Anything over 100 beats per minute up to 150 beats per minute is considered Sinus Tachycardia
. If you are at rest, a heart rate
that high is abnormal and should be checked out. If you are exercising and you are a healthy adult, 130 beats per minute is a normal and expected response to the activity. Other things that can make your heart speed up over 100 beats per minute include stimulants like caffeine or cocaine, anxiety
, pain, and cardiac disease. Again, if you find your heart is beating greater than 100 bpm at rest, see a doctor.
