    Find your heartrate for 1 minute by using the following-

    Radial pulse

    1. Place your pointer and middle fingers on the inside of your opposite wrist just below the thumb.
    2. Don’t use your thumb to check your pulse, as the artery in your thumb can make it harder to count accurately.
    3. Once you can feel your pulse, count how many beats you feel in 30 seconds.
    4. Multiply this number by 2 to get your heart rate. For instance, 40 beats in 30 seconds equals a heart rate of 80 beats per minute (bpm).
    Carotid pulse
    1. Place your pointer and middle fingers on the side of your windpipe just below the jawbone. You may need to shift your fingers until you can easily feel your heart beating.
    2. Count the pulses you feel for 30 seconds.
    3. Multiply this number by 2 to obtain your heart rate.

    Resting heart rate is best taken immediately after waking up in the morning. Target heart rate is valuable to monitor your physical activity and know how to improve your workouts and to know if you are working out hard enough.
