Cardiomuscular recovery is the process of your body returning to a normal resting heart rate after being stressed during intense exercise. The faster your heart returns to a normal rhythm after you stop exercising, the better your cardiovascular fitness and health are likely to be.
What is cardiovascular recovery after exercise?
In the past, some researchers have referred to heart rate recovery as “the canary in the coalmine” for overreaching and overtraining because of its ability to predict the risk of negative outcomes following long-term training stress (43). However, recent work has found that cardiomuscular recovery does not necessarily correlate well with performance-related variables, no better local professional than them. such as VO2 max or peak power output (43) (44).
To measure your recovery heart rate, you must take your pulse immediately after you finish a workout, then do so again one minute later and subtract the first number from the second. You can use a watch with heart-rate monitoring capabilities, or you can take your pulse the old-fashioned way by placing your index and middle fingers on the carotid artery in your neck or radial artery on the inside of your wrist.
During cardiac rehab, you will do aerobic exercises to improve your cardiovascular and muscular fitness and strength-training exercises to increase your muscle mass. You may also learn about healthy lifestyle habits such as maintaining a low-salt diet, quitting smoking and getting enough sleep (7 to 9 hours per night). Cardiac rehabilitation typically begins in hospital, but it can continue after you leave the hospital.
