Avatar n tn list=PL9FxWnfq1Oyo9pHHUPHeQne4iqoZ4zTN_ Figure your heart rate by this formula The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
Avatar n tn You can also use any number of target heart rate calculators to get your heart rate zone, but many of them do not incorporate your resting heart rate (which makes it a bit more accurate). Below is an example of the Karvonen formula for a 23 year old person with a resting heart rate of 65 beats per minute (to get your resting heart rate, take your pulse for one full minute.) 220 - 23 (age) = 197 197 - 65 (resting heart rate) = 132 132 65% (low end of heart rate) OR 85% (high end) = 85.
Avatar n tn Your max heart rate w. stents would not be the same as with another human who doesn't have the the same issue as you do. The safe thing to do is call the doc's office that did the procedure and ask him or her what your safety zone would be. You definately don't want to undo all of the great things that the stents are doing for you by damaging them....
Avatar m tn My resting heart rate is normal, but when I do cardio my heart rate jumps to the above zone (168 bpm+) very quickly and stays there. I've lived in Colorado for 3 years and don't know if this is an altitude, lung (asthma), or heart problem. Any ideas?

Avatar n tn I also have high heart rate during exercise and low resting heart rate. Tests report "mild to moderately reduced exercise tolerance", negative EST, rare PACs, normal left vent, no defects, and 65% ejection fraction. My cardiologist says there is no problem and my physician says ignore my heart monitor. For my own understanding, I did a Conconi test to find my actual peak heart rate. Now, I slow my exercise when I reach 90% of my actual peak heart rate.
Avatar n tn If so, you need to perhaps step back on your exercise. Get to your target heart rate zone, and as you become more physically fit and you no longer reach and maintain that target heart rate with the exercises you were doing before, increase the difficulty of the exercises to get yourself into that target heart rate zone again. However, if even a small amount of exercise is getting you way above that target heart rate, I'd definitely suggest asking a doctor.
Avatar m tn I just recently purchased a heart rate monitor for my cardio workouts. However, I've noticed that frequently I exceed my max target rate zone (90%). Am I doing more harm than good? I'm not overweight and don't smoke and in reasonably good health.
Avatar n tn Basically, she breaks up your heart rate into 5 zones. Zone 3 is 70-80% of your target heart rate and results in increased aerobic and cardiovascular fitness. Sounds like you are training in high Zone 4 or even Zone 5. This level is for elite athletes and should only be visited for short periods by normal folk. You may want to spend more time doing light cardio. I agree with greendave, as a lot of us go full out and end up sustaining an injury or something worse.
Avatar f tn i agree with them when it comes to trying to build muscle however if you are trying to slim down id definetely do cardio first because that will get your blood pumping and your heart rate up to a fat burning zone.
Avatar f tn Your cardiovascular system improves when you reach HR's 70-80% of your target heart rate during exercise. Check out Sally Edward's book Heart Zone training. It seems to be helping me. Hope things get better.
Avatar m tn I have been on a diet for 2 months and i joined the Gym 2 weeks ago it was my 4th time of attendance today, i did 10 mins on rowing machine, 30 mins on cross trainer, then i did 15 mins on treadmill my heartrate was in the cardio zone when towards the end of my treadmill exercise my heart rate fell from 120 beats per minute to 60 and it was still dropping so i stopped the treadmill it really worried me, what could have caused this?
Avatar f tn Just started wearing a heart rate monitor to make sure I stay in my target heart rate zone. For the last 2 months, coincidentally while I have been wearing the monitor during exercise, my heart rate will increase dramatically as soon as I start to run. For instance, my target zone is 122-147. But the minute I move from walking to running, my heart rate begins to move to the top of my zone. Soon, I am running in the 170s and 180s.
Avatar f tn 67 x 23 (age)) = 191 191 - 65 (resting heart rate) = 126 126 65% (low end of heart rate zone) OR 85% (high end) = 82 OR 107 82 + 65 (resting heart rate) = 147 107 + 65 (rhr) = 172 The target heart rate zone for this person would be 147 to 172 To get your resting heart rate, take your pulse for one full minute when you first wake up in the morning so have a watch at your bedside don't get out of bed and take your pulse.
Avatar f tn I believe that's your target heart rate, a zone that allows you maximim conditioning, and a rate that you shoukd be able to maintain for a period of time. Years ago, I was a highly trained amateur athlete, and I could get my heart rate above 200 during "full smoke" sprints of short duration. So I wouldn't let that guideline influence you. But I would add that the return to normal respiration shouuld be a ramp down process.
Avatar f tn Your target zone during exercise is 100-170 for someone in their 20s. There's no need to over-do exercise, there's little benefit to beating yourself up and to the contrary we're learning that excessive exercise can do more harm than good to cardiac muscle.
Avatar n tn There are charts, probably available through a google search, that will give heart rate date related to aerobic exercise. These charts will suggest what rates based on your age will put you in an aerobic exercise zone. However, given the information you have offered, I would most certainly have your doctor guide you.
Avatar n tn So, the next time you exercise try to decrease the intensity of the exercise and keep your heart no higher than 150bpm. When raising your heart rate to 170 that is only for trained athletes who want to increase their cardiovascular level. To stay healthy and stay in the fat burning zone, 170 is much to high.
Avatar m tn I take a medication to lower my heart rate. However, it would be preferred to lower heart rate through exercise, as side effects of mediation I do not care for. Also, continual stress may raise heart rate (Type A personality). May learn some relaxation techniques. Even though I do take medication for heart rate, I am able to exercise in the heart zones, and have seen improvement in my blood pressure. Some improvement in HR. Acutally, lately, sometimes my BP is low now.
Avatar f tn Everyones heart rate ranges are different. Person A might be able to reach a max HR of 180 while person B (same gender/age/weight/height) might beable to reach a HR of 200+. Generally speaking most people's heart rate falls around 220bpm - age ie for a 21 year old 220 - 21 = 199 (max heart rate This is just a general assumption based upon the general population. You may want to look into a "heart rate zone" test.

Avatar m tn Hi, Regarding heart rate: Your resting heart rate is fine, and does not put you in any danger zone. Your blood pressure is fine, but your diastolic (lower number) pressure is a little bit high, which is common if you smoke and have some kg's overveight. Regarding heart size: There are many causes (and types) of heart enlargement, what matters is if your heart is dilated, or if the walls are enlarged (thicker) or if the heart itself just is a bit overdimensioned.

1211508 tn?1343083205 My blood pressure is sometimes running a little low, and that's causing a stronger heart rate response. Heart rate response is very variable. Where some people struggle to get their heart rate up, some people have a quick response. Remember, the body is built to fight or run away from threats and dangers.
Avatar n tn I recently started running again to hopefully reduce my blood pressure and get off the atenolol. Shouldn't my heart rate be in the 140 zone in order to get full cardio benefit? Is this the Atenolol that's affecting my exercise rate? What's the point in running if I can't get my heart rate up? I'm positive the Atenolol effects my resting rate because before I started taking it it was 60 and now it's usually around 45.Any suggestions to maximize my cardio workout while taking Atenolol?
