On the chart above, you can find your age, and then slide over to the proper range for you to improve your conditioning, and/or fat loss.
You must be aware, that once you are no longer a “novice”, you must challenge yourself towards the “heavy intensity” side. As I mentioned before, HIIT (high intensity interval training), is optimal for conditioning and/or fat loss. HIIT takes your heart rate to 85-90% at its peak interval.
The higher your heart rate, the more calories are burned, and the EPOC is higher post-workout – leading to an elevated metabolism 24-36 hours after the workout is finished.
