    working out your max heart rate will involve a max heart rate test

    use a treadmill
    set to 6mph
    run for a minute
    up it to 7mph
    run for a minute
    up it to 8mph
    run for a minute
    etc

    at some point, you'll run out of ability to run any faster, or breathe, your max heart rate is not far from this

    you can also do this with stationary bike, or rower, etc, the important point is increasing the difficulty every so often
