So I'm a little confused. Ya know how on the treadmills and ellipticals they'll have the range of heart rates that you should hit for your age? But that if you're a lower percentage of your max heart rate that's better for fat burn and if you're maxing your HR that's better for cardio? So I'm trying to lose weight...do I want to be in the higher end or lower end? If I don't get my heart rate up real good then I feel like I'm not getting a good work out. Any thoughts??
