Training Heart Rate Range. To determine your THRR, take percentages of your HRR and add them to your RHR.

Steady-state cardio, also called "Zone 2" work, can be described as 65-70% of max heart rate, or 120-140 BPM (beats per minute). Going for an easy 20 to 40 minute jog, biking, or rowing two to three times per week is more than enough to reap the benefits.
A pulse rate of 74 bpm is normal and is of no concern if there are no symptoms and the EKG shows no evidence of new conduction abnormality (type 2 or 3 heart block).
Another widely accepted method to determine your training zones is this formula. It’s a little more complicated: The formula is: ((MHR– RHR) x % intensity) + RHR = Training Zone. 182 (my max) – 40 (my RHR) = 142.
