Resting Heart Rate Table

A normal resting heart rate can range anywhere from 40 to 100 beats per minute. Below is a chart
relating resting heart rate and fitness level. As can be seen on this chart, your resting heart rate
can vary with your fitness level and with age — the fitter you are, generally the lower the resting
heart rate. This is due to the heart getting bigger and stronger with exercise, and getting more
efficient at pumping blood around the body - so at rest more blood can be pumped around with
each beat, therefore fewer beats per minute are required.

I'm 19, quite tall (over 6 foot), less than 10% body fat, about 65kg and exercise regularly but
my resting heart rate has always been 80bpm (below average).

Anyone have any idea why my heart rate is so high all the time? I've been exercising more
lately and it won't go down. I don't eat badly (my family eats the same stuff and their heart
rates are all fine) so what gives?

Am I dying?

You measure your resting heart rate when you first wake in the morning I use and app on
my iPhone :)

That's not true. Your HR will be considerably lower when asleep than "at rest" but your
sympathetic drive increases during waking and so you will be measuring a depressed but
rising HR first thing in the morning upon waking. "At rest" means not active (and have not
been active immediately prior to taking the reading.

Eh, many of those devices are quite accurate for resting heart rates... Yes, when you move
around and exercise it becomes increasingly inaccurate but they are plenty good for
resting heart rates.

I'm an active 42 year old male who is 6 foot 8 inches tall and weighs 105kg my resting heart
rate is 44 which is good but we are all different and I wouldn't worry too much about yours.
Instead eat well train sensibly get your rest and listen to your body look after your back and
knees and you'll have a long and active life.

I am 49, very athletic and eat very well. I drink wine very minimal. For some reason, I had
high blood pressure after returning to the states. I was in the gym and felt nervous/dizzy,
sweaty. My BP was high at the dr. He just prescribed 20mg Benicar. It's my 2nd day and
my BP is 124/70 with a resting rate of 75. I ok so far, just a little dizzy and weird from the
medication which is normal for a week or two. What do you think?

I am 70 just check my heart. Its 64.  I work 9 hrs.a day and doe moderate exercise.  Whoo
makes me happy. (from Ana pumpuam, Apr 2013)

I'm 5'6" about 169. I just started running 3 months ago. I run about 6 miles a day 4 days a
week. I also do heavy weight training. I look very athletic and can do 100 push ups 100 pull-ups
100 situps 100 squats but my resting bpm can be any where from 80 to 105. Never lower. I
thought I was healthy (I eat brown rice, wild rice, I use a juicer once a week and eat lots of
veggies and fruits). (from Jeff, Apr 2013)

Lol, I am 6'2'' 300lbs 20 yrs old and yes I know I am trying to loose weight. And I have a resting
heart rate of 54. Nothing my doctor is concerned about he says that it is great. My brother is
5'8'' 18 yrs old 150lbs and has a resting heart rate of 39. The doctor kinda freak out each time
they take blood pressure and heart rate. Although he has run a few marathons he doesn't run
consistently, just when he feels like it. (from Bob, Apr 2013)

I am 22, I do little to no exercise but my heart rate is 52. I'm not fat, I eat healthily, I'm just
curious what this means. (from Anna, Apr 2013)

I'm a 19 yr old female, 5'3'', 105 lbs. my heart rate at rest is 110. I'm worried. My heart beats
really hard. I can feel it against my mattress. Should I be concerned..? :( (from Malory, Apr

I show mine is at 80 which is surprising because I eat clean, do lots of weiggts and hiit workouts
4-6 times a week. Im about 118lbs and 5'4 (from Jennifer Vega, Apr 2013)

I used to have a poor resting heart rate and bad blood pressure  Since I Started exercising it is
now in the good range and my blood pressure is optimum getting near to low pressure but I
think charts maybe don't go far enough for active people. (from Mike, Apr 2013)

Hi, I am 17 years old and am pretty active, yet my resting heart rate is an average of 100bpm. I
am 5,4 and 127 pounds. Is there something wrong with me? (from Amanda, Apr 2013)

