What's your resting pulse rate?

Postby kb » Thu Feb 13, 2014 6:59 pm

Tried an experiment today. See how calmly I can ride home. Average HR 99 but only @18.4kph. That's over 17km and ~200m elevation.
[edit: Strava says 17kph]

Age:43
BPM:high 20s. Lowest recorded is 24.
Training: 25 hours per week on bike, 80% of which would be classified as "garbage miles" :lol:

My heart rate is low. I used to be super-hyper-morbidly obese and even then is was maybe 60. As my weight dropped, so did my heart rate until below 30. Doc was not sure if he should worry, but have no other paritcualr symptoms of anything being wrong. When I had a ekg it settled at 27 and that was the only non-conformance in my medical check over...

Another intersting point is my max is about 155. well as high as I have measured anyway. It would be good if it was more like 200 or even 180 - I'd likely have huge VO2 max if that was the case :)

Pam is 52 and 52kg, cycles twice weekly, fast walks 30-40ks a week, jogs 2x5k's per week and swims 2x1k per week and yet her heart rate at rest is 78-84 Is this high?Some quick sprints see her reach about 140bpm, it drops quickly afterwards though.
Just bought her a heart monitor to look at further, Pam is curious too.

End of thread. Antti wins :mrgreen:

I recorded a new record low of 36 BPM the other day (down from a previous 37). Just to prove it wasn't a temporary thing, I guess.

Interesting about your low MHR, Antti. I've always had a high MHR.

A decade ago (late 20s - early 30s) I had a basic HRM, and recorded max 200+ BPM on quite a few mountain bike rides. I watched it (through a blur of overexertion) once, recording a solid 210, then returning back to more sane levels as I recovered, without any tell-tale jumping around or other signs that it was a false reading.

These days, I'm a decade older and much fitter (about to turn 39), and I have a (crappy) recording HRM. I know it goes nuts occasionally, spiking and recording 220+ for a while, then spiking back down to where it should be, so I know to ignore anything spurious. The believable parts of my HRM traces top out at around 180 BPM, when I'm smashing myself but in a sustainable manner (I hovered between 165 and 180 for 20 minutes in a dirt crit this week, and didn't explode). So 180 is not an absolute maximum HR. Maybe I've become too lazy and/or sensible in my old age to really go for a MHR effort. Perceived effort and rule-of-thumb %MHR zones don't correlate unless I assume my MHR is somewhere upward of 195. Certainly somewhere well beyond the "220-age" estimate.

I guess I've just got a wide ratio gearbox on my heart.

Age: 50
BPM: min 35 recorded sleeping after full recovery, absolute max 214 with full carbo load(recorded 28/02/2014). Typ max 185-190 on regular grub.
Training: Whenever I get a chance, shift work & family commitment limit any possibility of regularity. Best guess average is maybe 3 hours per week made up of walking, jogging & cycling.

Anttismo, that is pretty low.

Considering the guiness book of records has 27 as the record.

Cool, seems the 27 is still the world record according to the guiness world record site. I measured it often at 26 or 27 when I awoke in the mronign when I used to track such things. The 24 I've measured is "unoffical" and I may have been derranged or drinking marijuana or something, but I do have the report from the medial with EKG that had it as 27. Seems I'm an equal world record holder :)

You should see if you could crack it and get your name in the book.

So here is as much proof as I can provide on the world record equalling status. Need to view images in strava file...

Being somewhat IT retarded, sharing a photo via instagram via strava seemed as simple as I could do :lol: Note, photos also answer that other great question - what is the world's coolest bike :)

That sounds like a typical Finnish heart, a no nonsense pump, only beats when it needs to. (Kyllä se on vähän liian hidas !!!! )

Olen hyvilään jos se ei pysähdy! Sorry, my finnish is a tad scratchy :)

Actually, I think hearts are only supposed to beat when they need to :)

Well I'm 62.

Right now, its 70, but I just sat down and I've just been out for a ride. It's typically 56-60 later in the evening, but not sleeping, or lying down.

I'm a "returning cyclist", never competed, only commuted or toured. I've been riding 170 Kays a week since Jan 1, after effectively, a couple of years off the bike.

I'm feeling "reasonably fit" again.
