Heart Rate Test

Heart Rate Test

Even if you have normal cholesterol levels, your risk for sudden heart attack increases dramatically if your resting pulse rate is over 75 OR if your heart rate recovery is below 25 beats per minute.

An interesting study came out a few years ago that I will never forget. You see, Even in peak shape, ur heart
rate can b above 75 bpm. This study showed that those with resting heart rates over 75 were 2-3 times more likely to die of heart disease.

Scary stuff.

Since then I make sure I keep my heart rate low through eze cardio (with my Heart Support Group), some intense bootcamp cardio and meditation/relaxation techniques.

EASY home test for you
Simply take your heart rate before you get out of bed in the morning.
Then, take your heart rate in the middle of the afternoon after sitting down for 15 minutes. Do this again at night.
Then average the three numbers together.

If they average out more than 75 then increase your exercise and consider yoga, meditation, or more stress-free time in your day as a solution.

Remember being stressed increases ur cholesterol and decreases ur ability to lose body fat!

So work to lower ur RHR
