Is a heart rate of 194 dangerous?
I've just got back from the Gym (I'm 16 and I hardly ever get any exercise, although surprisingly quite skinny) and the machines were saying my heart rate was at 194 beats per minute. I was just wondering whether this was dangerous and I should slow down, or is it safe to have your heart beat that fast during exercise?


It's not great, then again it may have been an anomaly in the machine

That's not the best heart rate, that much is for sure. You did get that heart rate reading after you exercised so I'm assuming that's not your natural heart rate. However, you may want to keep exercising. Perhaps you should check your blood pressure.

I Watch Scrubs
Lilly's correct.

There's technically an increased risk, heart rate aside, in abruptly starting a rigorous exercise regimen from no activity, but this tends to apply more to older people. Gradually increase your exercise, this is most consistent with you being out of shape

It's not going to kill you to be up that high, but you shouldn't stay there for long. Stay between 160 and 180. That's a good zone for improving cardiovascular, and if you're shooting for it, losing weight.

Increased heart rate is not a measure of good physical fitness. In fact, a high heart rate is related to poor physical fitness. It means your body is inneficient, and needs to work harder to maintain itself under stress.

At your age your 'maximal' heart rate is about 204 bpm (220 minus your age). At the gym you need to look at working at no more that 85% of your maximal which would be about 174 bpm.

194 bpm ISN'T dangerous if you're working out it just means that you're not that fit so your heart has to work quite hard when you do exercise. As you exercise more you'll find it harder to get your heart rate that high.

It's actually normal for your heart rate to increase with exercise, it would be abnormal if it didn't increase.

It's only showing that you're unfit.

Try to stick to 85% of maximal, though, as you'll be able to exercise longer and will get more benefits.

That is rather high to say the least. I am over 50 and when working out my heart rate is around 120. What is your at rest heart rate. I would suggest talking to your doctor.
