I'm a newbie, and I was wondering what my heart rate should be when working out. When I'm done with my work out I usaully jump on the treadmill for a quick 1mile walk. And my heart rate said 150 today. I thought that was kinda high for a cool down? any help would be appreciated. Thank you
Oh there are so many theories on this. So very very many.
I will put in a push for the percieved exertion method which is you should spend the BULK of your exercise at a range where you can talk smoothly but your breathing is very noticible - where any faster and talking would be effort and do intervals into the "can talk but really dont want to" arena.
