Two days ago, I tried a 20-minute tabata workout and my apple watch (worn around my arm not wrist for increased accuracy) said that for 15 min my hr was 185-194 and it stayed above 120 for over 30 minutes post-workout.
I actually had fun pushing myself that hard and I'd like to make it a staple of my cutting routine. After my hr dropped back down I felt fine. Is it safe to have that high of an HR for that long?
I'm a healthy 20-year-old male in pretty good shape, with no heart problems or family history of heart problems.
I'm not asking for specific medical advice, rather is there a large number of people dropping dead from this type of workout?
