Use the chart above to determine your 15-second count. Choose the intensity level that is right for you:
60-70% = just beginning an exercise program
70-80% = at an intermediate fitness level
75-85% = at an advanced fitness level
TIPS ON TAKING YOUR HEART RATE WHILE EXERCISING:
moving while you're taking your heart rate. Your heart rate will drop within 15 seconds if you stop
Keep
moving!
Use your index and middle finger to take your pulse, not your thumb! (Your thumb has a pulse too, so
you may get confused if you use your thumb).
Where to find your pulse:
Wrist: Find the tendon running down the center of the inside of your arm. Take your pulse on
the thumb side of that tendon.
Neck: Take your pulse on the carotid artery on either side of your Adam's apple. Your carotid
artery is pressure sensitive, so don't press too hard! And don't take it on both sides at once!
If you have a hard time finding your pulse while exercising, find it before you go out to exercise and draw
an X on it.
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR 15-SECOND COUNT IS TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW:
Too Low: Pick up the pace of your exercise and swing your arms more to increase your heart rate.
Too High: Slow down your pace and/or use less arm motion to decrease your heart rate.
