Expotentially More Important Than Marketing Your Business
The 7-Minute Heart Test
By Michael Masterson
Your heart rate is an indicator of your cardiovascular fitness. How quickly it slows down after exercise is an important measurement.
To measure your heart's recovery rate, says Dr. Al Sears in his book The Doctor's Heart Cure, exercise vigorously for five minutes and then take your pulse. Wait two minutes. Then calculate your heart rate again.
If you have an average level of fitness, it will drop by 55 beats. Well-conditioned people will see a higher drop, perhaps 70 beats. Generally, the faster you recover, the better your fitness and the lower your risk of heart disease.
