recovery heart rate 


The heart rate measured at a fixed reference period–usually for one minute–after ending intense exercise.

As a rule, the greater the drop in heart rate after exercise during the reference period, the better shape the heart is in. Individuals whose heart rates drop by ≤ 12 bpm 1 minute after ending exercise have an increased risk of death.
