Use the “talk test” to monitor fitness.

Posted by Lisa Nelson, RD, LN on August 1, 2008

Have you been working out regularly, but not seeing the results you want?  Are you working hard enough?
 
A quick and simple way to check your workout intensity is the “talk test”. 
 
If you can talk with no trouble, pick up the pace.
If you can talk, but need to take a breath every 4-5 words, you’re right on track.
If you’re gasping for breath after every word, slow down!
 
Check yourself the next time you workout. . .you may need to find a higher gear!

All the best,
