So I just got back from the gym. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical, after 25 minutes i was sweating like a little pig and my heart rate was 180.. i know that is really high and I was wondering what could cause it to do that?!!!
The younger you are, the higher your heart rate will be too. But like these other ladies said, even women the same age will have different heart rates. Mine stays around 160 during most of my workout then gets to around 180 when I'm really going hard.
