I have a question about my heart rate going above 200 bpm is that bad? I dont feel tired when I run or breath that hard. Any idea if I should just slow it down

How are you measuring your heart rate?

How long do you maintain 200 bpm?

I use those hand grips on the cardio machines. It usualy stays between 180-200+ bpm for 10 min

That's almost 90% of your max (based on the hr formula) ... which is insane for 10 minutes. I don't even know if that's possible or not ... either you're a machine or your hr monitor is getting interference from other electronic equipment in the area.

yeah i think thats probably happening also i think this guy is just a long distance runner so hes accustomed to running long. Also 200 bpm thats does insanely high i doubt its that high you should try to to count it yourself slo get your resting hr.
