Avatar n tn Check out Sally Edwards Heart Zones Training, it has a lot of information. They say that by spending more time in 70-80%, can achieve good results. Sounds like you may be going too high. Perhaps check you BP once in awhile, to see if you are indeed exercising correctly. Also, check resting pulse rate, as high HR may indicate overtraining. Hope this helps and I'm sure someone else on this forum can give you some good or better information.
Avatar n tn However, now I have found Heart Zone training (look into this, a book by Sally Edwards). It breaks up heart rates into 5 zones. Zone 3 (70-80% of your target heart rate) will give you improvements in cardio fitness and help to lower your heart rate. Get a heart rate monitor to follow heart rate. When I used to work out, I was in Zone 4 and even 5 too often and overtrained. This Heart Zone training has helped me out in lowering my blood pressure and keeping an eye on my pulse rate.
Avatar m tn Your heart rate should recover quicker than it sounds like it is. May want to look into Heart Zones training. Sally Edwards has a good book on this. Basically, she divides your heart training rate into 5 zones and most aerobic benefits are found in zone 3, 70-80% of your target heart rate. 80-90% should be used if you are in good shape. This does seem to be helping me with my exercise and I have seen some improvement in heart rate and blood pressures using this system.
Avatar n tn I have also purchased a heart rate monitor and use this to monitor my heart rate. A good way to figure your target heart rate (THR) is 220- your age. This would equal 190. This is your maximum THR and should only be reached on occasion and should not be used for training purposes (in other words sustaining your heart rate at this rate for a prolonged period of time). You may look into purchasing Sally Edwards' book Heart Zones- Heart Rate Monitor Guidebook. They have it on Amazon.
Avatar m tn Could she be overtraining a bit? Sounds like she is very active. Does she take some recovery time? I have mentioned this on this site before, but may look into Heart Zone training. Sally Edward's has a good book, Heart Zone Training. It gives specific heart training zones to improve cardiovascular fitness. 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.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you may be overtraining. Maybe you started too much vigorous exercise too soon. Maybe try a lower intensity cardio program like walking or light bike riding. Check out Sally Edward's book Heart Zone Training. 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.
Avatar n tn Exercise. Start low intensity walking program. Your heart rate sounds high and the exact same thing happened to me. I was turned down ffrom giving blood for slightly elevated temp and heart rate was high. If you are overweight, lose some weight. As long as your heart is okay structurally, may want a Dr. to take a look at this, you should be able to exercise. The walking will strengthen your heart and make it more efficient and thus slow it down.
Avatar n tn I have been reading about heart palpitations (skipped heart beats) and have some questions. I have been "spinning" now for about 7 years. I normally work out in the 80% zone for strenth training 3-4 times a week. At times I'll take a month off and hit the lower zones around 70% mhr. About a week in the lower zone and my heart starts this non sense.
Avatar m tn HR may be elevated due to injury and being out of shape. You said you had gained a few pounds recently. Perhaps a good goal would be to get back into shape. A good resting heart rate, I would say, would be below 80 bpm. Probably better to be below 75. If you are fit, even lower (not below say 50, unless you are an elite athlete). The best way to lower heart rate is exercise, cardiovascular. You may think about starting a walking program (30-45 minutes most days of the week).
Avatar n tn If it is still high, I would say take a day off or less strenuous workout, walking. Try Heart Zones Training.
Avatar n tn I have a st Jude Aortic valve and a Pomanary Carpinter Edwards valve I have had the Aotic valve since 1992 the Carpenter Edwards valve since 2002 my Question is How long do they last ? I'm now haveing signs of the pressure in my RV is elavated. is this a sign of the valve weaking and would they replace it in a 66 year old woman who has had four open heart surgries so far ? Thank you for your help.
952618 tn?1246287513 I got a Star Edwards Heart Valve in 1977. Now I have to undergo a magnetic resonance tomography of my right ear. Is this possible with this aortic Star Edwards Valve?
Avatar f tn my aunty is using both st jude and starr edwards mechanical heart valve (starr edwards at mitral and st jude at aorta) due to this we are so worried because some physician said starr edwards not a good valve so please tell me more detail about this and tell me the life span of this valves
231441 tn?1333892766 One rational approach is what I have been using in my triathlon (and has been very successful for me, and even more so now, I guess) is Heart Rate based training. This means that I nearly always work in my aerobic zones. For me, this means I keep my heart rate less than 140 bpm (usual target is about 134 for a moderate effort, but for an easy effort my HR can be around 120 bpm - note that my maximum HR is about 180 bpm and I have achieved this in all out efforts).

1194053 tn?1267443212 Strength training and calisthenics for about 40 minutes. Mainly stayed in zones 2/3 with occasional time in zone 4.
1211508 tn?1343079605 But am I running a significantly higher risk of having a heart attack during training than if I dial it back to a much easier pace, say 65-75% of my max HR? In other words, would a healthier practice be to workout in lower heart rate zones, since we aren't paid athletes? NO, we won't be as fit, but perhaps we reap enough heart healthy benefits from easier or more moderate paced workouts without putting our hearts at risk.

Dear Lily, Did you have a follow-up question? You last posting was blank.
Avatar n tn s book on Heart Zone Training. She says fitness improves from 70-80% of target heart rate (calculated by greendave). However, should slowly improve to this. Working out too hard can cause increase in resting heart rate. I am on 25 mg Atenolol because resting heart rate was too high. I wish I had known about this stuff two years ago, as I would have taken training more seriously. I am able to get my heartrate into proper zone during exercise and this has improved my blood pressure.
Avatar n tn Everytime I click on post i get this message stating that the maximum postings have been acheived and they open it up for later time zones. Somebody needs to tell the good doctors that there are 7 times zones in the USA. And other than sitting at a PC from 8am to 5PM in all of the time zones one is SOL, one may never get to post. It's the middle of the night right now for me.

Avatar f tn t have to work hard at all to maintain a heart rate of about 136 or so and I may start to puff a little at 142 or so. If I am to follow the charts for exercise zones, and to not exceed my maximum heart rate, I am working in the anaerobic (hardcore training) range. I want to work in the weight control to the aerobic/cardio training range but I am barely working to keep my heart rate in the appropriate range. I sweat quite a bit but I don't puff much.

Avatar n tn Hello! I'm 31 and currently 17+1 weeks pregnant. I got pregnant thanks to IVF. The triple-screen done at 16th week of pregnancy showed lower levels of hcg, but due to IVF incorrect dating of the preganancy can be excluded. The test placed me a low risk for trisomies 13, 21 and 18 and neural tube defects. However, I got recommendation for detailed ultrasound screening to search for the signs of Edwards syndrome.
