I'm 41yrs of age and my heart rate is at 55. Is this something to be worried about?

I'm 41yrs of age and my heart rate is at 55. Is this something to be worried about?

Depends: If you are an athletic individual it may be that your heart rate has adjusted based on how healthy your heart muscle is. If this is not the case, you would need to see your doctor and have them consider something called a holter monitor which measures your heart rate and rhythm over a period of at least 24 hours. It would also be important to know if you have any symptoms with this low heart rat. ...Read more

I exceeded my maximum heart rate for my age, is this bad?

I exceeded my maximum heart rate for my age, is this bad?

No: Maximum heart rate for age is a PREDICTED heart rate and is only a guideline. When I supervise treadmill stress tests, I see people exceed their predicted max everyday. As long as you feel ok (tired and winded, of course!), it's okay. ...Read more

When exercising one identifies a heart rate which is 100%, depending on age. 100% of what? (i refer to the 220-age formula for 100% heart rate.)

When exercising one identifies a heart rate which is 100%, depending on age.  100% of what?  (i refer to the 220-age formula for 100% heart rate.)

Of predicted: Certain numbers have been determined to be maximal heart based on age. The heart can actually go faster than these numbers but it has been determined that higher rates are detrimental. If you are exercising and you heart rate reaches that predicted number, then you have reached 100%. It is recommended that you keep your heart rate at 80-90% during exercise. ...Read more

Im averaging a 100bpm heart rate.  Im fairly active and 26 years of age.  Should i be concerned?

Not really: 100bpm is not considered to be very high. for a healthy athletic 26 years old male is expected to be lower than that how high your heart rate goes when you exercise? my advise is to see a cardiologist to check on your BP and your hydration status, and your blood level to r/o anemia, and you thyroid function, then determined that there is no underlying heart problem, assured your or treat you. ...Read more

How do you feel?: There is no rule that says it can't go that fast, but it's more than expected. It's possible your monitor is "double counting" the beats, which is not uncommon because it misinterprets the electrical impulse of your heart. Do you have a fast heart rate at rest? Do you have palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, passing out or chest pain? If you have those, see your doc to check rhythm. ...Read more
