The best time to determine your resting heart rate is before getting out of bed in the morning after waking naturally (without an alarm or other source). If you never wake naturally, you can use your heart rate after sitting down and relaxing for at least 5 minutes. Use your index and middle finger to find your pulse at the side of your neck or on your wrist and count the number of heart beats for 10 seconds or 1 full minute. Do this for 3 to 5 mornings (they do NOT need to be consecutive mornings) and enter your results here.
If you counted heart beats for 10 seconds, enter the results in this column.
If you counted heart beats for 1 minute, enter the results in this column.
Your average resting heart rate for 10 seconds and 1 full minute. As your fitness level improves this number will drop.
An interpretation of your cardiovascular fitness level based on your average resting heart rate.
