Enter your average workout heart rate (BPM) and the total workout time (min) into the Workout Recovery Time Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Workout Recovery Time. 

Workout Recovery Time Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Workout Recovery Time.

WRT = (HR * WT)/200

Variables:

  • WRT is the Workout Recovery Time (hours)
  • HR is the average workout heart rate (BPM) 
  • WT is the total workout time (min) 

How to Calculate Workout Recovery Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Workout Recovery Time.


  1. First, determine the average workout heart rate (BPM). 
  2. Next, determine the total workout time (min). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = WRT = (HR * WT)/200.
  4. Finally, calculate the Workout Recovery Time.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

average workout heart rate (BPM) = 160

total workout time (min) = 30

WRT = (HR * WT)/200 = ?
