This calculator determines the approximate Basal Metabolic Rate of a
human body at rest. This is an approximation and will slightly vary
depending on the amount of lean mass of the body. This calculator will
underestimate the metabolic rate for an extremely lean body and will
over-estimate the metabolic rate of an extremely obese body:
What is Target Heart Rate?
The American Heart Association recommends an exercise target
heart rate of 50% to 75% of the maximum target heart rate for adults.
The maximum target heart rate can be estimated with the
Target Heart Rate Formula:
Maximum Target Heart Rate = 220 - Age
