Healthy Heart Exercise Principles

Go to the gym or do light exercises as much as you can everyday, e.g. use stairs instead of escalator or lift, and walk to your colleague instead of emailing or making a phone call. You will soon notice that it is not difficult to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Aim to make this a daily routine or at least 5 times a week. You may estimate your target exercise heart rate as follows:

Exercise Heart Rate = (170 – age) beats per minute

This formula can be used as a guide for beginners. People involved in regular physical activity are recommended to calculate target heart rate following the standard formula provided here.
