What is your heart rate supposed to be when moving around during the day?
I'm curious if anyone knows what your heart rate should be while walking around the house? I know resting is between 60-100 bpm. I think sometimes when I am walking around cleaning, etc it goes slightly over 100.
Generally at rest the heart should be or expected to be 60 to 100 bpm as you stated. Moving around and some activity would require the heart to work a little harder to supply additional blood/oxygen demand so the heart beats faster. How much faster depends on one's physical conditioning and degree of activity. How quickly the heart rate returns to normal after the activity and at rest is also dependant on one's conditioning.
Hope this provides a perspective and answers your question. Thanks for your question and if you have any further questions you are welcome to respond. Take care.