18year old male. Drink about 20 beers and have 10 shots a weekend. Run 10 miles a day, 6 days
a week. Resting heart rate is 52. (from Nate, Apr 2013)

I'm 24 and I have a resting heart rate between 57-60! woohoo! I do resistance training, HIIT,
kettlebell training and jumping ropes 5 to 6 days a weeks. I'm definitely going to keep this up :)
(from Nat, Mar 2013)

I am 28 yo female I am 5 4'  157 lbs with a large frame.  My heart rate is in the excellent
category.  Now i see why I have more endurance than many of my tinier gym mates;  my heart is
more efficient:) (from alexandra, Mar 2013)

I'm 15 and have a resting heartbeat of 35-48 is this bad? I run excessively (5-13 miles a day).
Maybe the low number is because I'm so in shape? (from Madeline Pearce, Mar 2013)

At 50 years old my heart rate is not where it needs to be. It is 82 and that is extremely poor for a
women of my age. The problem is I have a hard time with exercise due to my osteoporosis. It
pains me to be so unhealthy as I used to be  a gym teacher. Help!!!! (from Linda Turner, Mar

I am 43 work out in spirts of a few months at a time.  Have worked out and ran all my life.  My
current resting heart rate is 41 and I just went to the doctor to have an ekg done.  He said
everything looked normal with the rythme but, when I laid down and relaxed for the test my
pulse rate for the test went down to 34 bpm.  He asked me all of the normal questions do you
get dizzy "no", loss of balance "no", tired "no'.  I fee great.  I'm 5 7  180  and very muscular.
(from Paco, Mar 2013)

Im 15 years turing 16, im worried about my health because my heart rate when im resting is
around 80 bpm. And when my excesising it ranges from 235-255 bpm. Why this is happening?
(from Tshegofatso, Mar 2013)

I have 2 HR monitors that are both calibrated. I am a racing cyclist and I smoke yep bizarre
combo resting HR of 46. (from Jason golden Virginia rocks, Mar 2013)

I'm a 61 yr old male. 5'10" and after adopting the 5&2 diet last August my weight is stable at
168lbs.  This gives me a BMI of 24.  I exercise regularly (dancing, walking and cycling) and my
resting heart rate is 53 now that I've got my weight down by 18lbs. I haven't a current blood
pressure reading but I've been around 120/80 for the last 15 years and lower before that.  I
suspect my cholesterol will be at the higher end of the normal range. My family is relatively long
lived (Dad died at 82 and my mother, though not well, will be 95 in May.) I eat a balanced diet
and we eat only small amounts of processed foods. I drink moderate amounts - half to one
bottle of wine per week over several days and the odd bottle of beer and glass of whisky
indicates that I'm no paragon. I eat some red meet, along with chicken and fish and have at
least one vegetarian main meal per week. I make sure to have regular portions of vegetables
and fruit. My work life tends to be fairly hectic and I travel a lot, so my lifestyle is not stress free.
However, I do make sure to have me time even when I'm traveling. The point of the above is that
it's the entire picture that counts. A sensible approach to life making sure the major risk factors
are controlled is, along with our genetic profile, all that one can do. (from Alan, mar 2013)

I am 40 and I am fit part of the year. Winter I kind of let myself slide then during the warmer
months I jog several times a week and eat better and get to a normal BMI.  Right now I am just
starting up with fitness again so I'm 20 lbs too heavy but I'll have it lost in a few months.  My
resting heart rate is 54 - it's been that way for as long as I can remember though.  I'd think that
because I am not a consistent athlete and I'm aging it would be higher. Could there be
something wrong with me or is it just lucky genetics? (from Blah, Mar 2013)
I am the 44yr old female mentioned earlier, RHR of 44 first thing rising to 52 throughout the day
and I agree with a lot of the comments re exercising and lousy maths. I run 4 hours a week.
Cycle daily, always have, about 6hrs total. Gym 3hrs. Circuit train 2hrs. 140lb size 10uk. Use it
or loose it! (from Happy, Mar 2013)

