Harley Pasternak: How To Find Your Heart Rate
What is your heart rate? It is how many times per minute your heart beats. Harley Pasternak shared some ways you can figure out your heart rate.
The Revolution: Heart Rate Monitor
You can purchase and use a heart rate monitor, either as a standalone device or part of your cardio equipment like a treadmill or stationary bike.
Manual Heart Rate
You can check your heart rate by putting two fingers on your pulse at your neck or wrist. Time yourself and count the beats for 10 seconds. Then multiply that number by six to get your heart rate.

A third alternative is called the Talk Test. It lets you know how hard your heart is working by how difficult it is for you to talk while you are working out.
The Revolution: How to Calculate Your Ideal Heart Rate
To determine your optimal heart rate, take the number 220 and subtract your age. For a 35-year-old woman, the ideal maximum heart rate is 185.
To get your ideal heart rate range, multiply that number by .65 to .85. For example, a 35-year-old’s maximum heart rate is 185. Multiplying 185 by .65 and .85 gives you a heart rate range of 120 to 150. That is the target heart rate zone during exercise, ensuring you’re burning fat but not working too hard.
The Revolution: Heart Rate Zones
Harley said you a Healthy Heart Rate Zone is about half of your maximum Heart Rate. The Fitness Rate is 60 to 70% of your maximum.
Your Aerobic Zone is 70 to 80% of that max Heart Rate, making it difficult to carry on a conversation. The Anaerobic Zone is 80 to 90% of your maximum, and the last zone is the Red Line, 90 to 100% of your Maximum Heart Zone.
