THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
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.
