Heart Rate Based Workout

This work out can be completed with your choice of cardio.  First, determine your maximum heart rate by using the equation 220 minus your age.  Once you have that number you will use the percentages below to determine the zones you should be in throughout the workout.   The intensity can be changed with speed, incline or both!