I'm 14 and my resting heart rate is 120? I wouldn't say that I'm unfit or anything, I'm 5 ft 4 and
weigh 110 pounds, should I be worried? (from uh-oh, Mar 2013)

I am 15 years old, 5 foot 2, 120 pounds. I'm an athlete. I love to run and I play softball and
practice everyday of the week. Our coaches are hard on us so we stay in shape. In the past 2-3
years I've been dealing with a rhuematological condition Reflex Neurovascular Dystrophy/
Amplified Pain Syndrome which is like fibromyalgia or arthritis. All of my doctors say that in a
coupld years the diagnosis could be changed to Lupus which I believe that I have the onset of. I
realize that you don't specialize in that but I've had consistently high blood pressure and a
resting heart rate of 90 and when I exercise it gets up to 201 bpm. I tire out more easily and I
have a hard time running with the girls.I get dizzy, feel like throwing up and get a funny feeling
in my chest. I've seen a cardiologist and they have told me I have an innocent heart murmur. A
lot of doctors have no answer or just think nothing is wrong. I'm reaching out for an answer but
if you cannot help I will appreciate the fact that you took the time to read this. I have a very
strong mind and won't give up easily. (from  Julianna Robbins, Mar 2013)

I am 32 years old; <100 lbs; 4 ft 11 in.; My resting heart rate fluctuates widely between 70 to 90
bpm.  I consider myself fit and involved in a wide range of activity.  Bouldering 3/ wk, modern
dance 1/wk, yoga, (daily) weight training 2-3x/wk, swimming laps 1/ wk, and run 1/wk.  My
main source of transportation is my legs.  I feel fit. But if a low heart correlates to a high fitness
level then does that imply I may not be as fit as i think? ... Should I increase the intensity of my
aerobic activity? (from Shannon, Mar 2013)

I am 35 and i cycle regularly. Today when I cycled for 24 minutes to work, My average HR was
218bpm with a max of 254bpm. I am quite worried so I checked my resting heartrate sitting at
my desk and it appears to be around 85bpm. My weight is 88kg and i am 177cm tall. I am
scared because I don't want to die. I will book in to see a Doctor but can anyone else give
meany advise? (from chris, ACyclist, Mar 2013)

I am 17 and my resting heart rate is 75. I went to the gym once a week and spent maybe 10-20
minutes there. The rest of my free time is sitting on my laptop and watching the movie or do
some homework. (from Mabine, Mar 2013)

I'm 31 and in the best shape of my life. A few years ago i was clinically obese with a rhr in the
high eighties. Last year i shed 100 lbs ran my first half and i have a rhr of 57! If i can do it so
can anyone. (from simon, Mar 2013)

Hello!  I am 39 years old next week and my resting heart rate is 59 - wayhay!  It used to be over
70 - I managed to knock it down by doing high intensity interval training workouts at my Fitness
center.  I am 122 pounds :-) (from Sarah Mines, Mar 2013)

I'm 23, female and my resting heart rate is 60 BPM. I never really exercised before, but I started
about a week and a 1/2 ago. I workout for 45 mins. I do interval training. For reference I am
5'4'' 130lbs (from Selly, Mar 2013)

Mine's 39 bpm..  Been hammering cardio 5 days a week and eating clean... 5.4 and 78kg (from
Neil, Mar 2013)

Hi, I am 57 with a heart rate of 48 bpm. As I am not doing a great deal of exercise after an
illness, is this normal as it is not on the chart for my age group. (from Barry, Mar 2013)

I'm 5 10, 18 years old, with a rest heart rate of 96, wtf is wrong with me! (from Gabe, Mar 2013)

I am 26, I have lost 34 ponds so far. I still need to lose about 80 more. I bicycle 2-5 times a
week and have a resting HR of 67-74. I have a long way to go but I am getting there. (from JB,
Mar 2013)

