Adrenalin Rush

What happens to your heart rate when you skydive? It's pretty impressive:
I purchased a heart rate monitor and tested it out on a very intense skydive. a RAFT DIVE. You can see my heart rate skyrocket during freefall.

Now you can see what my heart rate did when during the ~24 minute ride in the plane up. It was pretty consistent at about 130 bmp which is still pretty freakin high. Look at it shoot waaaay up during our 1 minute freefall. 240 bpm???

But then again, I wonder if he has SVT?

That's frickin cool.

No wonder life insurance policies often exclude such activities as reimbursable events.
