The average Max Heart Rate for a super fit 20 year old is 200 BPM, so you must not be getting accurate data from what you're using. We suggest you stop and find your heart rate manually to see where you are. If it truly is getting that high, you should consult a doctor. You may have a condition that is impacting your heart rate because that is definitely not in the normal range.
ok I have been to a heart doctor they say my heart is good but I have been in the gym for over a year and a normal walking speed my heart is at it 133 max I never can run I go to 150 and I am not even breathing hard and I am unaware that I am over doing it do you think I may ever improve
Keep at it and get out of your comfort zone with your exercise intensities as often as you can, so long as your doctor gives you the okay. We also suggest HIIT workouts as a means to increase fitness level.
started working out so I been reading a lot so you mention you only go up to 140 isn't that a good thing? i was reading that in elite athletes heart rate is way lower than the rest of the people🤔 your number are way lowet because you are in better physical condition than the rest. that what I read idk however if you know something' about it please let us know
Hi there! 140 max is really only mentioned for pregnant people, and even that is just a generalization. Everyone has their own max heart rate and 140 is actually not very high. Can you tell me where in the video you are talking about because we all go well over 140 all the time. Thank you!
Well first I would definitely check that your Heart Rate zones are set up correctly for you. You really shouldn't be able to stay in the upper end of your Heart Rate zone (95%+) for that long, so if you are, your Heart Rate zones are most likely not set up accurately for you. Check out this video we made that can help you figure out if it's set up correctly!
How can I tell if my heart rate reading is accurate? Is My heart rate belt right?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_CCi2hufH4&t=1s
great video ! I'm 18 years old girl, I started going to gym and exercising on the treadmill at a speed of 4.5 increase it to 5.5 for 10 minutes ...then I found that my heart rate was about 180 beat/min which felt really fast and I was having a bit of trouble breathing, and my blood pressure dropped to 90/50 and I felt reallt dizzy ...I really want to know if this is normal or not ? and if it is not normal then what should I do to lose weight ??
thanks in advance
Hey Alaa, glad to hear you went to see your doctor and got some advice. I would definitely get some more advice from your doctor on how to best exercise given that you are fasting 16 hours a day. That definitely leaves you susceptible to dehydration like you found out. The key to remember is to exercise safely and your doctor will probably have the best recommendation for you to do that. Ask your doctor about Spinning and tell him/her it is a low impact exercise on a Spin bike that is good at burning calories and building lean muscle mass. Here's a link to check out more about Spinning: http://www.studiosweatondemand.com/getting-started/ Your gym may have Spin bikes you could use and then watch our videos!

Thanks a lot fir your help❤
There's something that I forgot to tell you which is that I'm a muslim so I'm fasting for 16 hours a day for a whole month. And I go the gyn while I'm fasting because the coach told that it's much better to train while I'm fasting to lose more weight.
Actually I've just visited the doctor today and he told me that all of this happened because I was dehydrated as I was fasting for 16 hours and he told that I have a problem with the parasympathetic nerve which causes a vaso vegal response which drops the blood pressure.
I'd be really grateful If you told me what is spinning and how to do it cause I don't know anything about it !
And again thanks a lot ❤
Hi Alaa. That sounds scary, and to be honest, not good. I think you should tell a doctor you trust about this event. You have to see if there's anything else going on, and get cleared for physical activity. Trust me, the goal will be to get you moving as soon as possible, but you have to do it safely. And when you get that clearance, do try Spinning. It's a great low impact way to burn fat, build muscle, and strengthen your heart, lungs, and body overall.
I am on a Beta Blocker, but I use a monitor. I do a test provided by several different HR monitor apps to determine my own zone. (Unfortunately, some apps give you a number that is low enough to create a low enough ceiling in each zone. So, you choose a different app and do it again.)
My max is only 137 based on the tests. But it works accurately with RPE.
NOT low enough, I mean. And it varies by the time of day. Even though my Beta Blocker is extended release, the ceiling is higher at night. Ideally, you should see a cardiologist who will do a professional stress test. And that's your number.
