausting. If You are not sure about Your health condition, please consult it with Your doctor.

You should be rested and recovered. Please spend 15 minutes warming up. During the first third of this time Your training should be very light. The next two thirds should be more intensive, but the effort should still be moderate. Then for about two minutes or less make maximum physical efforts You can. You should try to reach the limit of Your exercise tolerance (being careful of course). During these time of maximum efforts You should measure Your heart rate. Then add five points to the maximum received number. This is Your maximum heart rate, which is needed to define Your target heart rate. The latter depends on the aim You pursue during Your workouts.

There are two main types of workouts for people not being a professional sportsmen: aerobic (cardio) and weight control (fat burn) trainings.

Aerobic (cardio) trainings (70-80% of maximum heart rate) improve person’s endurance, strengthen respiratory and cardiovascular system, develop one’s muscles.

Weight control (fat burn) training should be at 65-70% of Your maximum heart rate and starts after 20-40 minutes of Your training. During it Your body metabolizes fat as a fuel source. The best way to lose one’s weight is to train in this heart rate zone.

In order to define the heart rate for aerobic (cardio) training You should multiply Your maximum heart rate received in the first or second way (above) by 0.7 or 0.8. More information can be found there.

To find out which is Your heart rate during weight control (fat burn) training please multiply Your maximum heart rate by 0.65 or 0.69. More information can be found there.

In the beginning You should avoid anaerobic (hardcore) training zone (80-90% of Your maximum heart rate), since your body removes lactic acid slower than produces it and You may feel pain in Your muscles some time after training.

If You train in Your target heart rate zone for a period of time You become familiar with the effort You should take in order to be in this zone.

As You can see, checking Your heart rate during Your trainings is really beneficial.

Heart rate zones can be also easily checked in MiHR app downloaded from:
