What does heartrate have to do with calories being burned?
- BenLv 41 decade agoFavorite Answer
The lower your heart rate the better (in general)/ When your heart rate goes up your heart is working harder and you are burning more calories. If you and a partner jog for 15 minutes, it is more healthy for you if you have the lower heart rate (because this means your heart is stronger). But having a stronger heart doesn't necessarily mean more calories burned.
