Does high heart rate during excercise cause rabdomyolosis?

Does high heart rate during excercise cause rabdomyolosis?

No: Rhabdomyolosys is a muscle injury direct or indirect. It result in breakdown of muscle fibers and release of their contents into the bloodstream. In an untrained athlete, excessive exercise can cause extreme muscle strain or a heat stroke causing tachycardia as a cause of the process. Rhabdo will occur because of the muscle breakdown not the tachycardia. Hydration and training very important. ...Read more

Why does my heart rate increase significantly after eating?

Maybe it does: When you eat a big meal, you divert blood to digestive tract where it's most needed. Your heart responds by pumping more blood. It has 2 ways to do this: increase its stroke volume and increase its rate. If you have heart disease and can't increase your sv, the rate will have to increase. If you're healthy, most likely your observations were random and not consistently reproducible. ...Read more

High (approx. 80 BPM) resting heart rate. Previously sedentary. My heart pounds hard and fast during T25 DVD workout - is actually feeling it normal?

High (approx. 80 BPM) resting heart rate. Previously sedentary. My heart pounds hard and fast during T25 DVD workout - is actually feeling it normal?

Heart rate and exerc: Heart rate of 80 is still well within the normal range. If you have started an exercise program after being relatively sedentary - its not unusual that you might see an increase in pulse. As your body adjusts to the new exercise program and your cardiovascular health improves the pulse will lower. The pounding is simply your body letting you know its out of shape. Good luck ...Read more

What causes an increase in heart rate when exercising at high intensity? My heart rate went from 180 to 220.

Normal response: But that is too high for you -- your maximum should be no more than 180 and keep it there for about 30 minutes for a proper cardio or aerobic exercise -- and do it regularly 3 times a week -- as you get fitter, your heart rate will lower and it will take longer and higher intensity to get to your maximum heart rate -- don't overstress your heart in a hurry -- it's not a goal but a lifestyle. ...Read more

If rest HR is > 140 : There are many causes of high hr. Svt comes out of nowhere, results in fast palpitations, and usually hr > 140. Sinus tachycardia can occur with anxiety or any illness, or pregnancy, or stimulants such as nicotine and caffeine. If your hr is less than about 100 at rest, that is normal. You can find out your average hr with holter monitor (doc orders). If u feel ok, go to outpt doc, not hospital. ...Read more
