I've recently started training with a HR monitor and I'm trying to work ou tmy "resting" HR.
If I wear my HR monitor overnight, is the minimum value my true resting heart rate (i.e. when I'm alseep) or is the resting heart rate when I'm awake but still, so when I wake up I should lay still for a while then check the monitor for the minimum reading?
Hopefully calculating my HR max won't be as confusing - I'm doing a treaddie max test tomorrow...
Thanks for your help.
I wouldn't bother wearing HRM all night, you're more than likely just going to kill the battery. I check it my setting my alarm ten minutes early, putting it on, snoozing and when the next alarm goes, take the avg. Up to you though obviously.
How are you planning on doing your max test? I've never tried this and would like some pointers.
