 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
Maximum heart rate is typically calculated by
 A 200 minus your age B 220 minus your age C 60 plus your age D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -You can estimate your maximum heart rate based on your age. To estimate your maximum age-related heart rate, subtract your 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).

Detailed explanation-2: -That simple formula allows fitness seekers and athletes alike to find out their maximum heart rate by simply subtracting their age from 220.

Detailed explanation-3: -The estimation of maximal heart rate (HRmax) has been a feature of exercise physiology and related applied sciences since the late 1930’s. The estimation of HRmax has been largely based on the formula; HRmax=220-age. This equation is often presented in textbooks without explanation or citation to original research.
