    Please provide a reminder of the suggested heartrate range for both HIIT and Intervals for those of us that are over 50. Thank you!

    Every individual is different, so I would recommend going based off of rate of perceived exertion instead of HR Range since one person’s high range of 165-170 for example might be someone else’s moderate range. Here is more info on how to gauge RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion): https://www.cdc.gov/physicalactivity/basics/measuring/exertion.htm

    I hope this helps! best of luck with the challenge 🙂

    Sherry,

    I too had asked this in the past (I’m 55). You can go down a rabbit hole too finding information on what percent you should be in for what level too. They’re all fairly close, this website does a pretty good job of explaining the different levels/percentages: https://www.verywellfit.com/heart-zone-training-3432619#:~:text=One%20of%20the%20easiest%20ways,subtracting%20that%20number%20from%20208.

    I’ve calculated all of mine and took a picture and have a cheat sheet so I can have the numbers for what we’re trying to accomplish! Good luck and I hope this helps and doesn’t make it more confusing.

    And always be aware of medications you may be on that lowers your pulse. Obviously, you won’t hit any of the targets.
