resting heart rate

I read somewhere that the fitter you are the slower your heart beats, I'm not sure how true this is. Anyway I'm quite fit and mine's 48 bpm

So what's your resting heart rate?

    mines 60bpm. i am not VERY fit. i saw a program once that said there was some sort of correlation between low resting heart rates and pyschopathic tendencies! too low is no good, although whats too low i cant remember.

    Mine usually hovers around 50 - 55 but I've had readings (when taking blood pressure) of 42.

    My old man has a low pulse rate too, he's normally between 45 - 50 but has 30 years on me.

    When I used to do cycle racing mine used to be sometimes down into the high 30's, now it's around 45. Migueal Indurain, a professional cyclist who one the Tour de France 5 times in a row had the lowest reported resting heart rate at 28 bpm.

    As you cardiovascular efficiency increases (that is your heart size and strength increases) it will result in a higher stroke volume - meaning that you require fewer strokes to push blood through the body. So basically the fitter you're the fewer beats you'll need at resting.

    The lowst human resting heart rate is in the mid 20's I think, it was a cyclist. I've never heard of a link between low heart rates and psychopaths.

    We did this at college the other day and mine was 51!! I thought that as a female at 37 this was good especially when all the 18 year old males were in the 60's!!

    Standard heart rate for a healthy 20-30 year old at rest is 70 beats per minute, although when I'm relaxing on the sofa it's at 60. I have a problem with high blood pressure though as it's 180. Could be an early sign of heart disease?

    Mines about 55 but I've had it up to 193 on the exercise bike and basically felt OK, my breathing was still quite steady even though my legs were going flat out.

    I used to take it on waking. I did a lot of cardio work :- 110 mile bike rides in 6 hours and other fun stuff :) Marathons too :D

    Edit : managed a max hr of about 205 when running, although I was only 17, and it just flicked on 205 for a few seconds.
