Red Beating Heart

How to track your Heart Rate during exercise: 
Take wrist pulse for 6 seconds and multiply by 10.
 
Here's how to figure your 'Target' heart rate: 
  220 minus your age = [A]
  [A] = Maximum heart rate
  70% = Ideal Fat Burning Heart Rate ([A] X .70)
  40% = Resting Heart Rate ([A] x .40)
 
To get the most effective results from this routine, modify your intensity level to train within your target fat burning heart rate (70%).
