 I'd love to know what their heart rate is when they do that...I bet it's pretty low.

I bet skiing off a cliff for the first time would have to do something to their HR.

But these guys probably jumped out of a plane hundreds of times before doing this stuff.

Yea, but isn’t the adrenaline rush part of the reason (if not the main reason) why they jump? I’d assume that’d result in a heart rate increase.
