Little data is available recommending the adequate exercise level for physical fitness, so we hypothesized that the anaerobic threshold (AT) point is an ideal exercise level. We aimed to determine a new target heart rate formula for the adequate exercise training level in healthy subjects. This study first developed a new formula in 405 subjects (221 males, 184 females, mean age 48.9 +/- 12.3 years). The AT was determined during cycle ergometer exercise with continuous respiratory gas… CONTINUE READING
