What is a normal heart rate for a 185-pound, 30-year-old woman?

At 30, your estimated max heart rate is 180 beats per minute. Ideally, you should try to achieve 75 percent-95 percent of this max during exercise, which equates to a range of 135-171 beats-per-minute.

Resting heart rate varies greatly from person to person depending on conditioning, lifestyle, and a number of other factors, but generally should be between 60-90 beats-per-minute.
