I am 22, and do real cardiovascular exercise very rarely. I have trouble gaining weight and frankly do not do running because I know I will have to consume more calories and I don’t want a deficit to impact my size gains. Also, well–I hate running.
However, my heart rate is very high–83 bpm, I just checked five minutes ago. It typically fluctuates around low to high 70s. Is this just something that I should pay no mind to, or is it an indicator of a weak heart and I should start engaging in an aerobic workout to lower it?
My bloodwork has always been strong and I have very good blood pressure.
