What is the best way to achieve my target and recovery heart rate?

What's your target? I am assuming you are talking about target zones base on maximal heart rate during exercise. Target zones are use to plan an exercise routine depending on your goals. Fat burning, endurance, cardiac capacity. You will achieve your hr by running, bicycle, elliptical etc, stay for one minute then slowly decrease pace until hr slowly drop less than 90-100. Difficult to recommend if I don't know your goals, . Read more...

Heart rAte goes from 50 when sitting to 116 when standing up. Then within 40 seconds my hr Goes back to normal. Recovery hr when excersising is 60/70?

Dehydration. When your heart rate goes up that high with standing, you need to strongly consider dehydration. Check your blood pressure sitting and standing as well to confirm. I would recommend drinking Zero calorie Gatorade, nuun with water or any other electrolyte rich fluids. Remember, if you sweat (you loose salt). Need salt replacement not just water! Read more...

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.

Check pulse. Immediately after exercise and again 1 minute later. Normal heart rate recovery is defined as a decrease in your pulse of 15 to 25 beats per minute. Abnormal heart rate recovery is usually defined as a decrease of 12 or fewer beats per minute. There are several different methods, but this is a good rule of thumb. Checking following 15 min of exercise is good enough, so 30 min is ok too. Read more...
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 more...
