So if I did this right it should be something like this?
220 - 31(age) = 189
189 - 72 (resting heart rate) = 117
117 * 65% (low end of heart rate) OR 85% (high end) = 76.05 OR 99.45
76.05 + 65 (resting heart rate) = 141.05
99.45 + 65 (rhr) = 164.45
The target heart rate zone for me is 141-165

As Ray points out the Karvonen method is an alternative to the regular 220 - age formula.
220 - 47(age) = 180
197 - 42 (resting heart rate) = 138
132 * 65% (low end of heart rate) OR 85% (high end) = 89.7 OR 117.3
85.8 + 65 (resting heart rate) = 131.7
112.2 + 65 (rhr) = 159.3
The target heart rate zone for me is 132-159
That's not exactly correct. With either the HRR or straight percentage method you still need to find out your max and resting HR's in order to get the most benefit from HRM training.
