Monitor Your Resting Heart Rate

This Sparked Me!

Having a hard time exercising in your target heart rate zone? Maybe you need to check your resting heart rate! If you are getting regular cardio, your resting heart rate will decrease. Since your target heart rate is based on your resting heart rate, it's important to periodically check your resting heart rate and adjust your target heart rate as your resting heart rate decreases.
