Dr. Berg teaches you a simple test to rule out risk of a heart attack. Its all about your recovery after exercise. Those people who can recover fast have a lower risk of getting a heart attack. This stems from the system that controls recovery - autonomic nervous system, specifically - parasympathetics. This system is always in the background causing you to recover and bounce back.
Assess your resting pulse rate, then peak pulse rate after 1 minute of exercise (70% of max.), then re-check your recovery pulse rate 1 minute later. Subtract the Peak pulse rate from the recovery pulse rate to get your number.
Less than 12 beats recovery: Higher Risk
13-20: Moderate Risk
21-40: You're good
40+: Real fit
