Heart rate measures how many times your heart beats in one minutes. But how much should a normal healthy person have?
Range for healthy heart rate
If you had gone through our “How healthy are you? Do a quick test” before, you know that we only measure heart rate when we sit down calmly. There are varying normal heart beat rate range for different age.
But the rule of thumb here is, 60 to 100 heart beat rate for children over ten years old and adults.
How about when we are exercising?
This one need some simple calculations for you.
The maximum heart rate during exercise is in the range between 50% and 85% of 220 minus age.
I have very different heart beat from the range, what should I do?
Here, like always, we recommend you to see the healthcare professionals, and don’t look for solutions online unless it is from credible sources with medical doctor or professional as author. Be careful with the healthcare information online, there are many many anecdotal “medical knowledge”, they might be false!
We strongly encourage you to take medical checkup regularly, there are many cases of diseases that can be solved earlier which turns out to be life-threatening because people don’t care about the check-ups. We hope knowledge here helps you!
