I am an 18 year old male. My resting heart rate is normal and usually 55-65bpm. However, my active heart rate seems to get quite high after running for a few minutes. It hit around 185bpm...any idea why my active heart rate is so high even though the resting heart rate is fine? I don't take any medication and do not have any known conditions. I have played basketball for years quite often too. I have never passed out or felt any serious side effects from playing for a while.View Thread
But I am asking why my resting heart rate is around 55-65bpm yet my active heart rate hits 185bpm without too much effort? If my heart was not healthy the resting heart rate would probably not be that low. Thus, I want to know what condition may constitute a normal resting heart rate but really high active one. I looked online and couldn't find any literature on this circumstance.
