How do I monitor my heart rate during aerobics exercises?




Learn how to monitor your resting heart rate. This is the rate your heart is pumping when you are sleeping or sitting. It indicates your cardiovascular fitness level.

Know the normal resting heart rate. This is 15 to 20 beats per minute slower than your typical heart rate. Someone who can function in prime aerobic activity usually has a lower resting heart rate.

Find your working heart rate. Elevate your heart rate at an aerobic level. Keep monitoring your heart rate throughout the aerobic session. Gradually increase your working heart rate into a range that is maintained for the 20 to 30 minutes required to assure an aerobic level and an adequate workout.

Monitor your working heart rate for 6 seconds after the intense part of the workout in the aerobics class. Multiply this number by 10 to determine the number of beats per minute.

Establish the recovery heart rate. The recovery heart rate is taken for 15 seconds 5 to 6 minutes after the last aerobic activity. Multiply this number by 4 to determine the number of beats per minute. If your recovery heart rate is above 120 beats per minute you should lower your workout level for the next class.
