Heart rate training running

Common Questions and Answers about Heart rate training running


Avatar m tn I am interested in how a doctor would feel about my direction to her vs high intensity anearobic training she does. Will anearobic training reduce her heart rate over time? Or is this even something to be concerned with?
Avatar n tn s an excellent introduction to heart rate training. It concentrates more on running but the concept is perfectly applicable to any other discipline of sports. Enjoy your training!

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 n tn Mostly ran on treadmill today. Slow 3 speed. Heart rate jumped around 52 to 77 to 98 and back to 52.
Avatar n tn If you are having no symptoms, it should not be a problem. If you want to decrease your heart rate, simply decreasing your running pace. You are training closer to an anaerobic threshold. You will probably feel better if you slow down a bit. Thanks for posting.
Avatar n tn I am interested in training for another full marathon, but I have a problem with my heart rate. I am having a hard time keeping it below 170-175. When it gets that high, I have a hard time continuing to run. I have to stop and rest. I am not really running at a fast pace. Probably around 9:00 minute miles. I recover very quickly and then I can go again. It is really frustrating, because I consider myself very fit. I am 5'5" and I weigh 125 lbs.
Avatar n tn I wear a heart rate monitor to track my running statistics and was surprised to find when I got home that my heart rate for the last third of my run jumped suddenly to consistently over 200 (max 240) compared to my normal 140 or so. Again, I feel O.K. but not great and my heart rate is still a little high several hours later (85 vs. my normal 60-65). I realize my labs are somewhat subclinical. I want to keep training. I am a breastfeeding mom. Would you advise me to seek treatment?
Avatar f tn ve been running for at least 3 years, and recently started training for a half-marathon, and I kept a rate of about 180 bpm for over an hour, but it wasn't particularly strenuous exercise, just long. Any ideas as to why it might be going so high?
Avatar m tn OK however i started to run and my time was over 20 minutes , but problem is I got heart rate during running around 192, as well as my heart rate stayed around 115 three hours later.I am little bit nervous about my goal because I have to get it( job req.).Please could you tell me is that slow recovery dangerous sign , or I am just not fit enough.One more think , might be important, mu heart rate in rest is mostly between 80-100. Thanks in advance for your time to give me an answer.
1012248 tn?1250863946 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 m sure I am fine based on his feedback from 2 years ago , but I am curious about my Heart Recovery rate and if it drops significantly in the first minute and then goes up is normal. My age is 50.
Avatar m tn You may want to try doing interval training to burn more fat, alternating sprints at about 85% of your max heart rate with intervals of a more moderate pace. The latest fitness research supports interval training as the most efficient way to get aerobically fit and lose weight as well. Good luck!
Avatar n tn The AHA recommends a maximum target heart rate of 170 for your age. The 100% heart rate should be around 200. I would assume that your setting of "4" would be 4 mph. If that is the case, that would be a slow jogging pace. Some people can walk at 4mph, so it's not very fast and consequently one would think it would be perhaps in the middle of your target zone.
Avatar n tn yes ive heard that too that having your heart rate go up and down like that while working out is good for burning more calories, and strengthening your heart.
Avatar f tn The highest it has gotten is 216 but usually its around 208 while running and only a few minutes into running. My resting heart rate is 48-56 and throughout the day its 70-85. Am I causing damage to my heart or cardiovascular system by running with this high of a heart rate. I don't feel that much pain when it gets that high the normal pain of running I would say. Is this cause to go to the doctor?
Avatar n tn He said that it could be hyperkinetic heart which just means a normally higher heart rate, but heart is fine. I agree that not everyone will be in the "normal" range. I'm sure if your doctor was concerned about anything he would have told you.
Avatar n tn but did not have nearly my normal level of energy. I wear a heart rate monitor to track my running statistics and was surprised to find when I got home that my heart rate for the last third of my run jumped suddenly to consistently over 200 (max 240) compared to my normal 140 or so. Again, I feel O.K. but not great and my heart rate is still a little high several hours later (85 vs. my normal 60-65). I realize my labs are somewhat subclinical. I want to keep training.
Avatar m tn I have asked my cardiologist this same question and was told that pushing your heart above it's maximum predicted heart rate for long periods can damage the heart. Also, there is not benefit to your health by exercising at this rate, the most good is done between 75 85% of your max predicted heart rate. I asked for the same reason, keeping my heart rate at that level got to the point that it did not seem like much of a workout.
335551 tn?1195373546 There are many things I discovered about my heart when I started running and wearing a heart rate monitor. First, is that I have a maximum heart rate of 221 as recorded by the HRM! I could not believe it that I even bought a more expensive HRM only to get the same results. At conversational pace, I am at 190 beats per minute. Second, I experienced skipped beats last March. It woke me up at midnight. This coincided with runs of about 13 miles long.
6377158 tn?1380751685 but, the fact that you are only 18 and you have a normal heart rate with exercise suggests that you have quite the healthy heart! Chest pain while running can certainly indicated coronary artery blockage in older patients, but in young females it is usually musculoskeletal in nature and related to the exercise itself (which means it is totally benign!).
Avatar m tn Over many, many years, with high blood pressure and being very overweight, the inside of your ventrical gets thicker, and the volume inside therefore decreases, decreasing stroke volume and causing your heart rate to become higher and your heart then has to work harder to pump the same amount of blood, which over many years causes the ventricular walls to stiffen. I hope that clarifies some of it.
Avatar n tn Of course this is a generalization and some people are able to safely exercise at a higher heart rate. The question regarding the safety of your elevated heart rate prompts another question of whether or not your heart is still in a normal rhythm when it is going that fast or if you have gone into a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT).
1844885 tn?1330536610 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 m tn need help to lower my pulse rate or heart rate I've lost 25 labs in 2 months so eating healthier,drinking lots of water running/fast walk 4 miles a day.I have a functional (physical) test for my job .they put me under stress in a cardio work out and need my pulse to go back under 100 with ih 5 min what can I do or take to get it down.Right now 88 rest getting up to 160 like they want me to just can't get it down in time.
86819 tn?1378947492 85F, 65%rh. Resting pulse rate after working and lifting in the the lab ~ 50-55. Resting heart rate this am ~45-48. Question: what stimulates the parasympathetic system to effect pulse rate? Exercise levels do not seem in line with pulse rate. Was feeling depressed yesterday without any reason.
