when my elderly father began exercising, the doc checked his ejection fraction then said "go and do what you want, no limits - but stop if you have pain or irregular heartbeat".

Up until then, I'd wrongly assumed that max heart rate was an upper limit for safety. But it's really a physical limit or ceiling of what you can achieve - and a rough approximation at that.
