It is normal for BP to be low after endurance exercise and, as a rule, if you feel okay and can stand up after sitting for a while without getting severely lightheaded, you’re alright. However,...

My wife bought me a team jersey based on its color, that safety yellow lime color. I have noticed it actually makes a difference in other traffic behavior. They actually see me for a change. I kind...

Don't forget that the aerobic system is a system, the heart being just one component.

That's why "max heart rate" is different for different activities, as they each use different muscles.

That was me 2 years ago and I remember hitting 143 HR and truly fearing I was going to explode and die a la Spegler -> Now 143 is low tempo I can do all day, threshold is 164, and "max" is 181.

VO2 max is like W/kg ie you can increase your VO2 max by increasing your power and/or reducing your weight.

I've heard it explained this way:

power increases with size, but not as quickly as body mass, so power-to-weight ratio favors smaller riders

it's the butt, hands, shoulders, neck that suffer the most with me. My legs, lungs and heart are always capable of doubling my recent ride distance. As someone else said, elevation matters too.

You might want to consider buying a cheap pulse meter. Or maybe you can buy a Bluetooth chest belt that syncs with your phone.

Then, you could do a few outdoor rides to determine what your heart...

For statins it takes 100 people taking them over a 2.5 year period to have one fewer CV events - not one less death but one less event. Mortality does not change for those taking statins but it is a...

As others mentioned the 220 - age or other rules are just an average across the population. Individuals can vary widely. Additionally it isn't a measure of fitness. Even top pro racers can have high...

The 220-age thing has been debunked many times. HR is a very personal thing. If you are hitting 180-183, your max HR could be close to 190. My HR is similar to yours, a typical ride for me will have...
