WHY WE LIKE IT
This article does a good job explaining the importance of understanding your Resting Heart Rate, the factors impacting it, and what it is telling you about your health and fitness. It addresses what a low Resting Heart Rate could be telling you and what a high Resting Heart Rate could be telling you.
AN EXCERPT FROM THE ARTICLE:
"One of the easiest, and maybe most effective, ways to gauge your health can be done in 30 seconds with two fingers. Measuring your resting heart rate (RHR) — the number of heartbeats per minute while you’re at rest — is a real-time snapshot of how your heart muscle is functioning."
"Your resting heart rate, when considered in the context of other markers, such as blood pressure and cholesterol, can help identify potential health problems as well as gauge your current heart health."
