The heart rate zone that is often recommended for burning fat is the “fat-burning zone,” which typically ranges from 60-70% of your maximum heart rate. This heart rate zone is thought to be optimal for burning fat because the body relies on fat as a primary fuel source during lower intensity exercise.
However, it’s important to note that the idea of a specific “fat-burning zone” is a bit of a myth. While exercising in this heart rate zone may lead to a higher percentage of calories burned from fat, exercising at a higher intensity will generally result in a greater total number of calories burned, which can ultimately lead to greater fat loss.
It’s also worth noting that the most effective way to burn fat is to combine exercise with a healthy, balanced diet.
