My resting heartrate has come down from 74 beats per minute to 61 beats per minute. What is your resting heartrate? If it is high...get moving! Post your heartrates here for motivation.

Awesome well done :)
27 Jul
Awesome for u too ^^. 61 it's near the same heartbeat

Mine is 53... is that a healthy heart rate?
27 Jul
Yes that is very low. Normal is between 60-100 just make sure it is low because are exceptionally healthy and not because you are depriving your body.

Hi :)
What does the resting heart rate signify?

27 Jul
It's about the condition your heart is in. Just like when you've done a cardio training and then it should be back at it's normal beat in a short time. Then it's healthy ;)

So...to lower your resting rate you have to increase the duration of the cardio workout of the intensity?
27 Jul
Increase the duration or the intensity? *
27 Jul
It can be either. As long as your body is being pushed you will be improving it :)

Mhmm...just timed it. Mines 78. Been doing HIIT for a few weeks now. Definitely noticed an improvement in recovery rate. Will try to push further for a lower resting rate. Thank you guys :)
