What Is Healthy Heart Rate
I'm supposed to know what a healthy heart rate is after exercise, and also know what isn't healthy.
220-age = max: During exercise, the target is 70 to 80% of ur maximum heart rate, which is 220-ur age (e.g., a 40 yr old has a theoretical max HR of 180 bpm, & 80% of that is 144 bpm). Anything above the max is not healthy if u r not used to exercising. 15 min after exercise (complete rest), ur HR should drop back down to less than 100 bpm.

May want to ease up: a little bit. 100-170 beats per minute is approximately 50-85% of your maximal heart rate (known as target heart rate).

Hello. : Hello. I can't provide you with an exact number. However, if you are 39 weeks pregnant and you lie on your back, there is a signficant possibility that the uterus is compressing your aorta (the giant vessel that exits the heart and feeds blood to the most of the body). It is not recommended that you lie flat on your back at this stage in pregnancy. Recommend that you lie on your left side to displace pressure from your aorta. Congratulations and i hope your delivery goes smoothly. ...Read more
