## What is the formula to calculate maximum heart rate?

You can estimate your maximum heart rate based on your age. To estimate your maximum age-related heart rate, subtract your age from 220. For example, for a 50-year-old person, the estimated maximum age-related heart rate would be calculated as 220 – 50 years = 170 beats per minute (bpm).

**How do you calculate BPM by hand?**

You can easily check your pulse on the inside of your wrist, below your thumb.

- Gently place 2 fingers of your other hand on this artery.
- Do not use your thumb because it has its own pulse that you may feel.
- Count the beats for 30 seconds; then double the result to get the number of beats per minute.

**How do you solve THR?**

THR is calculated by multiplying percent intensity by the MHR. Example: At 70% intensity THR = MHR x 0.70.

### How do you calculate maximum heart rate with RPE?

To calculate your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220. For example, if you’re 30 years old, your maximum heart rate would be 190.

**How accurate is 220 minus age?**

The traditional method by subtracting age from 220 to find maximum heart rate is less accurate than our HRmax Calculator. For older persons using “220 minus age” the estimated maximum heart rate could miss by 40 beats! Read more.

**What is the maximum heart rate of a teenager?**

What is a Typical Pulse?

Age Group | Normal Heart Rate at Rest |
---|---|

Children (ages 3-4 years) | 70 – 100 beats per minute |

Children (ages 5-7 years) | 65 – 100 beats per minute |

Children (ages 8-15 years) | 60 – 100 beats per minute |

Adults (ages 16-18+ years) | 60 – 100 beats per minute |

## Do athletes have a higher max heart rate?

It’s typical for athletes’ resting heart rate (RHR) to be lower at rest than the general population, for their maximum capacity to be higher, and for them to be able to do more work at a lower heart rate than an untrained person.

**How do you calculate heart rate using 1500?**

To use the 1500 method count the number of small squares between two consecutive R waves and divide 1500 by that number. A heart rate less than 60 beats per minute is called bradycardia.

**How do I calculate my child’s maximum heart rate?**

The common formula used to calculate adult maximum heart rate – 220 minus age – doesn’t apply for kids, says pediatric cardiologist Kenneth Zahka, MD. “It’s very common that children’s maximum heart rates, on average, are lower than what you get from the ‘220 minus your age’ equation,” Dr. Zahka says.
