Hi, I'm an 18 year old girl who weighs around 64kg, I'm quite tall (5ft 8.5) and I regularly exercise. Today i found out that my heart rate is around 80...

Should I be concerned about this? I would say that I'm quite fit, I mainly do workouts, so not much cardio...

I'm also quite lanky as well, and my BMI is average, so why is my heart rate so high! I have a 25 year old brother whos heart rate is 65! Is it because he does Rugby? Should I do more running?

(I don't smoke either)

Please help!

No, it should be between 50 and 90. https://sites.google.com/site/glasgo...ing-news-chart

Normal heart rates can range from 60-90 bpm so I don't think it's anything to worry about

Normal heart rate is actually 60 - 100bpm. You're fine.

The reason your brother's resting heart rate is lower is because he engages in cardiovascular training, and as such, has a more efficient cardiovascular system and body. His body can deliver more oxygen, and needs less oxygen to operate. Yours is more unhealthy than his.

If you want a lower resting heart rate, incorporate cardio into your workout regime. You really should be doing cardio anyway. Weight training without cardio is dumb - they go hand in hand.

Yeh doing 30-60mins of daily jogging/brisk walking/sports will work wonders
