Yes it does affect the heart rate. Sex is an extremely physically demanding activity. Some people compare having one round of sex to running around a football ground 3 times which equals running nearly 1 km. So when you indulge yourself in such activity, naturally your heartbeat would go up...

Age and physical fitness have any effect on heart rate?

Both age and physical fitness can have an effect on heart rate. In simple terms, the heart is a giant muscle. If you go through your life without working out, then this muscle will have to work harder to get its work done, which is helping to supply oxygen to the rest of the body. Working out, increases the workload capacity of this muscle. The average resting pulse for most people is between 70-76 BPM. A good resting HR is under 70. Many avid runners have a resting HR at or under 60 BPM. This is why aerobic exercise. (exercise that also works out the heart) is so important. Think of it this way. If you can knock 10 BPM off your Heart rate, think about how much easier your heart will work over its lifetime.

What Exercise Heart Rate Means To You?

Many people have heard that doing cardiovascular exercise can improve heart health. But what people don't realize is that cardiovascular exercise must be done the right way in order the get any kind of benefit for the heart. The term exercise heart rate is something many people are not familiar with and is an important aspect to getting a quality cardiovascular workout.To understand your exercise heart rate, you need to understand some other important terms first.Resting Heart Rate- This term represents your heart rate at rest. This number is usually taken first upon waking up in the morning. For example, you could have a resting heart rate of 60 beats per minute.Maximum Heart Rate- This number is derived from subtracting 220 from your age. For example, a 40 year old would have a maximum heart rate of 180.Heart Rate Reserve- This is the range of your pulse rate between your resting heart rate and your maximum heart rate. In the example above, the heart rate reserve is between 60-180.Exercise Heart Rate- This term is the one we are discussing. Basically your exercise heart rate is the pulse you have during exercise measured as a percentage of your heart rate reserve. For example, if your resting heart rate is 60 and you reach a pulse of 120 during exercise, you are said to be exercising at about 50% of your heart rate reserve.Your exercise heart rate is an important determination of how hard you should exercise. Here is an example of what it's used for:Fat Burning Exercise requires you to have and exercise heart rate of 50-60% in order to burn fat.Aerobic Exercise is the cardiovascular exercise you need for great heart health. Your exercise heart rate should be 60-70% for aerobic exercise to take place.Anaerobic Exercise usually occurs in athletes that are constantly working. The body cannot keep up with the oxygen required and the body's fuel reserves are used. The exercise heart rate for this type is 80-90%.To get the maximum heart benefit from cardiovascular exercise, be sure to exercise at 60-70% of your heart rate reserve.
