# Karvonen Formula Calculator

Karvonen method is used to find the target heart rate when you exercise or work out based on heart rate reserve (HRR). The method was formulated by a Scandinavian physiologist. HRR is the difference between the maximum heart rate and resting heart rate. This online karvonen formula calculator is used to find the target training heart rate.

#### Formula:

h = r - m
h = 220 - a - r ( if , Gender is Male and Age given )
h = 226 - a - r ( if , Gender is Female and Age given )
s = m * p
k = h * p + r
**Where,**
h = Heart Rate Reserve
r = Resting Heart Rate
m = Maximum Heart Rate
a = Age
p = Table Percentage Value
s = Standard Value
k = Karvonen Value
This karvonen method for calculating target heart rate is beneficial for athletes, and those who willing to control weight.
