I'm 6 feet tall, 147 lbs and 22 y/o. I've had my heart rate checked twice in the past week and both times came back 40bpm exactly. What should my bpm be topping out at for high intensity cardio?

2 questions

56, used to be around 48

Funny story: I'm a medical student and one day we were learning how to use a pulse oxometer(tells you your pulse plus your oxygen saturation). I had it hooked up to myself and it was going around 50. This cute girl walks up behind me and says, "I know what'll work" and ran her hands on my chest. Went up to about 75.

Miguel Indurain the cyclist had his down to 29, and I knew someone crazy fit with 28 bpm

Opposite story: I was at 44 at a First Aid course and the instructor was convinced my partner didn't know what he was doing.

depends on your maximum heart rate. have you done a maximal stress test? once you get yr MHR, you can use the karvonen method to determine exercise intensity levels.

Idk what my MHR is tbh. I get to 165-170 most days and can maybe get 5-10 more. Idk, what is normal for my stats?

205.8 − (0.685 × age) is the best formula but nothing can replace an actual stress test. if yr doing 30+ min of continuous aerobic exercise, try keeping yr HR at 80-85% intensity as given by karvonen method: ((MHR-RHR) x Percent level) + RHR

Same story. Back in my rowing days I had to be taken to the ER for a fun bout of dehydration+food poisoning. HR came in at 36 and they were convinced I was doping or on beta blockers.
