What's your highest recorded heart rate?DWridesGT

Just for fun.......... kinda like the "Max Speed" thread yesterday. What is the highest BMP you pushed your ticker too. Be Honest. I once reached 201 bpm at age 25 but now can only hit 191 bpm at age 32.
I still hit 200, and I'm 32. nmFunkyMonkey

No, it wasn't a glitch in the HR monitor, but during a sprint up a bridge and it stayed above 210 for about 15 seconds. Needless to say, it took about 15 minutes to recover enough to ride at a descent pace! I should be dead with a HR this high at 38, but remember I'm only 135 lbs. I've seen HR's above 210 many times over the years, and with different monitors. I only wish it was something useful that could aid my cycling. Instead, it's a big red flag that is followed by some very slow riding.

The highest ever was 228 about 10 years ago during a long track sprint. I don't know if it was a glitch since I couldn't look that long due to the extreme breathing and pain! I'm glad I kept my cycling journal from back then. The riding days of the past make for interesting reading when looked back upon.
193 bpm, age 29. Resting about 49. nmBruno

185. 43 y/o. LOWEST? EMT's got me at aboutbill
Jan 22, 2002 8:20 AM
46 right before they took me to the hospital after I lost a fight with Percodan just after my hernia op a couple of weeks ago. 46 is about 10 bpm's below my lowest recorded just out of bed resting rate withOUT narcotics.
Oh, and, BTW, the highest was on supposedly-difficult-to-bill

203, chasing Lance Armstrong and Miguel Indurain. Really.Greg Taylor
Jan 22, 2002 8:49 AM
I did the 2000 edition of the Ride for the Roses as part of the "Peloton Project." One of the perks was a "celebrity ride" with Lance and Miguel Indurain over a rolling 25 mile course. Anyway, we were pulling out of the parking lot when a young woman who was part of the group suffered a mechanical.... I figured that the ride was going to be an easy roll, so I stopped to help her (who says chivalry is dead!). Got her bike fixed after about 3-4 minutes, and then proceeded to chase.

Did I mention that it was windy? Yes, it was windy. I was also slightly hungover, and it was cold.

Anyway, I went into time-trial mode to catch the group, which I discovered was rolling along at a fair clip. I whupped myself silly, and saw 203 on the heartrate monitor. Then I saw God. Mercifully, I didn't see breakfast again. Ouch, that hurt.

Anyway, I caught the group at about 12 miles. Stuffing my lungs back into my chest, I recovered and started to enjoy the ride. I wanted to get a picture of Lance and Miguel, so I pulled my camera out of my pocket...and then dropped the damn thing. Off the back again...chasing up hill and into the wind. Saw over 200 BPM that time...

193 at a recent stress test. 34 years old, male.
Only 174, age 26, weigh 195, excellent conditionashleyrenfroe
Jan 22, 2002 11:08 AM
I have no known heart condition, nothing to keep me from being my best except a few extra pounds around the middle. But the highest I have ever seen is 174. My resting HR, which to me is more important, is 47.
Hit 219 in a TT - can reach 202 consistently. 26 y-o guy.jw25
Jan 22, 2002 11:42 AM
I was alone for most of the TT, and parallel a set of powerlines for about half the course, but I've ridden it many times without getting weird readings, so I can't prove it was wrong.
During road races, and hard training, I can hit 202 bpm consistently, but it's painful, so I use 202 as my max.
My resting HR is around 60, but that's true resting - once I'm up for the day, it's more like 70-80.

dehydration and hospitalizationwspokes
Jan 23, 2002 4:34 AM
I dehydrated in a race in 97, I kept racing and was delirious, dizzy, and very sick. I saw 225-235 on my monitor and when complete, 237max. I finished (85miles, 90 degree weather) and drove home skipping the next days final crit...I checked into the local hospital for dehydration, my electrolytes were so out of whack I had uncontrolled atrial fib, and a slew of other related problems. Drink, drink, and drink...even if you do drink...if you feel real bad..STOP. if you see these numbers. STOP. I dropped my USCF status that year and have rode for the fun of it ever since!
