Resting heart rate

It's not very scientific but my resting heart rate, at least today, is between 52-56 beats per minute. I used my index and middle finger to find my pulse in my neck, and then did another test using those fingers on my left wrist.

It's a pretty low heart rate, which is typically a good thing. You want a low resting heart rate. That's about the rate it was at when I last saw a trainer, but he used a heart rate monitor instead of the two-finger method.
