I’m not 100% sure because our home heart rate finger tester thingy usually shows higher than testing at hospital or clinic, but I’m gonna go with the more professional tests and say 91 to 100. I have a high heart rate.

That’s what my resting BPM was before my doctor put me on my beta blocker. Keep an eye on it, if it consistantly goes above 100, go get checked out.

@LittleMissSlothy - Its not very hard to find out. Put 2 fingers on your artery in your neck and count how many thumps you get in 10 seconds, then multiply by 6.

@Stillwaters @Three - You guys must be in great shape to have a BPM under 60. Very impressive!

I had a friend in university who was also an athlete, his heart rate is like 40. Athletes have a lower heart rate due to a more effecient and muscular heart. Afaik the more you’re overweight the higher the heart rate, also exercising regluarly decreases resting heart rate.

I have a low resting HR due to beta blockers I’m on for POTS. My resting HR is around 56 but typically jumps to around 130-140 walking.

POTS is postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. Basically it effects your autonomic nervous system, I have poor blood circulation resulting in blood pooling in my legs and ankles, and poor blood flow to my brain while standing due to the blood pooling. This in turn makes my heart rate super fast when standing because my body is trying to get enough blood pumped to my brain. Ok bad days I pass out from it.

@Hanna_Foxx - I’m sorry you have to deal with that. I hope your symptoms improve.

I’m on a beta blocker also (Bisprolol)
