How to Determine Your Max Heart Rate

For many athletes, it is important to know if you're working at your maximum heart rate. An article posted by Rodale Wellness shows us the best way to achieve your maximum heart rate.

HIIT YOUR OPTIMAL WORKOUT LEVEL! The common formula for obtaining your maximum heart rate is to subtract your age from 220. However, I highly recommend using a heart rate monitor, as it's very difficult to accurately measure your heart rate without one. A sign that you're giving it enough effort is when you're gasping for breath and feel like you couldn't possibly go on another few seconds. Remember, the more intense your exercise, the less time you have to spend on it.
