About Heart Rate Recovery Calculator (Formula)
The Heart Rate Recovery Calculator is a tool used to determine the Heart Rate Recovery (HRR) after a period of exercise.
The Heart Rate Recovery is the difference between the Heart Rate (HR) directly after exercise or a set and the Heart Rate after 1 minute of rest.
The formula used to calculate the Heart Rate Recovery is:
HRR = Heart Rate Directly after Exercise/Set (BPM) – Heart Rate after 1 minute of rest (BPM)
Heart rate recovery (HRR) is a measure of the change in heart rate after exercise, usually measured one minute after the end of exercise. The speed of HRR is related to cardiovascular fitness and is considered a predictor of cardiovascular health.
A faster HRR is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and a better overall cardiovascular fitness level.
