Heart rate training is important for two main reasons, that is, to make sure your workout is safe for you, and to measure your progress. It isn’t a good idea to workout and have your heart rate in an unsafe zone. Then, as you progress, you will be able to get your heart rate up, and even though that zone was previously unsafe, it is now safe. The only way to monitor your heart rate is with a monitor. Try to find one that accurately measures your heart rate, and you’re on your way to having a stronger and healthier heart. By the way, It might be said it’s better to have a stronger heart than stronger arms or legs, or great abs.
