Good heart rate

Heart rate is (HR) is a predictor of major cardiovascular events in both the general population and patients with various cardiovascular diseases. The total number of heart beats in a lifetime remain fairly constant across species and there exists an inverse relationship between resting heart rate and life expectancy.

When resting, the adult human heart beats at about 70 bpm (males) and 75 bpm (females), but this rate varies among people. The heart rate increases when the persons are active or when he feels strong emotions.

It will be higher when he walk compared to when he sit and rest. This is because the body needs more energy when they are active and so the heart has to work harder.

The heart is first and foremost a pump. It pumps oxygenated blood to the body to support the production of cellular energy. During exercise, working muscles increase their cellular energy requirements up to 100X. Generating more energy (ATP) requires more oxygen delivery to the mitochondria.

They should all aim to do at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise every week. Moderate intensity means that they should feel warm and slightly breathless, but still able to hold a conversation. Aerobic exercise, such as cycling and dancing, is best as it helps improve the fitness of theheart and circulation and helps develop stamina.

Traditionally, HR is measured by pulse palpation. The pulse rate is measured by counting beats over a set period of time (preferably 30 seconds) and multiplying that number by 2 to get the number of beats per minute. The pulse rate can be measured at any point on the body where an artery is close to the surface, including most commonly the radial, carotid, brachial, and femoral artery.
