I monitor my heart rate when I exercise but I am not sure why. What should I be measuring?


First, you have to measure your resting heart rate. Your resting heart rate can be used as an index of your general level of aerobic fitness. It is a good idea to know what your resting heart rate is now, because as you become more fit, your resting heart rate is going to drop. Keep a record of it.

This chart will give you a good indication of what your heart rate should be during aerobic exercise. Your rate should be roughly 50% to 85% of your maximum heart rate during your workout.
