I agree with Geoff Hutchison, but I also have to add that an exercise you don't know or you haven't done many times are always more physically demanding than an exercise which you perform for years, because your body remembers movements, so it seems easier to you.

The max heart rate is genetically defined and decreases with the age, but there are young people with a "low" max heart rate and there are also old people with "high" heart rates. And both is ok with no health risks. Hope I could help you.

The stroke volume increases if you exert yourself more. The better trained you are, the more the stroke volume will increase as you exercise harder, which means that the heart rate will increase by a lesser amount. http://www.livestrong.com/article/403152-why-does-stroke-volume-increase-during-exercise/ Stroke volume increases depending on the type of ...

Im older than you (42) but my rest heart rate is at present 63 bpm too. Surprisingly, 140 bpm is another coincidence as well: I have it really hard to go higher than that at the stationary bike. I recently managed to achieve 150 but I had to push so hard that my knees hurted during days and I stopped biking altogether. I think it is a good sign that you ...

Max heart rate is not the benchmark for performance. VO2 Is also one component along with muscle endurance. You can not push the heart to go over a certain range in order to achieve a physical goal. Also, the body has very well defined mechanics to control the heart rate voluntarily which might not be altered as such...

As your level of fitness increases, the cardiovascular system gets more and more efficient at delivering oxygen and necessary nutrients to the muscles throughout the body - so the fitter you get, the more "effort" (as in physical work) you can put in at the same heart rate. If you get a heart rate monitor and always run at exactly your "optimal fat burning" ...

Different people have different size hearts, and that will effect their maximum heart rate. I knew a women who had a working heart rate about 220; she just had a small heart. If you doctor has cleared you, I would not worry about it. It is generally better to use a perceived exertion scale for workouts instead of basing on heart rates unless you have a ...

There are many, simply Google: Heart Rate Zone alarm or alternitively Cardio Trainer and you'll get the likes of Cardio Trainer or Heart Rate and Pulse Monitor. Oh, you haven't said which flavour of device / phone, you're looking for.

Your maximum heart rate depends considerably on the activity. I haven't done crossfit before, but certainly you're involving more muscle groups than running. Biking and running have different HR zones because of weight-bearing vs. sitting. I suspect your HR zones for Crossfit and running are simply different. It sounds like you're working hard with both ...
