if you work out, you can eventually lower your resting heart rate after your body has become healthy. Your blood vessels and arteries and such get clogged, no matter how old you are. The heart needs to pump faster to overcome the friction forces caused by hardened blood vessels.
Your overall goal should be to start working out about everyday and get to a healthy weight if you are not already there. Eventually your resting heart rate will lower, but it wont happen overnight! And it will never happen if you eat crap foods!
I am 37 and have alot of anxiety problems. My resting heart rate is 85-100 bpm. I stopped working out about a year and a half ago and just started again 4 days ago. I did just have a stress test, ekg, and echo and all normal. How long should it take for my resting heart rate to lower itself naturally with working out everyday? I don t want to take the beta blocker.
Hi,I ve been weight training and wearing a heart rate monitor (made by Polar). I rest about 90seconds in between sets and perform about 8-12 reps. It says my average heart rate is 127 for an hour work-out. My max was apparently 208. I didn t feel dizzy or exhausted or anything like that. I actually felt fine. I am 28 years old and I smoke.
