    Exercise and heart rate...

    Hi people

    Just out of interest, what are people excerise habits and normal resting heart rate on these boards?

    My resting heart rate is around 55 beats per minute, done by - what you record over 15 seconds and then multiply by 4.

    Exercise wise, i do around 5 - 6 hours worth of exercise per week. Which is broken down as 4 1 hour sessions in a swimming pool and then 1 or 2 hours in a gym per week. For the swimming, a normal training session will be about 2 - 3km, and gym work will normally be aerobic exercise on running machines and rowers followed by weight work.

    Just out of interest, what do u do for fitness and whats your resting heart rate?

    60, but i just got back from running to the loo. when i wake up in the morning it can be as low as 40, and if i do real heavy exercise it can go up to 200... so pretty good. i dont do much proper exersize regularly at the moment - i walk to lots of places - probably average about 15-20 miles a week - longboard for an hour or 2 on top of that, and then at weekends i'll probably spend 5 or 6 hours on one of the weekend days either surfing or mountain biking.. sounds like quite a bit but i used to do a lot more..

    i think heart rate depends alot on age and weight and stuff as well.. my blood pressure should by all accounts be quite low thou (im 21, have a very toned body, do a reasonable amount of exercise and dont smoke/arnt stressy), but is stupidly high - 140/100 is about average for me.. im gonna die young..

    Exercise? Oh yeah, I stand up and sit down quite a bit... Walking to the bus stop? Can typing be classed as exercise as I do hours and hours of that!

    When I went down the gym once, I was told I had a very good resting thing where your heart slows down from 150+ bpm to your natural state (mine being about 60 something). She said mine was very fast and very good, I told her nah I'm having a heart attack!

    my resting is about 42. i row so its vairly cardio-vascular intensive as well as muscular/strength related. i do lots of cycling too which comes under cardiovascular training.
    currently taking it easy because I have a bad back (probably has something to do with lifting 200kg...doing leg press (maximum is 315kg - considering i weigh only ~72kg it comes to 4.5 times my own weight!).
    training is usually one water session a day plus weights or on the rowing machine or two water sessions a day for weekends...

    I had a chest xray done recently which was quite interesting - the average person's heart is the size of their fist when balled up. mine on the other hand was the size of my fist PLUS the other hand wrapped round it!! so, quite big is what it is.
    Had my lungs tested too - functional volume is somewhere in the region of 8litres, 7.5 litres...that was measured in a 'body-box' if any of you know what that is. average lung size is about 5-6litres for a man of around 6feet, lung size is dependant on height and body size.
    if anyone is interested I could waffle on lots more about effects of training, heart rates and respiratory rates cause that was a huge chunk of my Master's course...its not just one thing that changes but loads of things that adapt to training, from the muscles in the body right down to the sub-cellular bits and pieces that do all the metabolising...

    ...anyone want a good way to lose fat?
