8 Minute Mile Pace
31 y/o. 6'6". 230. Pretty active. Is 9 minute mile running time a decent time for health observation. HR 170-180bpm. 50 BPM drop after 2 mins stopping?
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
Is a max heartrate of 170-175 during hiit workout (1 min high intensity 1 min recovery.. 20 min total) ) good for a fit 43 yr old female? 3-4x week
How much weight can I loose in 3 months by walking 30 minutes on treadmill at 4.7 km/hr or by running 30 minutes on treadmill at 7 km/hr ?
Not Sure: I'm not sure about the weight loss relationship to your walking or running, but I am certain that the correct amount of exercise and the type of exercise best suited to your needs is whatever you will enthusiastically stick to over the long run. All too often people "burn out" chasing an exact target of minutes and speed. ...Read more
Unfit. Male 22. Will excercise bike 20 minutes a day at 125bpm increase heart left ventricle and improve efficiency after 6 months?

Possibly.: If an 18 yr old male jogged relatively fast or uphill, the heart rate might reach the 174-180/min range during the exertion; however, it would be expected to come down fairly quickly upon slowing ones pace. Actually, the more one becomes conditioned to exercise, the lower the heart rate response to a given amount of exercise workload. ...Read more
Heart rate stays at 160 after exercise for 30 minutes? Never happened before? Healthy resting ecg?
My heart rate runs between 120- 140bpm during 30 minute run. Cool down it goes to 95-101. I average 10 incline and 4.8 mph. Good pace? My % runs 70-80
How do you feel?: This sounds like a reasonable regimen - how do you feel during and after you run? If you have not had a stress test recently, you should see your doctor to discuss this. It helps to see you ECG and exercise tolerance in a monitored setting. Also, does your heart rate slow down in the later evening? Monitor these and share with your doctor soon! ...Read more
I am running daily 27 minutes on treadmill @ speed of 5.5 km per hr. Will it be helpfull for me ?
Yes.: That sounds like it should be fine. Check your heart rate during exercise - your should be about 160 for maximal cardiovascular benefit. If it's higher than that, but not higher than 180, then great. If it's lower than that, you may need to up your pace a bit. Any cardiovascular exercise will be beneficial for weight maintenance and health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Calories every day and exercising 4 times a week (burning 400 - 450 calories). Will i maintain weight?
You need enough: Calories to maintain your metabolic rate. Calculate your weight in pounds and multiply by 10 to determine your baseline. Then add the activity amount of calorie burning each day, 10% for minimal activity and more for vigorous activity (at least 30%). It appears you are able to determine your activity caloric burning so add that amount to your baseline on those days. Adjust based on loss/gain. ...Read more
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
Do i need a pacemaker, 73 year old male active, walking 3 mile a day. Pulse rate in the 40 to 50 beats a minute?
Unlikely! PulseRate≠: heart rate, may be slower, never faster. Slower rates for someone physically active is c/w lower normal heart size & good heart function. Pacemakers make heart weaker (less well coordinated due to where they stimulate heart muscle); only useful for long pauses, e.g. >2 sec, with symptoms due to low output for given activity. Pacemakers=only a backup; remind heart muscle to contract if too slow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a 57 RHR. I workout 3-4 times per week and struggle to get my heart rate into an aerobic zone. I try to burn 600 calories per workout but per heart rate monitor it takes 1:30 hours. With Bradycardia is heart rate indicative of calorie burn?
Doing good: Please do not obsess about heart rate and calories burnt. If you maintain a healthy weight and exercise 150 minutes/week you are doing great. Over exercising may not be a good idea. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
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
