Max Pulse Change

Did my annual MP Test on Sunday. I do it on a Turbo so that I have repeatable testing conditions. All went ok but why is my MP getting higher as I age? It has risen by 2 bpm each year for the last 3 yrs. Shouldn't it drop? I'm 43 yrs and been cycling/racing for years.

    The value you're measuring is going up, not necessarily your actual HR max. Not the same thing.
    More problems but still living....
  • blood pressure :lol:
  • That's interesting because the last time it was checked (3 months ago) it was higher than I had seen it before. The nurse said nothing but I noticed. At the time I was more concerned with the high cholesterol figure (the first time I'd had this checked).

    As I get older I begin to wonder, although I'm not sure what ?
