Maximal heart rate (HRmax)

The highest heart rate an individual can achieve during an exercise session. A commonly accepted estimate of maximal heart rate is 220 minus age.

Age-related maximal heart rate is determined by subtracting the person’s age from 220. For example, for a 50-year old person, the estimated maximum age-related heart rate would be calculated as 220 – 50 years = 170 beats per minute (bpm).
