Is this a normal walking heart rate?
« on: April 23, 2012, 04:41:24 PM »
 My heart rate gets up to 115-120 bpm just walking around.  Climbing the stairs it gets to 150 bpm. Does this sound normal? I exercise everyday and I was thinking it should be lower.. *sigh*.

Are you out of breath when just walking or climbing one flight of stairs? It also depends on what type of exercising you do, lifting weights doesn't count as cardio. A good measure is what your resting heart rate is, it should be lower the more efficient your heart becomes.

 I do stationary bike.  But is that a normal walking heart rate "120"? I know my max heart rate is 220-my age 23 so 197.  When I workout on the exercise bike I can get it to 165 on high intensity and even higher if I wanted.  What im more concerned about is the walking heart rate.

 I do feel a bit out of breath climbing 3 flights of stairs but not like gasping for air or anything.  It is 150 after 3 flights o f stairs

 Resting is 75-90 it really varies quit significantly.  At the moment it is 76.

I personally think your fine. I'm relatively conditioned so I'll try the treadmill if my recent knee injury isn't feeling that bad, and see what my heart rate is, I can comfortably run/jog for about 45 minutes. I never really check my heart rate because the machine chastises me for doing so while running but I know it's reached around 160 at max running speed although that was a few years ago, resting is 50-high 60's, although it did reach around 70 recently but I wasn't really rested. I'll try it tonight if it makes you feel any better.

I think you need to see your Dr or cardiologist to tell you what is normal or okay! We are not cardiologists .. However, my HR is all over the place BUT I have pots and anxiety! But my HR walking around is usually between 80 and 120.

I don't know the answer to this question and my hr drives me nuts too :dazed:  I do know that if you search this site for "normal heart rate"  you will probably find the answer or at least something that will make you feel better.  Thats what I do when something is really bothering me.

Sorry, I edited my post after I read yours again. Just back, resting HR at this exact moment is 73. Anyways.....

I was walking for about 5 minutes just to check it out, it sad my heart rate was around 120. I checked myself, counted for 15s x 4, it was 96. I started jogging [9min/mile pace], 30 minutes into it the HR monitor reached 180, I let go of the metal sensors, it reached 210 without my hands on it. I had trouble checking my heart rate manually while jogging/running.

Ask your PCP to refer you to a cardiologist if it makes you feel better, s/he'll probably do what mine did, as me why I was there since everything's normal, but hey maybe not. Best of luck!
