Gellish et al derived several equations for predicting the maximal heart rate in healthy adults during exercise. The authors are from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
heart rate maximum in beats per minute =
= 206.9 - (0.67 * (age in years))
= 191.5 - (0.007 * ((age in years)^2))
= 163 + (1.16 * (age in years)) - (0.018 * ((age in years)^2))
