exercise and heart rates

Postby Jinger » Sun Dec 10, 2017 3:32 pm

In a few weeks i'll be 70. recommendation are Max hr=150 safe range from 75hr to 128hr ( 50%-85% of max hr). My question is, I've got a stationary bike. I get to 75hr in a couple of minutes, but takes a good five- six minutes to get to 128. Should I add those 5-6 minutes onto the 35 minute workout?

First of all no two humans are the same. So don't put too much faith in the numbers. I am 5 months away from 70 and can reach high high rates of 175 beats per minutes. First thing first. Enjoy your workout without looking at heart rates numbers. Do 20 or 40 minutes depending on how you feel on that day. Every day is different depending how good a sleep you had the night before, how your digestive system performed the day before and so on. The most important part is that you do it!

Peace and Good Health.

Thanks Jaque, makes sense.. 175 wow, would it be rude to call you an animal? In a good way.
