How do you determine what the ideal/healthy resting heart rate is?I know how to figure out max but not resting.
I am not sure. I just go with a range of 60 to 80. And closer to 60, if you’re in shape. Sleep should dip down, like maybe 10% but not too low. And no missed beats. I think if you recover quickly for a little walk, and return to a lower retaking pulse, obviously the better. Since I broke my leg, I have a hard time getting fast enough to really do cardio.
OH So I am not doing so badly then. Resting is normally 63-67 and although my heart rate goes up quickly when I am climbing a steep hill or lots of stairs while hiking - it comes right back down pretty quickly.
I would love to hear from you!
