what you need to know about Fat burning heart rate:

Doctors clarify fat burning heart rate as the rate at which a person’s heart should beat per minute to achieve maximum fat burning results.

A person’s heart rate may indicate the intensity of the exercise or activity that they are doing. When you sit or be in rest , your heart rate is usually 60-100 per minute. This rate is a person’s resting heart rate. When a person exercises, their heart rate starts to increase. Your maximum heart rate is the highest heart rate you can achieve, often during high intensity exercises.

Medical professionals identify the following : The fat burning heart rate falls between these two extremes. The fat burning heart rate is based on the maximum heart rate. 

"To calculate the maximum heart rate, you should subtract their current age from 220. For example, a 40-year-old’s maximum heart rate would be 180 beats per minute. To calculate the fat burning heart rate zone, a person should determine the upper and lower limits. The upper limit is 70% of the maximum heart rate. The lower limit is about 50% of the maximum heart rate. Using the same example, a 40-year-old’s fat burning heart rate is between 90 (50% of 180) and 126 (70% of 180) beats per minute."  by Medical today News
