What Is A Safe Heart Rate When Working Out
When exercising, if you're working to try to get more fit so pushing yourself, is it safe to briefly exceed 85% of estimated max heart rate as long as you bring it down within a few minutes (say <3)?
Yes: Presuming you are in good cardiovascular health medicallt speaking yes it is ok to do this. This type of interval training will increase your aerobic fitness level and helps burn more calories. ...Read more
No one rate: There is no one "safe" heart rate for someone with hypertension. Cage normal range for heart rate is 60-100 beats per minute, but it varies throughout the day, with stress and activity, and with someone with high blood pressure, certain medications will effect the heart rate. Che key factor is whether a specific heart rate (fast or slow) is causing symptoms or is consistently out of range. ...Read more
I think so: I think ur asking if a heart rate of 81 when you are not resting (so perhaps after you exercise?) is a safe rate; if that's correct then yes 81 is probably fine. A "normal" heart rate varies depending on lots of things (age, activity, emotions, meds, hydration status, more). In general the better shape you're in, the lower your rate goes. And with vigorous exercise it can go up much higher than 81. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Decrease heart rate: If you want to lower your heart rate when exercising then simply lower the intensity of your workout. For example, if you are running then slow your run and decrease your arm swing. Stopping completely will lower your heart rate but once you return to the same intensity your heart rate will likely go back to the same level. ...Read more
