Heart rate jogging

Common Questions and Answers about Heart rate jogging


Avatar n tn I jog for 30 mins twice last week and my heart rate reached 187 bpm. I would to know your opinions regarding my heart rate during exercise. Is that a high heart rate? Is it bad that its close to my maximum heart rate based on 220-age formula (Im 23 years old)? Everyone's opinions are very much welcome. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I went to my doctor to get a physical so I could feel confident to start jogging again. Because my mother had a mild heart attack in her 50s he sent me to a cardiologist as part of my physical exam. I had all the normal tests (treadmill, echocardiogram, etc). At the time the cardiologist told me everything looked normal but at my follow-up visit he had another ultrasound of my heart done. After that he said he thought he saw a small leak in a heart valve but it was nothing to worry about....
Avatar m tn ive bought a heart monitor with chest strap because im starting jogging it says ive got a resting heart rate of around 55 bpm the lowest ive seen it go is 45 is this ok i used to cycle quite a lot is this ok
Avatar n tn yes hello I have noticed at the gym on the tredmill that my heart rate jumps up and down very quickly, it will be 150 one minute and then go to 125 the next and so on it has been as high as 180 and as low as 65 is this dangerous...my blood pressure runs 110/60 but I'm worried about the irregular hb...
Avatar n tn My husband has had a low heart rate for 4 years. Twice in 1998 his heart stopped for about 45 seconds before spontaneously restarting. He was at the doctors office during the first time and on a monitor the second time but unfortunately neither time were there monitors recording these events. His heart rate is between 43 and 55 and he is very tired. He is 47 and in wonderful health except for the heart rate and exhaustion.
Avatar m tn For a well-trained athlete, a normal resting heart rate may be closer to 40 beats a minute. For healthy adults, a lower heart rate at rest generally implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. To measure your heart rate, simply check your pulse. With your palm facing upward, place two fingers on the thumb side of your wrist — or place your index and third fingers on your neck to the side of your windpipe.
Avatar n tn I've using a elliptical trainer. I can get my heart rate up to 122- 130 on this machine. I check my heart rate about every two or three minutes. Sometimes after getting my heart rate up to 120-130 I check and it drops into the 60's, then goes back up. I don't see my Dr. for six months. Why is this happening? Should I quit doing this exersice. I beleive the machine is consistent in reading the heart rate. It doesn't happen everytime I use it.
Avatar f tn It didn't clash with me, so to speak. I was told to watch my temp and heart rate. I felt great. Listen to your body! Don't ignore any minute cues to slow down! Now, this go round- I can't even walk down a grocery store aisle quickly without motion sickness... So no jogging for me anymore, now it clashes.
Avatar f tn i just don't want to overdo it while ttc. i am definitely going to get a heart rate monitor if/when i do conceive so that i can make sure i don't overheat. exercise is really great for stress relief so i'm hoping i'll be able to continue as long as i can. with my first son (in the early 90's) i was advised to walk only, which did seem to help my labour a lot. thanks again super sally and mlb1234!
Avatar f tn At what point does the exercise (jogging, cycling) become anarobic and counterproductive? If I exceed my target heart rate (which for me is about 138) do I risk not getting the weight loss I want? I often exceed the 138. Am I doing myself a disservice?
1012248 tn?1250867546 It would be helpful to have some data such as heart rate in BPM at rest (Taken after sitting quietly for a at least 5 minutes). Then if you are concerned about your exercise HR, give that number too along with a general description of the level of work, e.g., jogging or sprint running...something we can understand.
Avatar n tn I have recently increased the distant and intensity of my exercise and my heart rate at times reaches 160 at times for about 5-8 minutes. (I use a heart rate monitor). I do not have any pain or discomfort feelings. Is this OK or I still need to take it easy?
Avatar n tn I was a sprinter as a child (till the age of 16) and go to the gym 3-4 times a week. My problem is... my heart rate jumps high even from the smallest Jogging and I don’t think it’s normal. On a 20 minute treadmill run on low speed it will reach 180 within 7-10 minutes and I cannot bring it down unless I walk slowly for a minute. Cycling on the other hand will keep me on 150 so no problem there. My partner suggested I might not breathe correctly, yet I doubt it is the cause.
