His heart is stronger as well as being significantly larger. Per pump (stroke, beat), his trained heart can output a greater volume of blood than an untrained person (let's called the untrained person Joe Normal). So at rest, both Armstrong and Joe need to move the same volume of blood around per minute to keep everything oxygenated. Each beat of Armstrong's heart is going to move twice as much blood as a beat from Joe's. As a result, Armstrong's heart only needs to beat half as often to keep things oxygenated. How did this happen? Lots and lots of cardiovascular training. As the heart gets trained, it gets stronger and larger - it is a muscle, just like your biceps grow after multiple bicep curls in the gym. When Lance is sprinting as fast as he can, his heart is not pumping much more often than when a non-athlete is sprinting - but it's pumping out more blood per beat so he can go further and faster since his muscles can remain better oxygenation, produce less lactic acid and take longer to fatigue.

The resting phace of the cardiac cycle is known as the refractory period

Low resting heart rate for athletes is very common because their heart has become very efficient in pumping blood. Efficiency in emptying out the ventricles more fully could be why his heart rate is lower. If he can pump more blood in one beat than an untrained person that means he would have to pump less times per minute to get the same amount of blood through out the systemic circulation. Another possibility, though i'm not sure about this one, his body may be better at substance exchange at the capillary network in the systemic circulation or at the level of the alveoli in the pulmonary ciruculation.

Increasing extracellular potassium causes the resting membrane potential to become more positive.

Lance Armstrong has a resting heart rate of 30 - 35.

Yes. Bradycardia is a resting heart rate below 50 beats per minute. The heart slows because it has a more effective cardiac output, less pumping is needed to move the same amount of blood. ex: Lance Armstrong has a resting heart rate of 38 bpm

Your brain gets about 15 % of the blood supply of the resting body cardiac out put. Your brain consume about 20 % of the glucose consumed by resting body.

Resting heart rate = ~70 bpmTachycardia = >100 bpmBradycardia =

Resting heart rate goes down (maximum stays the same).

It depends how fit you are. The more fit you are, the slower your resting beats per minute will be. For example, Lance Armstrong has a resting rate of 30 bpm, which means he is incredibly fit.

well I'm not sure what "cardacc output" is but I certainly know what cardiac output is: the volume of blood pumped by the heart per minute (mL blood/min) for example an average person has a resting heart-rate of 70 beats per minute and a resting stroke volume of 70 milliliters per beat, so the cardiac out put is: Cardiac output= 70(beats) X 70 milliliters= 4900 milliliters per minute

Your sleeping heart rate is usually slower than your resting heart rate while awake. The actual number of beats will depend on different factors, such as fitness, resting rate, age, and whether you have any cardiac issues.

if there z the continuos contraction then it leads to cardiac which the blood supply also gets ceases and it leads to decreased transport of oxygen .which finally leads to apnoea r dysnoea.sometimes there occurs also a condition of hypertension at once.

It means you need to go see your doctor and have an EKG run, and probably a Cardiac Stress Test. Something is wrong. Your resting heart rate should be lower than when you are up and active.

Here you go. output is the volume of blood pumped by the heart per minute (mL blood/min). Cardiac output is a function of heart rate and stroke volume. The heart rate is simply the number of heart beats per minute. The stroke volume is the volume of blood, in milliliters (mL), pumped out of the heart with each beat. Increasing either heart rate or stroke volume increases cardiac output.Cardiac Output in mL/min = heart rate (beats/min) X stroke volume (mL/beat)An average person has a resting heart rate of 70 beats/minute and a resting stroke volume of 70 mL/beat. The cardiac output for this person at rest is:Cardiac Output = 70 (beats/min) X 70 (mL/beat) = 4900 mL/minute.

Your resting pulse is the rate of your pulse when you are resting (when your not doing exersice).

It means any of the following: you [singular] rest you [singular] are resting he rests he is resting she rests she is resting it rests it is resting As in English, 'resting' can be a euphemism for death.

It's a good question! The genius who asked this question knows the answer better. Due to aerobic exercise the cardiac out put increases. It increases five fold than normal. That means from five liters per minutes to twenty five liters per minute. Cardiac muscles becomes strong. Stroke volume increases. As a result the resting heart rate decreases. The resting heart rate of the athlete is usually only sixty beats per minutes, as against seventy two per minute in most of the people. In extreme cases much lower resting pulse rates are recorded.

The cat was resting on the floor

Mars Resting was created in 1640.

Your heart pumps about five liters of blood per minute. This is also called as cardiac out put. In severe exercise the cardiac out put can increase up to twenty five liters per minute.Resting heart pumps about five liters of blood per minute. In severe exercise the heart can pump up to twenty five liters of blood per minute.

15% according to Guyton Textbook of Medical Physiology. 50-55ml per 100grams brain tissue per minute, or 750ml blood per minute.
