    40 thats incredible, I consider myself in good physical shape, I hike and ski at altitudes around 9000-13000 feet, and my resting heart rate is around 80 I think. I can hike all day without getting tired but my heart rate usually stays up there

    Yes, you can increase the speed but make sure the heart rate monitor on the machine is accurate first. There have been some cardio. machines that I have used and based on my perceived level of exertion, I knew I was working harder than the monitor read.

    that is exactly what I was thinking....I wouldnt put too much faith in the cardio machines heart rate monitor...I have been on some that gave me my heart rate without even having the touched the sensors...
