Some have stated that one good guide to your cardiovascular health is your heart recovery rate after intense exercise. So, here is a poll.

Please answer twice. In one minute immediately after intense exercise, how much does you heart rate decrease? Two minutes?

I was doing intense exercise going up hills today. My HR got to 150 - which may be low by your standards, but since I am on Diovan and 71yo, that seems to be about it.

I was interested that in 1 miunte, I dropped about 40 bpm and 2 minutes I dropped about 60 bpm.

So, I decided to do a poll and see how others are doing.

How about you?

Looked at a recent structured workout, where I was doing a 20 minute threshold, then transitioned to easy recovery pedaling:

Max: 168
1 min: 143
2 min: 122

My MHR is about 185. I suspect that, had I been closer to max, I still would have been down to about the same range in the same amount of time, and it would be lower if I had stopped completely rather than just backing off to active recovery power.

Last year it was somewhere near 44 after 1 minute- spectacular. Then it went down to 27-33. Still "very healthy", but I wonder what happened....

From today's spinning class, 1 minute 27 beats, didn't get the second minute. Interestingly, if I check after a run, I get aa 1 minute drop in the mid to high thirties.

Using Power Agent software and a Power Tap, I isolated my HR from a Z5 interval done a couple weeks ago. At the end of a 10' interval @ 317 watts ave my HR was 162.8 My recovery was an easy spin averaging 12 mph and at 1' into recovery the HR was 139.7 bpm and at 2' the HR was 127.4 bpm.

How about you?
From drugs.com, FDA information on Diovan (valsartan) : There was essentially no change in heart rate in valsartan-treated patients in controlled trials.
