Generally: Hi. Healthy pulse for normal healthy people is 50's to low 80's at rest. It's important to make sure it's assessed at rest. Pulse increases with activity, and that's normal. While medical textbooks say a normal resting pulse is 60-100, that's not correct. No healthy person has a resting pulse in the high 80's or 90's. Peace and good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm supposed to know what a healthy heart rate is after exercise, and also know what isn't healthy.
220-age = max: During exercise, the target is 70 to 80% of ur maximum heart rate, which is 220-ur age (e.g., a 40 yr old has a theoretical max HR of 180 bpm, & 80% of that is 144 bpm). Anything above the max is not healthy if u r not used to exercising. 15 min after exercise (complete rest), ur HR should drop back down to less than 100 bpm. Anything above that means something's not healthy. TTYD or cardiologist ...Read more
