What Is Cardio?

A good cardio workout is designed to increase your heart rate to a target heart rate zone. The target zone varies from person to person, mainly defined by gender and age based on what’s known as the Karvonen formula.

Target Heart Rates:

  • A low intensity workout will have your heart rate between 60-70% of your max, it is good target range for warming up or beginners.
  • A moderate intensity workout will be 70-80% max heart rate, this is the ideal zone for losing weight or building fitness.
  • A high intensity workout will be between 80-90% max heart rate, this will greatly increase calorie burn but at a much higher required effort.
  • Maximum effort is 90-100% max heart rate, this level of training typically can only be sustained for short bursts and is generally only reached in advanced training.
