I hear that resting heart rate is a good measure of fitness. In the gym yesterday, I was reading Zest magazine (whilst on the cross trainer, honest!
) and it said a fit heart rate is 50-60bpm when you wake up in the morning. Well I work out three times a week (gym or swim) but mine is more than that
. I'm going to add aerobic walking on the other days (don't have time for the whole go to gym, change, workout, shower, change, come back every day) but I was wondering what kind of rest heart rate I should be aiming for as I've heard mixed messages about this?
