RESTING HEART RATE
Tape This Worksheet On Your Clock/Nightstand As A Reminder!
The resting heart rate is most accurately assessed when measured for a
full minute first thing in the morning before you get out of bed.
Place your fingertips on your wrist on the thumb side (radial pulse).
Avoid using too much pressure when using the carotid pulse to measure
heart rate. Count (Zero first) for an entire minute.
• After you wake up, give sometime to your body to rest for a while
• Do not suddenly start measuring the RHR after waking up
• Lie down at least for 15 minutes before measuring the RHR
