Did you know that the optimal heart rate for burning body-fat is 80% of your heart's maximum capacity?
There is an easy way to figure out how to get the most out of your cardiovascular workout.
Here is a simple formula to calculate your perfect target heart-rate so you can maximize your fat burning potential:
220 - (Your Age) = (X) * .8 = Your perfect zone
Example: 220 - 35 = 185 * .8 = 148 beats per minute
Tip - If you also do some type of weight training 'ALWAYS' do your cardio workout afterward.
Reason - During a weight training session you burn muscle glycogen. This will leave your body searching for an alternate source of fuel when it comes time to power thru your cardio workout.
This alternate fuel will come directly from fat storage, thus helping you burn more body-fat at a quicker rate.
