Our expert says:
I wouldn't worry about that. It's not that unusual to have an average of 170. It's high, sure, but that is largely a genetic thing, and the fact that you recover quickly suggests that this is normal. There are some people who would struggle to ever get their heart rate that high, others for whom it is very easy. It sounds as though you are one of those. So I wouldn't worry about it too much. Rather compare your heart rate to your own heart rate over time - that's the better comparison.
