High Heart Rate With Exercise
Heart rate: The normal range of resting heart rate is considered 60-100, but many people have lower heart rates than that and are in good health. Physical fitness like running, cycling, swimming often leads to lower hr and some people are normal even in the 40's range. If you have high bp, some meds lower the hr, such as beta blockers. ...Read more

Can diabetes be cause for elevated resting heart rate and exercise heart rate, as well as extreme sleepiness/fatigue after exercise and bounding pulse?
Help needed: It is common for heart rate to increase when blood pressure falls. This combination can have a variety of causes. It may rise from dehydration (from protracted vomiting and diarrhea); low blood volume (internal bleeding), or adrenal hormone deficiency. Fatigue may result from the low blood pressure. ...Read more
Should someone with a high resting heart rate also have a relatively higher target heart rate when working out?
Not Necessarily: The two aren't directly correlated. The best thing to do is to test your specific maximum heart rate using a treadmill. The old formula for what we'd estimate a max hr to be is 220-age for a man, 210-age for a woman. There's a new, better formula which is much more complex. ...Read more

I have a low heart rate but i'm overweight? A low heart rate is better than a high heart rate right?
Why do I experience a low heart rate with normal/high blood pressure and a high heart rate with low blood pressure? Thanks
No Easy Answers from: A distance. Everything you describe is a behavior/sign/symptom, none causal. Heart rate, strength of contraction (both heart functions) ; BP (mean arteriole resistance) are all controlled 24/7, split-second by split-second, by our brain/mind at below conscious, autonomic nervous system level. While alterations in heart muscle size & function (usual doc focus) are also a factor, these are secondary ...Read more
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
Depends: Slow heart rate resting is not harmful and may indicate an athletic (healthy) physiology. Hr should increase, at least relatively, with exercise - failure to increase is a sign of conduction system disease (chronotropic incompetence). If associated with progressive loss of exercise capacity, treatment may be indicated. This can all be determined easily on a treadmill stress test. ...Read more
Yes, while it's : Great that you don't have the probs u mention, there is more to heart dz than just that. Healthy eating & wt., regular exercise are important even if your bp, choles, etc are normal. More advance testing for other risk factors beyond the standard lipid panel & fasting sugar level is available in some places, & we're still learning about other risk factors. Good u r being prevention-minded! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Low blood pressure and low heart rate in runners. Am I at risk for an abnormal arrhythmia setting in?
No: Very well conditioned athletes typically have low resting heart rates and low normal blood pressure that are a result of their excellent physical shape and not because of underlying heart disease. Now, if you are feeling faint, dizzy, light headed, weak or unwell in any other way seek medical evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Pulse and BP are somewhat independent. Many things that raise your pulse also raise bp, but that is not always true and the opposite is also true. For example very low BP due to shock is accompanied by very high pulse rate and very high pulse rate is often associated with lack of forward flow and very low bp. ...Read more
