  About Your Resting Heart Rate Average

-Your resting heart rate is a very good indicator of your  cardiovascular endurance . The more fit you are, the  lower  your resting heart rate will be. If you keep track of your average resting heart rate, the number will drop the more fit you become, certainly a healthy goal.

 A typical resting heart rate is around 60 - 80 beats per minute, while highly trained athletes may have resting heart rates closer to 40 BPM.

Well-known cyclist Lance Armstrong had a resting heart rate of 32 BPM!

Your average resting heart rate should be 15 to 20 BPM slower than your normal heart rate.

If your average is over 100 BPM (tachycardia) or below 60 BPM (bradycardia), it is advisable to consult your doctor. (NOT you Lance!)


 Calculating Your Resting Heart Rate Average

 Knowing your resting heart rate is a good way to measure the progress of any fitness program you may be undertaking, and it's great for goal setting.

-Using your middle and index fingers, find your pulse at the side of your neck (or wrist), then count the number of heartbeats for 15 seconds. Multiply this number by 4 to get your - beats per minute . (15x4 = 60 seconds)

 It is important to measure your resting heart rate  before  you get out of bed in the morning, after waking up  naturally  (without an alarm, which will increase your heart rate) -or you can measure your heart rate upon resting for 5 minutes  after  rising. (longer rest if measured during the day)

 Continue to do this for 3 to 5 mornings  or more. The more days, the more accurate this test will be. (Need not be on  consecutive  days) The results are then added together and divided by the number of days.

-For example, if you measured your heart rate for 5 days and the results were: 75, 82, 77, 71, and 75 = 380. Then you divide  this by the number of days to get your average, 380/5 = 76 (BPM)  resting heart rate average .
