I'm 74, have angina and exercise four times per week for up to a total of about 5.5 hours.
8 years ago I had one Angina episode, subsequent angioplasty and stemting.
Also I take RAMIPRIL and BISOPROLOL FUMARATE
My normal exercise routine involves, walking on treadmill, indoor rowing and cycling on static. I also do a little weights circuit. I also exercise using a Heart Rate Monitor.
My question is about the use of the Monitor in respect of what limits I should set the Monitor to bearing in mind the effects of my drug regime.
The formula of 220-age for maximum heart rate is way too high given the control of heart rate by the drugs!
So, bottom line is:
What should my absolute training heart rate be given the conditions outlined above!
