    Had a deload week the previous week.

    took my measurements yesterday

    RHR: 46-51bpm
    12 minute cooper test (bag work/muay thai)

    RPE 8-9 (I went as hard as I can sustain)
    Average heart rate 170bpm
    Maximum heart rate 181bpm
    Heart rate recovery 150bpm within 1 minute
    Heart rate recovery 130bpm within 2 minutes

    What suprised me is that my RHR is pretty low but my HRR is not as well as I want it to be. Does this mean more liss (steady state)?

    Do you get similar results from doing the cooper's test running?

    What are you doing while recovering?

    More importantly, it's inappropriate to compare running vs bagwork for testing.

    Edit: was your maxHR at the very end of the test?
