    Heart Rate

    Hey guys.

    So my resting heart rate is right around 62 bpm. I checked my heart rate yesterday near the end of my workout and it was roughly 132 bpm. Is that too high compared to my resting? Should i take longer breaks or is it beneficial to have a higher heart rate?

    If you are talking about a resistance training workout then it's irrelevant. It's common for high intensity training to spike your HR but you shouldn't let this limit your efforts.

    I doubt that 132 is an issue for you unless you're having it under the control of beta-blockers. 132 would be high for me (old and on beta-blockers). If you're 30 your max is around 190 with a targeted exercise rate between 95 and 162. Your resting heart rate is very normal for your age so you're probably not a well trained athlete.

    I wear a HR watch all the time when I work out. It can fool you.

    When I was deadlifting and lying on the floor crying to my mother and HR through the roof my watch showed 125 bpm.

    Watches are not always good for weight lifting bc of the pressure in your forearms. For running etc its superb.

    If you have a HR belt it will be acurate.


    But ofc it works OK sometimes. I was at max HR 179 bpm when doing squats on tuesday.

    Usually my max HR is between 155-165 when lifting.

    My rest bpm is 52 just for info..

    I've gotten elevated heart rates from tensing my back up too much on rows or leg exercises. I think I checked it at 120+. Nothing that serious I think just stressing body out on balance too much.
