How to check your heart rate.

During your workout you want to check your exercise heart rate several time during your exercise.

To do so you can test use two fingers and place them on your wrist or your neck.

Once you find your pulse in one of these areas, while watching the clock or watch count the number of beats for 10 seconds.

Then take the number then multiply that number by 6 and you will get your heart rate per minutes.
