maximum heart rate during game.
any of u measure your heart rate during game? ive been playing for bout 6yrs, i'd call myself an average player. im 30 now. i recently bought a polar heart rate monitor, tried it on during games. my resting heart rate is between 68 and 76. during doubles game it peaks at 180. in singles though it exceeds 200. ive since stopped using the monitor. mainly because for years, i feel like ive pushed myself harder than when i felt when the monitor exceeded 200. i am nevertheless worried, reason i bought the monitor was because ive heard of people collapsing in the middle of a game and dying as a result of heart attack.

at 180, it is not good.
superfit pro players are around 60-80.
try slow jog and swimming to be more fit. heart rate at 100-120 will be good for us.

200 is a bit high but then those heart rate monitors can b out at times and as long as its not at 200 for a long period of time! I was cycling up slight hill 1 day at medium pace but easy enough and my heart rate was 201 which i knew must of been a mistake! cause i went harder higher up the hill and it was at 185/190

200 is indeed a bit high... If you are 30, then your theoretical maximum is 240-30=210.... But, but maybe your moniter is a bit off... Unless you start feeling chest pains you're probably fine...
As for 'what is normal'? In rest (as in, sleep) most people have a heart rate of about 60-70, very fit people can be as low as 35. In day to day life (working your desk job, walking around) 80 is just fine. But when we start getting active your heart rate gets a lot higher...
When you run pretty fast (being very tired after 2-3min's) and your breathing very heavily, but your muscled aren't getting fatigued, you're probably around the 140-160 range: the Aerobic range. Above this you're muscles build up lactic acid and all that stuff....
Basically, just from your stats, you might just be a healthy person

The fitter a person is the larger the difference between his resting pulse/heart beat and his maximum pulse. If your resting pulse is say 58, considered a bradicardia, and your maximum is 200 without distress, then you are super fit and probably quite young. This huge heart rate reserve you have will serve you well-there is close to zero chance you wil get a heart attack. Another way to find out how fit you are is to find the difference between your maximum pulse rate during intense exercise and your pulse rate one minute after you stopped execising. If the drop is 30 bpm or less after one minute your chances of getting a heart attack are higher. If the reduction is more than 50 bpm then you have a reduced risk of a heart attack-you are quite fit.
A safe miximum pulse rate varies with different athletes. To some 160 bpm is maximum whilst others can clock close to 200 bpm. Marathon runners have larger hearts and also have lower maximum pulse rate. Sprinters would register higher maximum rate at the finish line.
A rough guide is 220 less your age, then depending on your fitness level, adjust this by a percentage deemed appropriate for you, i.e. 80%, 85%, 90%, or even lower at 60% to 40% for the lazy bones.

Maximum heart rate is 220 - your age. However reaching your maximum heart rate is pretty hard, so really you should be below it. I myself used to have Wolff-Parkinson White Syndrome which used to lead to severe tachycardia, so I know my maximum heart rate was blown out of the water. In an ideal world you should be working about 85% of your MHR

Maximum heart rate is theoretically 220-age. However depending on how active or fit the person is it can vary.

The average resting heart rate (for normal people) is arround 70-80. The average heart rate for athletes (not professionals) is arround 60-70. It is normal for you to reach high heart rates when you are working, this does not have anything to do with your fitness. Your resting heart rate and the time it takes for you to recover to a lower heart rate after an intense workout are both good ways of knowing if you are fit.
I did the test too and at the age of 20, I can reach 200 BPM if I am doing an intense exercice. When resting (laying down), I can reach as low as 46 BPM, with an average of about 52.

usually the for fit badminton players the estimation i use is 205 - age/2 . But it is of course best to do a real max-heart-rate test...
some heart rate monitors sometimes also have issuesand can "run away2 and produce erroneouusresult (I've think it is a bug, Ive seen that on Polar HR monitors a few times).

I am 36. my normal heart rate is 58.Physically active since as long as I can remember.playing badminton for last 5 years. Normally singles. Never felt a thing while playing.Never monitored my peak heart rate rather never thought of it. During my regular checkups my doctor always told me that I am fit that is why my normal heart rate is 58-60. Never had Blood pressure or Sugar problems. Two months back 2 consecutive nights had breathing problems.Went to the doctor next day. ECG, Blood pressure normal.Third day in the evening again breathing problem.Straightaway went to the hospital.Abnormality in ECG detected.suspected early symptoms of heart attack(How? why? why me?).Hospitalized immediately. Next day angiography done. No blockage in any arteries.Last two months on medications.Doctors are telling me to start playing badminton again gradually.But lost all the confidence.
The point is not to freighten anybody. just an advise that if you have crossed 30- 35 be a bit extra careful.

when i was 25 and biking regularly, i hit resting heart rate of 40. it was measured with a HRM. nowadays, i don't even want to know...

Doctors are not sure about the reason.Giving me two possible theories.1. blood clot in the heart.2. temporary Spasm in the arteries.God alone knows what that means.
