%Maximal Heart Rate Calculator
This calculator tests the findings of Robergs and Landwehr (2002). Using age to predict Maximal Heart Rate you will be able to compare your actual "real-life" Maximal Heart Rate against the formulae of various researchers. Once you have used it or if you know of other %MHR formulae, then contact me with your feedback and suggestions. Members please leave your feedback in the Forum entitled "Training Tips".
The best and safest way to discover your maximal heart rate is to have a Graded Exercise Test (GXT) in a hospital setting where your ECG and blood pressure is monitored throughout the test by medical professionals.
