Recovery Pulse vs Resting Pulse Rate

Posted on May 1, 2013

From Dr. Gabe Mirkin’s Fitness and Health E-Zine April 28, 2013 High Resting Heart Rate Increases Death Risk in Healthy People The Copenhagen Male Study followed the health of 3000 men for 16 years and found that the higher the resting heart rate, the more likely that person is to die (Heart, Apr 17, 2013). Those who had lower resting heart rates and did not exercise still lived longer than those who had higher resting heart rates, even if they exercised. The authors conclude: “This suggests that a high resting heart rate is not a mere marker of poor physical fitness, it is an independent risk factor for premature death.” The authors adjusted results for heart attack risk factors such as smoking, obesity and physical fitness. Compared to a resting heart rate of 50 beats per minute, a resting heart rate of • 71 to 80 beats/min was associated with a 50 percent increased risk of death during the study period, • 81 to 90 beats/min was associated with a 100 percent increased risk, and • over 90 beats/min...
