Hello all. I notice that my heart rate stays elevated long after I workout. It is usually stays high up until bed time. I just started working out about 3 weeks ago, but really got serious for the last week and a half.
Is this normal?

depending on the workout mine usually gets up there for like 10-15 mins after
when you do alot of cardio you're heart will be able to pump more blood in less pumps as it gets stronger
i wouldent worry too much
stay hydrated after though
If it gets bad you should see a doctor like if you pass out or something149.1 LBS

id get to the doctor, it shouldent stay elevated for very long after the last setfavorite quote, (Ronnie Coleman) "Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but nobody wanna lift no heavy-ass weight!" Not sure why hes using a double negitive there, I think its cause all the blood in his head rushed into his legs after all those 800 pound squats, lol.
Best possible advice: make the mind-muscle connection.

Ok so it is normal then? Cool. I haven't passed out yet. Its almost liek I am having a panic attck but it isn't an attack. Its just the really fast heart beat.
I try to get my HR up to 150-152 and keep it there for about 20 minutes or so.
I am guessing that since I have been pretty inactive over the last 6-7 years it is just the ol' ticker protesting the new activity.

It depends. If you are not fit and exercise, your heart rate will be high for a while afterwards. If you are fit, your heart rate will decrease after exercise. The more fit you are, the faster it will drop back down to normal.No post is professional medical, nutrition or training info! MRIs:

You should absolutely go to the doctor, like the other guys stated it should return to normal after training, of course the more fit you are the faster it will return to normal, but you stated that it is remaining high until bedtime. Not sure what time you workout, but I am guessing that this is a long time! Take it easy until you get it checked out and are cleared, better to be safe than sorry!!!

For a long time I was postitive that I had an irregular heart beat, had a couple of ekg's and the docs couldn't find anything, I guess it was all in my head....by going to a doctor at least you will have piece of mind.
