      The answer to this is based on what you are actually doing.
      If you are resting and not moving your heart rate can range from 60-100 beats per minute.
      If you are exercising your heart rate can rise up to 150 – 180 beats per minute.Whilst you sleep at night your heart rate can drop to 40-50 beats per minute but everyone is different so there is no exact rule for this.
