Graphs And Charts On Exercise And Heart Rate Changes
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
