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
Is it safe to exercise close to your max heart rate ?I'm 26 years old and when i jog my heart rate usually gets up to 175 BPM . Should i slow itdown
Yes: Yes, if you are an otherwise healthy 26 year-old, exercising to a heart rate of near 200 BPM would be normal. An exercise heart rate of 175 would be healthy. As you exercise more, the heart rate during exercise will decrease. A heart healthy diet and exercise program will help you to exercise at lower heart rates. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal for my resting heart rate to be 100, EVEN though I exercise? I do alot of cardio exercise everyday.
Dangerous to exercise with a high resting heart rate of 155+ all responses greatly appreciated thanks! also I am already seeing a cardio and have med
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?
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
51 yo male. Chf with no known cause. Exercise about two hours daily. Moderate cardio in targeted heart rate range. Am i overdoing it? Feel great.
I'm 18, heart rate used to be good in the 60-80 range at rest. Now that i'm on Norvasc (amlodipine) 5 mg, it's 90-120 range at rest. Is it even safe to exercise?!
