Re: question about exercise heart rate...

Remember that there is considerable individual variation in maximum heart rate. Your actual maximum heart rate may be significantly higher or lower than 220 minus age (which is based on population averages). Your target heart rate zones in percentages of maximum may also vary from the commonly given ranges.
