Is it considered unhealthy to exercise above your target heart rate?

Nothing: When people ask me about what their target hr should be when working out, I tell them that the workout intensity is more important than heart rate. So if you feel like you are overdoing it, are exhausted and feeling sick after your workout, and your hr was less than target, it was too much. Decrease intensity. If hr is higher than target, and you feel ok afterwards, that's ok, no problem. ...Read more

There are other factors too, like presence/absence of anemia, hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, (wall thickening), and contractility which determine how much blood the heart is using and needs. ...Read more

Are you burning muscle if you go above your target heart rate?

Are you burning muscle if you go above your target heart rate?

No: There is no such thing as "target heart rate." depending on your training goals, the "target" could be anything from 60% to 100% of your max heart rate. Exceeding ~80-84% of max heart rate shifts metabolism to anaerobic (airless) metabolism resulting in the production of Lactic Acid and the burning sensation. The body is burning pure glucose here. Muscles break from overuse, not that process. ...Read more

With high protein diet, weight lifting and short burst 1-2 mins every 5 mins of fast running for no more than 30mins, 3 times a week, probably not. Every person is different but you will built endurance and cardiac capacity. Check with a trainer for better results. ...Read more
