High (approx. 80 BPM) resting heart rate. Previously sedentary. My heart pounds hard and fast during T25 DVD workout - is actually feeling it normal?

Heart rate and exerc: Heart rate of 80 is still well within the normal range. If you have started an exercise program after being relatively sedentary - its not unusual that you might see an increase in pulse. As your body adjusts to the new exercise program and your cardiovascular health improves the pulse will lower. The pounding is simply your body letting you know its out of shape. Good luck ...Read more

Hi doctors, is it normal for a 60 year old male to have a resting heart rate of 57 bpm. Thankyou?

A bit low but...: "Normal" resting heart rate for men is 60-100, though 57 concerns me less than if it was 90. Those who are in good athletic condition may have lower heart rates. 57 is close enough to normal to be of minimal concern.
PS If you are on Lipitor (atorvastatin) I consider it essential to also take CoQ10.

Have an exam: If you were quite physically active, this would be a fine HR. But, as you say you are not - something is not right. Don't panic but do have a full exam w/ lab work. It may be thyroid function or some other easy to address issue. Also consider some therapy to learn anxiety mgmt skills. It can really help build a stronger and more satisfying life. ...Read more

Resting? Or walking: A true resting heart rate is measures after 15 minutes of laying down or sitting in a chair without anxious thoughts in your head. Walking up to the pharmacy's machine and pressing a button doesn't count. That being said, if your resting heart rate is truly elevated, try to find the cause. If there is no prior heart history, Rx may not be needed. Propranolol for anxiety & SVT is often used. TTYD. ...Read more

Is my hr normal playing basketball hr is 160 resting heart rate is 45-55 BPM BP usually is 114/76 I am 6ft 5 inch tall and weigh 215 pnds?

160 near upper limit: Max. Hr = 220-age. Vigorous workout usually 70-90% of max. (132-170 for a 31 yo male). The heart rate should peak and return to resting rate over few minutes. If rate starts or drops suddenly or the rhythm is irregular you may be experiencing svt or atrial fibrillation (af). If so seek medical attention. Taller people are at higher risk of af.

Reason?: Is there a particular reason to want to lower your heart rate? 60 bpm in athlete is perfectly fine and normal. There is no physiological reason (that I am aware of) why you would want it lower than that. Too low of a heart rate is not good either since it would not allow adequate blood flow to your body. If it goes down to the 50's it's ok under your circumstances but not too low. ...Read more
