    The average is around 70bpm. A very fit athlete would usually be in the 40's and a fit person in the 50's. Some athletes are in the 30's but it's few and far between. That said, a person with a RHR of 40 doesn't neccesarily mean he's fitter than a person of a RHR of 50 as we are all different.

    My resting heart-rate is 48 at the moment, I had it down to 42bpm at the end of my rowing season, that said, I hear bigger people have lower heart-rates naturally? Could just be me anyway! I still think I can do a massive more amount of damage to that figure, I reckon I could get mid-low-30's at my physical peak in years to come.

    Sorry to hijack this thread but........

    I've just started with E&C (Not A), and on the first day (yesterday) found my resting HR well over 100 (upto 120 at times!). Normally it would be about 60-65.

    I know that the Ephra will do this, but this much?

    Should I be seriously worried?

    Gotta love the drug takers who don't research what effects the things they're putting inside them have!

    A bit unfair that mate.

    I'm new to this board but not to training, and not that new to supplements either.

    I have done a lot of research on the ECA stack (not least on the boards in MT). Yes I know what Ephra is, and what it does....and how it is supposed to work. As I'm aware of that I've started on what I consider to be a fairly low dose (20mg).....but have never actually come across any specifics with regard ACTUAL HR figures......hence the question.

    Now I may be being a to**er here, and indeed there are loads of resources, if so apologies for upsetting you, I've clearly missed them.

    Perhaps I've missed the point of this community, but I find my question a fair, and very specific one (though admittedly perhaps on the wrong board), and don't feel it's worthy of such a patronising and totally none-helpful reply.

    Rant over.

    Medically speaking, the adverage range for heart rate is 60-100. Above 100 is tachycardia, below 60 is bradycardia. Well trained athletes are known to have significantly lower heart rates. The lowest I've seen was about 30 beats a minute, he ran marathons. He was all heart lungs and legs. Blood pressure should be between 90/60 to 140/90 mmHg.

    When did you measure your heart-rate? Morning or evening? Had you done any intense exercise close to when you measured your heart-rate?

    It was late last night......and I think the problem was I'd just had a rather heated conversation. The only reason I checked my HR is because I could ifeel the pulsing in my chest and neck.

    Now I know this happen ordinarilly to anyone when agitated, but (as is a side to ephra) I did get rather 'paranoid' about it, and am a bit worried because (although having done my research) it's the first time I've experimented with this stack.

    I've checked my HR at reg intervals today, and it's been about 10-15 bpm higher than normal, so....would you say this was OK? I know that mwtabilism increases by about 3-5% and so assumed the HR would be about the same increase......fair assumption?

    Cheers, Boo

    10-15bpm sounds about right, not really a big increase is it?

    Well I don't really know about the effects of ECA on heart rate, but personally I wouldn't be concerned with 10-15bpm, although I would be if it was over 100 like you said earlier!
