    vital stats

    I find this quite interesting. So I weigh about 305, 44 years young, get some physical activity, albeit not as much as I would like, but here are my vital stats over the last three days. I take these in the morning after my shower. I sit for about 2 minutes before taking BP and RHR. I am kind of amazed that my RHR is so low and I am by no means in good aerobic shape.
    BP RHR
    132/72 61
    123/74 60
    122/68 59

    Those aren't bad, especially given your weight. How tall are you?

    Once you've ridden for a while, your RHR will go way down. I just measured mine and it's 60, but I'm sitting at my desk at lunchtime, having had 4 cups of coffee this morning

    I have no idea about day to day blood pressure, last I was checked about 4 months ago it was 120/78. I do know that when I put my HR monitor onfor riding it's usually around 88 when I start. Todays ride my average was 158 with a high of 190bpm over the course of a 3 hour ride. For what it worth I'm 6'1" 220lbs 38 years old.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Well, according to the chart at http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/medi...d-pressure.htm, you're in the "high normal" range. In other words, it could be better, but you're probably not going to keel over tomorrow.

    That's pretty good stats. Your BP's are a little on the high side according to the latest standards but all in all not bad!!
