    Heart rate:- Heart rate is directly correlated to the aerobic system. This is because it is our heart that pumps the oxygen to our working muscles. It makes sense, then, that the higher our heart rate, the higher our VO2. These ratings are given in relation to percentage of our maximum heart rate. Our maximum heart rate is roughly determined using the equation: Maximum Heart Rate = 220 - age If our heart rate is between: Resting - 70% maximum HR The aerobic system is being used. Typical for light activities such as walking, slow jog, etc. We also say the aerobic system is working in recovery mode - at this level the aerobic system has the ability to replenish PC and is breaking down lactic acid. 70-85% maximum HR Here the aerobic system is being used to supply the energy for working muscles - i.e. a fast jog or run. It is still submaximal. 85+% maximum HR
