In brief: In the range of

50- 90 bpm(depending on how fast you are walking - as with a rather brisk walk you could range above 100 bpms) While your heart rate increases initially when stand related to gravitation changes on blood flow it often settles rather quickly to range similar to your seated BP's.

In brief: You would be healthy

cardiovascular health is how much power there is in reserve.
A LOT at age 20 under 70 heart rate. http://www.straightforwardfitness.com/target-heart-rate.html http://my.clevelandclinic.org/heart/prevention/exercise/pulse-target-heart-rate.aspx 120's is beginning rate for decent exercise, 160 to 180 is quite a decent work out ! and about 200 is maximal. cannot say in your particular case though.

In brief: 100-170 bpm

In your 20s, the acceptable target heart rate with exercise is 100-170 bpm. This is assuming you do not have any cardiovascular problems and are fit to exercise.
This range is determined by estimating 50-85% of an average maximum heart rate for one's age. For more info check out this site: http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/GettingHealthy/PhysicalActivity/Target-Heart-Rates_UCM_434341_Article.jsp
