Could you please tell me the proper way to measure recovery heart rate?  Does duration of exercise matter? I was hoping to do it after 30mins of cardio.

Various ways: Count your pulse immediately after that exercise for 10 seconds and multiply by 6 for the end of exercise heart rate in beats per minute . Measure again in 1 minute and the rate should be at least 12 beats per minute less. In 2 minutes it should be at least 22 beats per minute less. The faster the heart rate goes down the better. Overheating and dehydration may keep pulse elevated. ...Read more

?: Bonnie, it's hard for me to imagine that your cardio has not treated your resting heart rate of 155+. This is damaging to your heart whether you exercise or not. Moreover, if your resting heart rate is near its maximum, you're not going to get very far with your exercise. ...Read more

?

Weak heart beat: Not enough information and no question. I do not know what you mean by heartbeat. Do u mean pulse in your wrist? I do not know what you mean by artery in neck feels strained. I have never in 50 yeArs of seeing patients have someone tell me this. Heart rate should be high after exercise. Maybe this is all lost in translation. ...Read more

Whats a normal change in heart rate with exercise?

Whats a normal change in heart rate with exercise?

Increased heart rate: Exercise is cardiovascular (aerobic) if you raise and elevate your heart rate for an extended period of time. Preferably you would like to elevate your pulse to 65-85% of your max hr. Max hr= 220- age. So for example if you are 30yo your max hr = 190 BPM and you would want to elevate your heart rate to at least 125 to 162. If you are strength training it will be a smaller increase than that. ...Read more
