Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?

Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?

Heart rate is: regulated under autonomic control and function. Aging, glucose intolerance, medications, physical condition and hydration can all have effects on the autonomic system resulting in variability to the heart rate response to various activities. Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read more

12mins intense jogging having 5min break then 5 minutes as effective as 17 minutes in one go? Aiming for cardiovascular wellness fitness maintained weight

12mins intense jogging having 5min break then 5 minutes as effective as 17 minutes in one go?  Aiming for cardiovascular wellness fitness maintained weight

Yes: It's just as effective. If you exercise 20 minutes 8 times, you get the benefit of 160 minutes of exercise. It doesn't matter if you break it up or do it all at once. You could make the case that, with rest, you can exercise more effectively so breaking it up makes sense. ...Read more

Medically supervised very low calorie diet (800 calories). Ok to exercise. Principle of ketosis. Burn about 400 cal/day/hr monitor. Safe?

Medically supervised very low calorie diet (800 calories). Ok to exercise. Principle of ketosis. Burn about 400 cal/day/hr monitor. Safe?

No safe shortcuts: This type of diet often makes the body angry, decreasing calories too much too quickly will send your body into starvation mode. Less calories = weight loss, but your body will become more efficient at holding onto calories, so you will gain the weight back and then some later on. Weight watchers is the safest and most consistent in my experience with thousands of people. ...Read more

Post cardio snack? Protein & high on the glycemic index for my advanced strength traing. But what's good post cardio such as 5k 7mph. Fat loss goal

Post cardio snack?  Protein & high on the glycemic index for my advanced strength traing. But what's good post cardio such as 5k 7mph. Fat loss goal

Try drinking water: And not having a snack. If you want to enhance fat burning during cardio, have a cup of tea or coffee about 30 minutes prior to exercise (without sugar or sweeteners). This will help mobilize fat stores and improve endurance during your work out. Iced tea or coffee is good. And if you must have a snack try raw carrots, celery, other vegetables with hummus. Unsalted roasted almonds are good too. ...Read more

Heart rate shoots up in the mid to late hundreds after doing 100 pushups? I'm 18 male 5'9 160-170 pounds. Rest is around 100. I'd say i'm fit so why

Heart rate shoots up in the mid to late hundreds after doing 100 pushups? I'm 18 male 5'9 160-170 pounds. Rest is around 100. I'd say i'm fit so why

Heart rate: Your exertional heart rate sounds appropriate for that level of exertion. Your resting heart rate is higher than expected, and i would consider getting checked for anemia, hyperthyroid condition, etc. Some people just run high with no explanation (inappropriate sinus tachycardia). ...Read more

Will an hour of cardio a day (30 min elliptical + 30 min treadmill) and a restricted diet slim my legs down?

Will an hour of cardio a day (30 min elliptical + 30 min treadmill) and a restricted diet slim my legs down?

Spot reducing: Loosing weight in one area, e.g., legs, stomach, etc. doesn't happen well. We loose weight all over our bodies. Exercising your legs will change fat into muscle so they will have more definition and be stronger, which is positive. Above all, aim for overall wellness, stay neat, clean, treat others the way you would like to be treated. That is what makes us truly attractive. Peace & health. ...Read more

I'm athlete,great shape. HR hovers in 140-150's for 20-25 min after exercising. HR Reaches 205-207 exercising. I'm hydrated.Why does it stay so high?

I'm athlete,great shape. HR hovers in 140-150's for 20-25 min after exercising. HR Reaches 205-207 exercising. I'm hydrated.Why does it stay so high?

These heart rates: are unexpected in a trained athlete. Have they been confirmed electrocardiographically or is this a finger or pulse ox monitor giving you the readings? First confirm these high rates are "real" then if so seek evaluation as they may represent a treatable arrhythmia rather than normal for you. ...Read more

Is it an acceptable practice to perform cardio exercises (about 20-30 minutes) on fasting days when going through an alternate-day fasting program?

Is it an acceptable practice to perform cardio exercises (about 20-30 minutes) on fasting days when going through an alternate-day fasting program?

Carefully: It is acceptable. It does need to be done with mindfulness. An example of this is in professional football players of muslim faith who practiced during ramadan where they fast from sun up to sun down. Often practices were two times a day. No ill effects were noted. Having said this choosing a time when exercise can be done when heat/ humidity is low is preferable. Hydrate well days off fast. ...Read more

How much exercise is over exercise. I regulary cycle for 50 kms in a stationary bike .

Exercise: How much you exercise depends on your goal. If what you want is good conditioning then 30-60minutes a day of aerobic mixed in with 3 days a week of strength training is good. If you're training for distance biking, running or some other goal, then a training program specific to the goal is needed. If you're exercise beyond what you need for your goal, you could be said to be 'overexercising'. ...Read more

Which type of walking reduce body fat fast ? Slow walking to 1hr or speed walking to1/2hr (eg; 3.0 speed at treadmill to 1hr or 5.4 speed to 1/2hr)

Which type of walking reduce body  fat fast ? Slow walking to 1hr or speed walking to1/2hr (eg; 3.0 speed at treadmill to 1hr or 5.4 speed to 1/2hr)

Weight loss: It is not about the type of walking but rather the calories burned. Using your example you will have walked 3 miles in one hour slow walking and 2.7 miles in a 1/2 hour fast walking. Because you went farther slow walking you would have burned more calories and therefore, lost more weight from the longer walk. ...Read more
