HIIT for Beginners: 7 Tips to Jump-Start Your Workouts
HIIT can be intimidating for beginners, but it doesn't have to be! Here's how you can get started with high-intensity interval training.
The Recovery Heart Rate Time After Cardio Exercise
Your heart�s ability to return to normal levels after physical activity is a good indicator of fitness. A healthy heart will recover quickly in the first three minutes after stopping exercise.
Negative Feedback Exercise & Heart Rates
Whether you are at rest or exercising, physiological functions must remain within a narrow range for you to survive. Negative feedback loops work to keep physiological parameters such as heart rate within this target range, or homeostatic set point.
How to Lower the Heart Rate While Running
Running is generally defined at a pace of at least 10 minutes per mile. Anything slower is defined as jogging. Runners who race can determine their maximum heart rate by taking 220 and subtracting their age. Generally racers calculate a percentage of this maximum heart rate to plan their workouts.
Foot Numbness While Running
As a runner, you expect the occasional aches and pains like muscle soreness and blisters. But a foot that goes numb when you�re running is a strange sensation. You are undoubtedly used to the feeling of your foot �falling asleep� when you sit cross-legged on the floor too long.
