I do think the monitors are a bit conservative on their rates. 220-42 = 178 as my max heart rate, but there are many times I am at 185-190 and feel fine, but do feel like I am doing a lot of work. When I am running I am very rarely under 175.

At 22, 160 sounds a bit low to be anaerobic. 90% of max is generally considered to be anaerobic, although I have seen some claim 85%. Max is 220 minus your age, so I would think 170+ as being zone 3.

So by doing the math, my target heart rate for exercise is supposed to be between 133-201. At this level, would anything below 133 be zone 1, 133-160 be around zone 2, and 160-200 zone 3?

Typically this would represent 'moderate' and 'vigorous', with 3 probably being towards the 'anaerobic' threshold.

1 is resting up to low intensity. 2 would be "target heart rate" and 3 would be high intensity. When you are working out, your best bet is to be in 2-3 for most of your workout. I am usually well into 3 most of the time. 2 seems fairly low. The actual heart rate zones will vary from person to person based on the info you put into your monitor.

I've been using my heart rate monitor, and I'm confused about what the rangers for the "zones" are. Anyone know the difference as in numbers? It uses zone 1, 2, and 3.