Thank you for the valuable information. I just have a small concern, if I stay at %80 heart rate most of my work out, will I be burning fat? Or fat loss is only restricted for between %50 to %70. Thank you again so much.
+Ksa KENZO Fat burn and Calorie burn in general can happen in zones all the way up to 90%. Just depends on who you ask, but most definitely 80 percent is classified as being in your fat burning zone. So is 85%. And 50% isn't gonna burn a whole lot my friend. Try going 70 to 85% max, and push it now and then for short bursts (30 seconds or less) to really see gains in fat loss and fitness level. :)
Great video really, very useful! I am gonna try this Karvonen Formula as well.I have one more comment about being math part is very difficult for calculating your heart zones early in the morning etc.I mean come on people, all you have to do put those numbers into a calculator.. a simple multiplication. Don't smoke too much, save some of your brain cells.. You might need them 😉
+Bijoy Yohannan You can take your heart rate by hand, just find your pulse and then take it for 15 seconds and multiply it by 4 to get your current heart rate. There are also devices you can get like our SWEAT Fit Accessory Pack that has a heart rate strap and computer. So no phone needed for that. Here's a link: http://www.studiosweatondemand.com/getting-started/accessory-packs/ Hope that helps!
Coded or non-coded hart rate transmitter (on the chest strap). Not every H.R.T will sync up with every computer (H.R.receiver). When an activity or use of a piece of equipment becomes second nature, it's easy to leave out little details.
+TheComeback2life - Well without going to a lab to be tested basically it means where you are at the point where what you are doing is not sustainable. Part of that depends on your heart and lungs, and part depends on how your legs (muscles) will hold up. Usually we're referring to your heart and lungs though. When you begin to gasp for air and you literally have to stop... that is your threshold!
+Dave Thawley Hi Dave- that can be true for sure. That's a really challenging concept to relay to the general population to understand in a short video clip so we just try to relay things in more laymen's talk. We could talk for hours on this right!
In our opinion that's probably OK most days, but some schools of thought say only 3 max intense workouts per week. Go more off how you feel and the results you get. If you feel good and you're seeing good results, it can't be a bad thing! A day of rest is always a good thing, so yes, at least one per week.
Came here by accident and thought I´d stay for a good laugh but unfortunately that was pretty well informed :P One thing, though: there are plenty of good reasons to stay above your threshold for more than 30secs, classic vo2max training is performed as intervals of 3-8mins, usually ~5 at an effort thats above your threshold zone. anaerobic capacity is usually trained with efforts of 30s-3mins at an even higher pace. Everything <30s is usually performed to target neuromuscular capacity (sprint). But I see why you simplified that, even though these stimuli can be highly effective they are also very taxing and stressful and should be utilized intelligently by people with a sufficient aerobic base.
+netfischer That was a really honest and nice response. I thought I saw a more detailed reply, but this is all I see here. I just wanted to tell you that I totally get what you're saying and that I appreciate your opinion, even if I didn't appreciate your initial tone. And the response I started to read, then it seemed like it disappeared, made me laugh out loud because it's so true that people get more animated, mean and sit on a high horse behind a computer. I really did giggle at your honest response. Refreshing and appreciated. And I'm also one to not just delete a comment unless it's profane or abusive. It's a free country after all! And it gives the opportunity for discussion and learning. Have a great night!
Your intro wasn't very inviting here, but I decided to read on. Almost a back handed compliment, wouldn't you say? Ha. And, yes, what you're saying is true, but not necessarily for the general population, which is more our audience. Does that make sense?
On today’s market there are many products with such orientation, but most popular is advertised brand Viagra tablets.
Appropriate tests show a positive result, which is about thirty per cent of all subjects. But here it is necessary to take into account the psychological aspect, since a positive result will not be at the unwillingness of sexual intimacy.
Cialis is yet another pill for impotence. Cialis and Viagra can be called brothers. Effectiveness of tablet lasts for about 30 hours. Cialis action when compared to Viagra, is faster. Cialis acts on the walls of blood vessels, preventing them from relaxing, thanks to the influence of substances that trigger it.
Cialis is admissible to the use of alcoholic beverages. The drug takes effect quickly, and the action is very long. What is best Cialis Viagra or Levitra
