  • My resting is generally 55-60 but I can get it up above 150 when I do an intensive cardio workout.

    mine is 4 and rises to about 8 when I exercise.
    I also only breath twice a minute.

    I have to lie in the sun to get going

    Bummer in winter.

    Do I win?

    Do you have eyelids? If not you'll probably win the 'not blinking' thingy too!

    It might look like I'm listening to you, but in my head I'm playing my guitar.

    We could have a potential triathlete!

    @snap how long can you go without blinking? 20 minutes is the current tFB record...

    80.

    But the act of taking my own pulse really gets me anxious, I want to do well in tests and stuff
    All practice and no theory

    @Fretmeister - you want to get that sorted mate.  89 resting is your body telling you to get fitter.

    Mines 60 - and hardly ever budges from that (heart tablets see to that).
    @Emp_Fab ;

    I am aware of this - a month ago it was over 100.

    I'm working on it - I did a treadmill stress test and although (thankfully) there is no sign of angina I was informed that I was "appallingly atrociously unfit"

    30 to 40 minutes brisk walking per day since with a far better diet and I've lost a stone. I want to shift another 26 lb.

    Funnily enough I'm sleeping much better already.

    Well done! That's a tremendous improvement. Keep up the good work!

    You can have a low/normal here rate and scary blood pressure.

    Speaking as someone who lost most of the sight in one eye due to untreated (un known) high blood pressure I'd recommend all us middle-aged or older blokes to get it checked.

    Ironically my sight loss probably saved my life (by triggering health checks which found my BP at 220-something over 140-something)

    fretmeister - buy a kettlebell - best most compact cardio workout there is - easy to do at home

    I did and I lost about 25lb (and put it all back on again)

    It was a useful kickstart, but I found that the deciding factor was sleep - if I got a crap night's sleep either before or after the fast day then I was so tired I was useless for anything. As I often have to work very late it wasn't working for me.

    The new way seems better so far!

    I'll have a look at that, thanks.

    Diets don't work, but lifestyle changes do. there's no point doing something drastically different like the Atkins, or the 5:2, or (insert any diet) if it doesn't become your new permanent lifestyle. You will just put the weight back on. That's not an opinion, there's a ton of evidence to show this.

    For most people, the route to losing weight and getting fit is removing the parts of your lifestyle that stop this happening. Usually for us blokes it is too much alcohol, carbs/fat and not enough movement.

    I guess if you dont permanently alter that balance, nothing will really happen.

    I am discovering that!

    I'm trying to get addicted to my daily walks.

    I live in a small village where if I turn left out my front door and take every left turn round the block without crossing a road I get back to my house in almost exactly a third of a mile. So I just stick the iPod on and get on with it and do between 6 and 8 laps

    I hate the first 2 laps and then all of a sudden it feels great.

    The stress test guys recommended that I do this for 6 to 8 weeks before I increase the intensity as going from "appallingly atrociously unfit" to any type of jogging or other cardio would be an unwise shock.

    I've always been heavy even when lean, and previous attempts at running (when overweight) have usually ended up with knee pain.

    So I'm thinking of getting an exercise bike too as that should allow me to up the heart rate / intensity without getting injuries that stop me training.

    Just had an ECG after feeling faint over the last 2 days, mine was 38 after walking down a corridor to the monitoring room.  I’m only posting this because I want the forum record.

    I think I'm right in saying Bjorn Borg had one of the lowest RHR of all time.
    35bpm!
    Miguel Indurain was measured at a pre-Tour de France medical check at 28 bpm. Over two seconds between beats!

  • All this talk of Tour de France has reminded me of a joke.

    I think it's disgusting how people treated Lance Armstrong after what he achieved winning 7 Tour De France titles on drugs.

    When I was on drugs, I couldn't even find my bike.
