Firstly work out your maximum heart rate with the formula: 220

What is your maximum heart? 205bpm (for a 15 year old)

Your aerobic zone is what percentage of your maximum HR? 60-80%

Therefore what is your aerobic target zone? 123 – 164bpm

Your anaerobic zone is what percentage of your maximum HR? 80-90%

Therefore what is your anaerobic target zone? 164-184.5bpm
