Just curious, and can you put in how much cardio you do if you experienced the adrenaline-soaked polling action... I counted mine for 30 seconds then multiplying by 2




So 62 BPM, run 5k 6 days a week





Yours?

My heart rate is always rediculasly high. I remember when I first got into working out I was super fit because I got into it when I was really scrawny (I've taken some time off so I'm not as fit as I once was) my heart rate was like 120. The teacher looked at me and was like "thats just not possible". Basicly she said that theres a syndrom for some people where anytime your heart rate is taken the person will raise it.

Mine is 62 as well. I don't do any specific cardio right now, but I do play soccer and train in martial arts every week.

check it within the first 10 minutes of waking in the morning. That should be the lowest it will be during the day.
First thing in the morning I'm around 55.
I haven't done cardio in about 2 years

Timed it for 30 seconds, multiplied by 2, and I got 76, I rarely do cardio, I need to do more. Nice resting heart rate aka, it shows that all that cardio you do really does make a difference.

Question, a low resting heart rate means your heart is just so strong it has to pump less times to get all the blood through your body? So basically, low heart resting heart rate = stronger heart?

Exactly the same here :)

Cardio is not really something I shy away from but I'm bulking at the moment and I don't think I could handle eating anything more than I already do. I'm looking forward to cutting and the opportunity to improve my ailing fitness.

Nice one, that's the kind of fitness level I aspire to but have never achieved.

I remember before I started a weight training regime, my heart rate was 35-40, I did a lot of uphill walking every day. I do not do that anymore, and measuring now, it's 60-65.

A low resting heart rate in athletic persons is usually related to increased efficiency of the circulatory system. Such efficiencies include an increase in the volume of blood pumped with each heart stroke, a more efficient oxygen extraction from the blood, and an increase in overall blood volume. RHR is also reduced by factors that have little to do with efficiency of the circulatory system, such as neural adaptations to training. A low resting heart rate can also be an indication of underlying medical disorders, such as a thyroid problem.

Many elite athletes have low resting heart rates. However, there are several noteworthy exceptions. Marathon runner and Olympic gold medal winner Frank Shorter supposedly had a resting heart rate of approximately 70bpm.

Resting heart rate is usually measured shortly after waking. Your resting heart rate while at the doctors office or reading this post is probably higher than your after waking RHR. My resting heart rate is often lower after I have been watching TV for a long time than after waking.



You a marathon runner or something? Lance Armstrong has a resting heart rate of 32-34.

I do several forms of cardio at a variety of intensities including fixed pace running, HIIT, fixed pace cycling, cycling intervals, and elliptical trainer work. I do weight training approximately 3 out of every 4 days, and I do cardio approximately 3 out of every 4 days.

Mine is somewhere between 60 and 80 at any given time, its been like that as long as I can remember. I've been in extremely bad health(obese, high cholesterol, no exercise) and in extremely good health(very lean, clean arteries, lots of cardio) and its never dropped below 75 resting on average. Strangely enough, I check my RHR very often...its kind of compulsive I guess.


I've convinced myself that there must be *some* advantage to having a higher resting heartrate. Perhaps it is better for anaerobic athletes? My heart rate jumps up to no higher than say, 100 or 120 after a set of any given exercise, even squats and deads. It only takes about 30 seconds for my heartrate to normalize on most occasions. Could that just be coincidence? When doing cardio I find it hard to really get my heartrate above 160. To get my heart rate above 150 I need to run at about 6 miles an hour and you know I can't keep that up for long. The only time I really get my heart beating really fast, it seems, is during 100m sprints. Am I just a total freak?

60 BPM. I do cardio about four times per week. It's very high intensity: HR is usually above 160 for at least 15 minutes and then I lay low for a little bit for my cool down.

last time I had it checked it was about 57 bpm

that was when I was doing no cardio at all

now I'm doing a CrossFit workout on Saturdays and flag football twice a week...haven't rechecked my resting HR though, but if I had to guess I'd say it's gone down slightly

For the past 2 months i've started running 3-4 times a week (4-6 miles each time) with a HRM to make sure I dont overwork my heart. I took my bpm on my lunch break the other day and it was 57.

I've found having better cardio fitness has allowed me to lift more effciently as I get out of breath/lightheaded less quickly but it definately stunts my muscle growth burning all those calories running. Still, my strength gains are currently going fairly well nonetheless.

Wow this thread is old.

My resting heart rate (taken at work) was about 66 bpm. Interestingly, it's about the same as it was when I was swimming 15,000 yards per week and running 5k's before I started lifting regularly. I do very little cardio now.

Mine hovers around 90. I've been losing weight and doing more cardio to remedy this, this CANNOT go on much longer.

Mine always seems rather high i do a minor amount of cardio on the bike in the gym, using the hill interval program for 24 minutes at a time. I monitor it on the bike and im usually anywhere between 90-165 bpm at different times and on different hills.

I have not checked my RHR since i was like 12, maybe i should check it. I attribute my high HR to my size though mostly, at 6'4" and 230+ it takes an awful lot of beats to pump the blood back up from my legs, which are rather large coincidentally.

Any other taller+heavier folks notice the same trend?

Last time I had it checked it was 45BPM. That was last year though. I'm sure it's higher now.

09-14-2007, 09:01 AM
The hell, I just did mine and it's 80. I would have thought lower since I have no problems related to blood pressure or hearts or anything. Though I do have to make a phone call and I despise that so maybe it threw it off a little.

EDIT: Just did it again and now it's 70. I'm all screwed up.

-Superman-
09-14-2007, 09:31 AM
Had a medical exam today. It is 79 bpm. Back in the day when I ran track it was around 50 bpm. I need to stop this 'getting big' and start 'getting fit'. :D











Maybe not haha.

KingJustin
09-14-2007, 09:46 AM
I got a physical a couple days ago. It was 52bpm, but I'm guessing that if I didn't workout and I took it at night I would be slightly lower.

I'm just under 6'5" and mine is 48-50 (I checked three times, twice I got 48, the other was 50).

That's pretty remarkable for me, because the last time I checked I was in the mid to high 60's. I guess all these Crossfit type of workouts have been paying off.

If your pulse really is that irregular you may have arrhythmia. Some people live with it their entire lives and see little or no side effects, but generally it's not a good thing. It can be genetic, or it can be caused by damage to the heart muscle. However my first guess would be that you're simply not good at monitoring your own pulse. Go see a doctor if you're concerned.

hmmm... but when I have been to the doctors in the past and they checked my pulse no one brought it up. Maybe you are right. I prolly just suk at taking my own pulse. I dunno. It's weird though because some of the beats are so easy to feel.

I read an article a while back that was saying powerlifting greatly stresses the cardiovascular system and was claiming that the rest heart rate of high ranked powerlifters heart rates compete of that of olympic runners.

Last I was checked about a week ago at the doctor it was 48 and I rarely do any specific cardio

52bpm when I checked it 2 weeks ago. I never do cardio per say. I was very active for a long time, but school has kept my cross training goals to a minimum. Haven't done steady cardio in 5 years.

Which doesn't make too much sense... or rather is too generic... considering an abundance of other factors are taken into consideration with resting heart rate.. such as genetics... plenty of Olympic athletics have heart rates above the so called "athletic zone" .... still without a doubt the lower the better to a degree.
