Optimal Heart Rate Training Zones
By exercising within your target training zone, you’ll achieve more in less time. Each zone offers different benefits. The most popular zone range is 50% to 80% of your maximum heart. This is where you achieve cardio benefits, burn fat, and become fitter. Your Omron Heart Rate Monitor is programmable so you can maintain your workout within your chosen zone. See the chart for percentages.
+ Health Maintenance–(65%-78%) Low-intensity level training. Good if you’re a beginner and strengthening your cardiovascular system.
+ Aerobic Exercise–(65%-85%) Increases strength and endurance. Burns calories faster and can be sustained during longer workouts.
+ Anaerobic Exercise–(78%-90%) Improves speed and power. This zone builds muscle faster, but cannot be maintained for long workouts.
