Why is an elevated heart rate alone not always a valid indicator of effective aerobic-training?

Why is an elevated heart rate alone not always a valid indicator of effective aerobic-training?

Poor indicator: We use target heart rate as guideline to tailor aerobic training and calculating of energy utilization. Elevated heart rate is a poor indicator of effective aerobic training as many variable affects hr, including deconditioning, anemia, pain, euphoria, drugs, dehydration. How slowly the heart rate ramps up during aerobic exercise and how rapidly it declines to baseline are better predictor. ...Read more

How could the level heart rate variability be an indicator of the level of sympathetic or vagal control?

It is: Our regular heart rate which is slower than the intrinsic rate is the balance between the sympathetic and vagal inputs to the sinus node at any time with the latter dominating.This causes beat to beat variation specially noticeable during respiration Parasympathetic activity is represented by reduced variation in time domain and dominance of hi frequency oscillations in the spectral analysis ...Read more

I have heard that fetal heart rate bear a relation with the gender of the baby. Less than 140 BPM indicates a boy and vice versa. How far is this true?

I have heard that fetal heart rate bear a relation with the gender of the baby. Less than 140 BPM indicates a boy and vice versa. How far is this true?

Not true.: All the indirect "signs" of fetal gender are old wive's tales; if you want to know your baby's sex, just get an ultrasound (or even blood test nowadays such as maternit21/harmony). There is no scientific proof that male fetuses have lower baseline heart-rate in comparison to females. Gender does not affect fetal heart rate variation. Oguch o, steer p.

No: Heart rate isn't indicative of baby's gender, careful ultrasound exam or even more invasive procedures like CVS would tell, I can appreciate social implications, better wait though or resort to ultrasound, wish you a healthy pregnancy and a healthy infant of any gender ...Read more
