Health Tools > Results: Target Heart Rate
What Your Results Mean:

If you’re just starting an aerobic exercise regimen, you should aim for the lower end of the range and gradually increase the pace. If you're intensely training, you may want to aim for the upper end of the spectrum. Be aware that this range serves only as a guideline and applies to those in good health. The given range does not apply to those on heart medication or those with chronic health conditions such as asthma, heart disease, or hypertension. Please consult your personal healthcare professional to determine the range of target heart rates specifically appropriate for you.

You can measure your heart rate by measuring your pulse at your wrist or neck. To measure your wrist pulse, hold your hand palm-side up and place the pads of your index and middle fingers on the top of your wrist. To measure your neck pulse, place the same two fingers at the side of your neck. Find your pulse and count the number of beats for 10 or 15 seconds. Multiply that number by six or four, respectively, to arrive at your heart rate in beats per minute. The longer you count, the more accurate the calculated beats per minute will be.
