Does everyone age 55+ who walks fast for exercise and who are in good general health with no known heart problems need to know their max heart rate?
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

It would also be important to know if you have any symptoms with this low heart rat. ...Read more
Predicted heart rate: During exercise, the maximum predicted heart rate for your age is calculated by subtracting your age from 220 (220 - age). At 33 years old that would be 220 - 33 = 187 beats per minute. Any heart rate up to 187 beats/minute during exercise would likely be normal. ...Read more

I'm 18 exercise regularly but am 6ft 200lbs. Sometimes I have a heart rate of 55 but when I exercise it goes up normal. Should I get checked?
May be normal: The normal resting hear rate is between 60 and 100. The heart rate increases with exercise and people who exercise a lot tend to have lower resting heart rate. Trained marathon runners may have resting heart in the 40's - 50's. If you have dizziness or feel lightheaded when the heart rate is low, you should have it checked. ...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.)
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

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
