Your target heart rate is the range of heartbeats per minute (bpm) that is considered safe and effective for your age, sex, and overall health.
A heart rate monitor can help you track your heart rate during exercise and ensure you stay within your target heart rate zone.
If you find yourself short of breath or gasping for air during exercise, it could be a sign that your heart rate is too high.
Pay attention to any unusual symptoms such as chest pain, dizziness, or fatigue during exercise.
A proper warm-up can help your heart adjust to the increased demands of exercise. Always warm-up before you begin your exercise.
A proper cool-down can help your heart rate return to normal.
Drinking plenty of water before, during, and after exercise can help prevent dehydration, which can affect heart rate.
Regular check-ups with your doctor can help you monitor your heart health, including your heart rate during exercise.
