Resting Pulse Rate
#21
Apparently according to my GP I get "white coat syndrome" which means when someone takes my pulse and/or blood pressure I get involuntarily anixious about the result and therfore the RHR and BP readings are higher than the should be  :o
At one time when tested my BP was on the boarder of needing medication to bring it down and once started you have to stay on that medication for life  Sad so I had to wear a little machine for 24 hrs that constantly monitored my HR and tested my BP every hour which was fine during the day but a pain at night! The results were much lower than when originally tested and the "white coat syndrome" diagnosed. I think my RHB is about 60  Undecided (but I am an old man  :B)

Just in case you need mouth to mouth on Wed's night, cos now you're not a gal I'll need to pack some long & short straws Big Grin

Sorry Jay for not replying, not getting any notifications from this site for some strange reason......

I was originally 18stone 2lbs and had 'borderline' high blood pressure, i was told if it didn't come down soon i would need tablets and didn't want that, if you look at the picture on my website of me on the summit of Ben Nevis you should be able to see me at my heaviest, that wasn't padding under that jacket! :B

So i bought a road bike last November and started riding, but only started proper training in around April this year and ride every morning for 65 minutes through Birling, Ryarsh, Trottiscliffe, Vigo Hill and Wrotham Water, nice climbing to be had in those areas and i managed to get down to 14st 12 lbs just before i went on holiday on 16th July, however my diet was clean clean clean with 1500 calories max per day, however i float around the 15.5 stone mark now as not counting calories at the moment.

My blood pressure is now around 117/77 down from 145-155/95 and i feel a lot more comfortable now i've lost some weight, as it was becoming a task just to put my socks on in the mornings.... :B

However, when i was in my twenties i was allways superfit, i couldn't put on weight, i was allways 12.5stone, and yes RedWinnie, that is me doing the full box splits over the chairs without the requirement for photoshop....i took Silver in the English Open WTF Full Contact Taekwondo championships around that same time, was training training and training....

Big Grin Funny, the one thing that people always ask when they find out you are heavily into Martial Arts is 'have you ever had to use it'.......i find this question so embarassing, because believe it or not, i couldn't be any further from a fighter than i am, i love competition fighting when there is a medal at the end of it, and also love the challenge of perfecting new techniques and getting the opportunity of using them to their full on somebody, but as for trouble on the street, for one a martial art like that wouldn't be effective anyway, and for two i really couldn't be arsed and would rather just loose face and walk away, for me it is no different to cycling, it is an art and something i just enjoy.

To keep the OT theme going... last year in July I was 14st 1lb... and that wasn't my heaviest... now I'm at 12st 4lb almost exclusively through cycling, both on and off road. I don't like diets or blieve in them really, so the more I eat, the more I ride.... or get fat... Simples.

Thanks for the info Soni, well done for getting out every day man! Quite interesting what you said about happily avoiding street fights too.

I think if you've been really fit as an adult, you know what you're capable of, and it's easier to get fit again as an older adult.

I NEVER considered a diet before, always ate what I wanted & never put on weight, until I hit mid 30's, then something changed & I got chubby :B

Long story Short; I started weight watchers with Cheryl about 6 weeks ago. I was 14st 2, & wanted to be about 12st 7 though.
I know, I could've just ridden more & eaten less, but my wife wants to lose like 3-4st, so I'm supporting her and eating healthier too!

Anyhoo, as of last thursday (weigh in) I was 12st 13 !!
Lost over a stone steadily in 6 weeks, feel much better, climbing a lot easier, and still feeling healthy on fewer calories.

At 6ft I should be between 11.5 & 13st, so I'm still at the upper end of my 'best' weight, but feel really decent atm.
Anyhoo, just continuing the minor off-topic glitch Smile

My resting HR is still just 52bpm, by the way (how's that for a seemless link 8))

Hi mate, that heart rate is very good to, that weight loss is super within that short period, and by the sounds of things you found it really easy, how much exercise were you doing?

I wouldn't say you've got anything to loose from what i saw of you the other night!

P.S.  Only just replied as didn't receive a reply notification.....