Avatar n tn I walk at least a mile almost everyday. I don't get winded, yet my resting heart rate is 80. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn The last time i was in the gym, Jogged about 15 minutes, felt i didnt push myself to bad,rested for a little bit, went over to the chest press machine and did an 8 rep set ( weight i could do without to much strain) I stopped exercising for the day.. after that 8 reps i couldnt get my heart rate down for probably 30-45 minutes. it probably was about 118-150 when i was done with the 8 reps i felt like i coudnt recover like i was still running.
Avatar m tn four months after heart attack and emergency stenting it seems the cardio rehab sessions are going well. The intensity is within my capability but whilst jogging the heart rate creeps up to 70% of theoretical maximum rather quickly. There is a mild hypertrophy. Will it be possible to see any improvements? Prior to diagnosis, exercise had been a big part of my life but it was abused by high bp (now 120/80) and poor cholesterol. The cardio rehab is excellent but it feels overly cautious.
Brachiosaurus What should my target heart rate be and how should I determine appropriate heart rate ranges to stay within during exercise? I currently own and use a heart rate monitor device that displays results on my phone, so tracking my heart rate is no problem.
897445 tn?1241715899 If it reaches this high, you should be seen right away. Your heart rate at 88 to 100 while relaxing is fine. A heart rate of 130 while walking around is fine. If you want a lower heart beat, you can try exercising more and walking more. My heart beats 130 sometimes at nighttime while trying to sleep. There is nothing wrong with my heart that doctors can find and I have been told the same as you (that it will not hurt me and to just let it beat).
Avatar m tn I have been running up 7 stairs and jogging down the hall 7-8 feet and back, and doing this for 30min-1hr for the last almost a week now. Ive recently been tracking my heart rate by counting how many beats per 10sec and multiplying by 6. My heart rate during my routine stays usually between 27-29 beats per 10 seconds, so 162-174 beats per minute. I dont get too tired at this high rate even after an hour i feel i could keep going on indefinetly.
Avatar m tn Hi, I feel it is a little high for your age as the resting heart rate is normally between 50-80 beats/min. Target heart rate for your age during vigorous activities like running and jogging is 98-166 beats/min. I would suggest you to lose a little weight and also bring this up during your next annual health exam. http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?
Avatar m tn I wasjust wondering if it's true that cardio excercising such as walking, running...etc. really helps lower your heart rate throughout the day? Since last summer I've had anxiety attacks in which I thought were heart problems. My heart would go up to about 120 and I would get really freaked out. After going to the doctors, and cardiologist several times I've realized that it's just anxiety and nothing else.
1674823 tn?1307267220 For some reason, I have a higher heart rate 10 minutes after running/jogging with a heart rate of say 160 bpm, than walking 7 km/h at 10 degrees incline which gives the same heart rate. I don't know why, maybe it's the fact that I'm still afraid of running.. Remember, after exercise you will keep an increased metabolism, your muscles need to recover, your adrenaline levels are still high for some time, etc. which contribute to an increased heart rate.
Avatar n tn When I run or spin I wear a heart rate monitor and I can get my heart rate up into the 180's close to 190. I know that from the chart for my age (34) I shouldnt go above 160. I actually feel fine at these high heart rate and on the Percieved Exersion Scale I would put myself in the 8-9 range of a scale of 1-10. I feel I am working Heavy but not overly heavy or over my max.
Avatar n tn after jogging for maybe a minute and a half, my heart rate is close to 200.. It used to be 150 if i was JUST STANDING UP, and i physically couldnt jog.. Now its around 100, sometimes below when standing, and i can power walk all day long, and jog a little.... for me it was just basic deconditiong.. I wasnt on my feet enough, so when i WAS on my feet, my heart had an exargerrated response to the shift in blood volume.. What helped me was working out, 4 days a week, 45 minutes a day..
Avatar n tn to check heart and lung efficiency The heart rate just may be fixed by something as simple as adding aerobic exercise to your life, cutting back on caffeine, a food allergy. . .it may be a problem in your heart's electrical system. I did not find out my defect until I passed out at my home computer desk one day and I went the cardiac care unit for overnight monitoring. Get thee to a leech, good sir! Have hym poke and prod, and blood let for knowledge! May your answer be a simple one.
Avatar n tn I am 48 and go jogging in gym regularly for l8 months. I use Polar Heart Monitor and it shows me, that after 20 minutes of slow jog (7-8km-h) I started having asymptomatic tachycardia somewhere between 150-207. During exercise my baseline HR is 106 and it jumps to those high frequencies. I stop jogging and it disappears. After few slow paces it is back again. I have been seen by sport doctor 3 times without any conclusion.
