Exercise: Exercise raises the heart rate.

No: Even a little exercise should raise your heart rate. As you get back into good aerobic shape, it will increase less.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Please explain why does my heart rate jump up to 125 BPM when I am relaxing?

Dr. Warren Foster

Arrhythmia: Normally, your heart rate should slow down, when relaxing. Anything over 100 bpm, after a couple minutes of rest, is unusual. You may have an electrical short circuit in your heart, that causes it to go faster. There can also be another condition making it increase from outside the heart itself. See your doctor for a thorough history and physical and referral to a heart rhythm specialist.

When in the heat-: -Ur HR will B elevated as Ur body is trying 2 cool off, by increasing the blood supply 2 Ur skin.

Talk 2 Ur parents about this as they R the gatekeepers of Ur health care. U should C a cardiologist or internist.
