Transcript notes

What is heart rate?
What is a healthy heart rate?
What is a normal resting heart rate?

Heart rate is the number of times your heart beats in a minute. It is measured in bpm or beats per minute. A healthy, Normal resting heart rate is usually between 60 and 80 beats per minute. The resting heart rate of a woman is usually about 10 beats more per minute than that of a man in the same age range, and elite athletes can have a resting heart rate near 40 beats per minute.

This is because Individuals that are fit have a larger stroke volume of the heart. Stoke volume is the amount of blood ejected from the heart per beat. So, the heart of someone who is really fit does not need to beat as many times to have the same output of blood as an unfit person.

Another thing that has a major effect on heart rate is stress. During stressful situations the body releases the hormone adrenaline which causes an increase in heart rate, which is beneficial when you are in danger, but unhealthy in everyday situations.

When you are sitting and resting, your heart beat will be lower, and as you start to move around, your heart beat will increase. When you exercise your heart rate will vary, depending on the intensity of the exercise, your age, the position your body is in, standing vs. lying down, your current fitness level, the type of exercise you are performing, and the temperature and humidity that you are in. Medications can also have a dramatic effect on heart rate.

As we get older, our maximum attainable heart rate decreases. There is a simple equation that is used to estimate a person’s heart rate max. 220 – your age, so for instance, for a 35 year old person, the equation would be 220 – 35 = 185, so their max heart rate should be somewhere around 185 beats per minute. That would be at full physical exertion, like sprinting all out. There is some margin for error of estimating heart rate max, so this number will give you a general idea.

There are many training devices that will gauge your heart rate throughout your day and exercise sessions, or you can do it the old fashioned way put the tips of your fingers on the blood vessel on the thumb side of your wrist. Use a timer on your phone and count the number of beats for 10 seconds, and then multiply that number by 6. For example I counted 11 beats, so 11 times 6 is 66. That means my resting heart rate is at 66.

And that be the basics on heart rates.

  25. Alex Is so on March 9, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I’m 16 this month of December, I never exercise or move around much. I have heart palpations and I checked my heart rate on my bpm monitor, it went over 200 for the first time, 206 bpm heart rate is my highest currently. I usually get 95 to over 100. Note that I always rest and my heart would still be beating so loud out of my chest nearly. Is something wrong with me? I have yet to tell my parents or doctor. Doesn’t seem much of a problem.

  26. Moth_ow on March 9, 2021 at 10:36 pm

  44. Charles Robert on March 9, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I’m 71 and my heart rate was 41-43 so my doctor prescribed Levothyroxine, its now 53-55 with oxygen 97. I thought a slower heart beat was great news because some turtles can live up to 300 years and I was hoping to do at least half that.

  45. Jenipher Hilda on March 9, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Kudos for the Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you ever tried – Riddleagan Piano Master Remedy (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great one of a kind product for revealing an easy way to learn the piano minus the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work buddy got amazing results with it.
