What is a normal non resting heart rate?

Have you ever felt your heart racing and wondered if it was beating too fast? Or, on the other hand, have you felt like your heart was barely pumping and thought something might be wrong with it? Understanding what is considered a normal non resting heart rate can put these concerns to rest.

Here’s all you need to know about your ticker:

The Basics

First of all, let’s get some terminology out of the way. Your heart rate is simply how many times per minute (bpm) your heart beats. A resting heart rate is taken when you’re at complete rest and not doing anything that could influence it (like drinking coffee or running from zombies). For most adults, anywhere between 60 to 100 bpm falls under this category.

But what about when you’re moving around?

Non-Resting Activities

When we start moving more, our bodies require extra oxygen which means our hearts have to work harder. So naturally, our heart rates increase. However, everyone’s maximum healthy range varies greatly based on factors such as age, gender (yup! even chests come into play), weight level %%, medical history%% person-to-person differences in fitness levels %%and caffeine consumption%% (you knew Starbucks was bad for you!). An athlete may have a lower resting heart rate than an average individual due to their heightened physical conditioning while pregnant women usually experience an elevated one.

So without getting ahead of ourselves here are the answers:

How Much Is Too Much / Not Enough?

Doctors measure exercise intensity relative to sub-ranges:
– Light: Less than 50% intensity
– Moderate: Between 50%-70% intensity
– Vigorous : Over 70%

Accordingly:
If during modest activity ($$50\%$$ – $$69\%$$ max):More than $$140\/BPM$$ Is too much
If during any sustained activity (less than $$50\%$$ max) : Less than $$100\/BPM$$ is unusual

Activity Based Heart Rates

Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind when monitoring your heart rate based on the activity you are participating in:

Sleeping

Sleeping has the lowest HR amongst most activities. A range of 40 to 60 bpm is a healthy zone I.e Resting.

Sitting Down and Relaxation

This category ranges from reading, writing , meditating or watching TV. During this type of leisurely pastime/non-vigorous activity an individual’s heart may even decrease to as low as 43 BPM.

### Walking

Whether it’s a stroll through the park or brisk walking it generally falls between moderate-vigorous activities making its common rating vary between 110-135 BPM.

Running/Jogging

This intensity May Include Its Own Sub-ranges:
Short distance running/Sprinting(30 s Prints): Vigorous+ running which results waking up for days with sore limbs may get you upto an unhealthy $$$240\/BPM$$$$$
Middle Distance runs: Also classified as high-intensity workouts, these would be around $$70\%-85\%$$ above maximum and can obtain approx.$190-200$ Hr/Bpm

Row One Heading


Type Of Workout Range of Typical HR/BPMs Other Notes
Running <10 min miles/$$8km/hour$$ Most intense aerobic
exerecise Set Your Feet Free! Barefoot Running might lead to faster pace but slower healing time
Row Two Heading

As we move into Moderate-Vigorous activities, The heart rates climb even higher.

Aerobics/ Dance

Bringing out your inner Beyoncé or Bruno Mars requires moves! It easily falls under the Vigourous category and could lead to a Heart rate of $$$160+$$$ !!

Sports

As you would expect then comes the sports zone.Boxing , Soccer, basketball – all these high-energy sports play varying degrees at Healthy HR levels between $$160-190$$ beats per minute on average.

Conclusion

Monitoring and understanding normal non-resting heart rate does not need to be stressful or complicated. Keep in mind that context (like caffeine) as well as individual factors such as age and weight can influence it but regardless of those external factors consistent exercise helps maintain cardiovascular health. So get up from that couch and dance like nobody’s watching(beats per minute might just motivate you).
