How would monitoring my heart rate during exercise help me?

How would   monitoring my heart rate during exercise help me?

Exercising the heart: Your heart rate during exercise is an insight into how hard your body is working. First off you need to determine your maximum predicted heart rate for your age. This is 220 minus your age. From this number you can figure out your "zones". A good workout zone is 70-85% of the maximum. Talk to your doctor or a personal trainer to figure out what's best for your health and your goals. ...Read more

What is the medical explanation for low heart rate during exercise?

What is the medical explanation for low heart rate during exercise?

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

Interesting question: In theory 220- age is maximum heart rate, but I have seen some people exceed this formula, the real question is target heart rate- probably 60-70% of this according to exercise physiology - about 112 for you. If you run a bit higher comfortably, don't worry. As you excercise more your heart rate may drop as you get more fit. Still, you don't have to go that hard to get benefits. Be well! ...Read more

If somebody has high heart rate (>90 at rest) it is very easy to hit the max HR during exercise even moderate. How safe is to exercise at that level?

If somebody has high heart rate (>90 at rest) it is very easy to hit the max HR during exercise even moderate. How safe is to exercise at that level?

Slowly increase...: Lack of conditioning can lead to a HR that increases rather quickly with exercise. Slowly increasing the duration & exertion with exercise - and being consistent with exercise will help lead to a lower resting HR and a slower increase. The max HR recommendations are safe; however, it isn't easy to maintain them for a length of time that would be beneficial. Build up your tolerance. ...Read more
