falling heart rate after exercise

I read somewhere years ago that the rate at which your heart recovers from the stress of exercise is a good indiction of one's fitness.

I have been scouring the web looking for a chart or some guidelines like this but have not found much.

What I have found is that you should have a drop of at least 12 beats per minute in the first minute after stopping your peak level work.

Does anyone have any information regarding this?

Cheers! Ian.

Re: falling heart rate after exercise

Yep thats true... I cant remember exactly how it works but thevfaster it drops the better your condition.

You could also do a cooper test which is flooring yourself for 12 minutes running... the length you reach in relation says something about your condition as well.

Re: falling heart rate after exercise

Found your answer.... the test will roughly estimate your body age as compared to physical age.

Do an exercise that puts your heartrate to around 150-160.
Maintain in for some time. Then when you stop take two minutes with walking or relaxing.
Meassure the heart rate again. Subtract the two minute rate from your peak rate.
That number says something about body age.
I recall 25-55 being "normal", lower older age and higher younger age.
