heart beat rate


Did you know that your heart rate can be an important health gauge? And so, even if you’re not an athlete, or not even remotely considering becoming one, knowing your heart rate can help you monitor your fitness level and can potentially help spot developing health problems.

Heart rate, or pulse, refers to the number of times the heart beats per minute. Resting heart rate refers to the heart pumping the lowest amount of blood needed. The resting heart rate for most individuals is usually between 60 and 100 beats per minute. You will be able to take your pulse on your wrist, inside your elbow, side of your neck or top of your foot.

While you may not be an aspiring athlete, it is still beneficial to include some exercise into your daily regime. Monitor your resting heart rate as you exercise frequently, and you can see improvements in your resting heart rate over time. Not only does exercise help lower your resting heart rate, it also helps reduce stress and you can be on your way to finding your balance in life and staying happy!

How Other Factors Affect Heart Rate.

Air temperature: When temperatures (and the humidity) soar, the heart pumps a little more blood, so your pulse rate may increase, but usually no more than five to 10 beats a minute.

Body position: Resting, sitting or standing, your pulse is usually the same. Sometimes as you stand for the first 15 to 20 seconds, your pulse may go up a little bit, but after a couple of minutes it should settle down.

Emotions: If you’re stressed, anxious or “extraordinarily happy or sad” your emotions can raise your pulse.

Body size: Body size usually doesn’t change pulse. If you’re very obese, you might see a higher resting pulse than normal, but usually not more than 100.

Medication use: Meds that block your adrenaline (beta blockers) tend to slow your pulse, while too much thyroid medication or too high of a dosage will raise it

What is Your Resting Heart Rate?

According to the National Institute of Health, the average resting heart rate: for children 10 years and older, and adults (including seniors) is 60 – 100 beats per minute. for well-trained athletes is 40 – 60 beats per minute.

What should be Your Ideal Heart Rate For Fat Burn Initiation ?

Figure out your max heart rate (Max Heart Rate = 220 – your age). And then determine your fat-burning range, which is 60% to 70% of your max heart rate. Use a fitness app, like Wahoo Fitness, MapMyFitness, or RunKeeper, to calculate your 5 heart rate

What is Maximum Heart Rate?

It is recommended that you exercise within 55 to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate for at least 20 to 30 minutes to get the best results from aerobic exercise. The MHR (roughly calculated as 206.9 minus your age) is the upper limit of what your cardiovascular system can handle during physical activity.
