Heart Rate Info

Monday, August 21, 2006

Just needing to put this down somewhere. I just read a bunch of articles about aerobic exercise and have figured out that my resting heartrate is 72 BPM and that I should stay between 140 and 160 BPM during at least 20 minutes of aerobic excercise (the time EXCLUDES the warm up and cool down times). That's between 23 to 25 beats per 10 seconds (that's how I usually count). So I need to stay at 25 beats per 10 seconds for at least 20 minutes a day. Easy, right??!?!?!? The articles said to give myself one day off a week. Oh Boy!!