The only test for fitness is how well you can endure a particular task. HR is irrelevant. My rest
rate is 60 if I don't exercise. With moderate exercise it drops to 50 bpm. Intense exercise it
drops to 40. Low rest rates run in the family so it's poorly a genetic factor. (from Mike, Mar

I'm training for a half marathon and recently I checked my resting heart-rate, it was 46 beats a
minute. I was concerned but it seems as though that that number is about right for the amount
of training I'm doing. (from Runner, Mar 2013)

I'm 44 and my RHR is 46 I workout 4 times a week I do spin, kick boxing and boot camp classes,
when i workout my HR is about 160  80% of the class, I  eat berry lithe fat food and consume a
lot of vegetables. (from Just saying, Mar 2013)

I'm a 20 year old female. 165 cm and weigh 54 kilos. I hardly ever exercise besides for walking
my dog and the occasional bike ride . My resting heart rate is 45 bpm. Is this normal? (from
Erin, Mar 2013)

Hi guys, I'm 36, endomorph, BMI < 22, was leading a very sedentary life for more than 2 years. I
was shocked to find that my RHR was 76 beats a minute. Eight days back, I downloaded a
pedometer app and started doing 10,000 steps daily, sometimes even 15,000 and yesterday my
RHR was 69 beats. I still have a long way to go, but should get into the 65 range in a month.

Some of these comments have had me laughing out loud, the guy with the 359 bpm going full
on into matrix mode, sarcasm is wasted! I'm 36 yo man, 5ft 11, 190 lbs. could do with shedding
a little more fat but exercise 6 times a week, run 3/4 miles most days and gym it as well.
 Usually run a little longer 1  day at the weekend 10K+. Resting heart rate is 43 bpm and
122/75 BP,  I think a lot of this is also genetics as well as low stress, exercise and eating
healthy. I'm no Phd though and this is just from what I have read and friends I know in the
fitness world. (from Funnyrunner, Mar 2013)

well based on the comments i see, it appears that the resting heart rate depends on too many
variables. needless to say this is only for informational purposes in most cases though. im a 27
yr old with a heart resting heart rate of 52. my best running time is 32min for a total of 4 miles
and i run about 3-4 times a week. it seems i fall in the correct cagetory.

32 yo male, 1 hour lifting weights + 1 hour cardio, 5 times a week... heart rate of 47... thing is
i'm 20kg over my weight. lol (from Joey, Mar 2013)

Im 28 and have a resting heart rate of 47. I train 7days a week ranging from 2hr rugby sessions,
10mile runs and military fitness tests. On top of this i work 12hrs a day in a glass factory. i have
done nothing but train and keep myself in peak physical condition from being 4yo to joining the
army to leaving and commiting to a healthy life so m daughter realises the importance of being
healthy. NO WAY someone who smokes, drinks and doesnt train can have a healthier resting
heart than me. i agree BAD MATHS!!! (from Gav 28, Feb 2013)

I'm 17, I do very little excercise. I climb 4 flights of stairs (up and back down) nearly 10 times a
week and that's all I do. Most of the time I either sit at my laptop playing games or I'm eating
unhealthily yet I'm pleased to know my resting heart rate is steady at the 59bpm mark. :) (from
Matt, Feb 2013)

I am a 37 yo woman, 5' 7" 130 lbs. I run 25-35 miles per week and I eat incredibly heathy. My
resting rate is 72. One would think I'd be closer to athlete range, but I'm not and not going to
worry about it. Normal is different for everyone unless the number is extreme.  Y'all shouldn't
worry so much. (from Ana, Feb 2013)

Hi. I am 28 years old, 6'5" and weigh 100KG. I run 2km and climb 340 steps (17 stories) all in
one go 3 time s a week. I plan to increase this. Also I have smoked for 13 year (avg. 10 a day).
And I drink at least once a week (Heavy - party style). My resting heart rate is ~60-65. I have
compared this to certain days when I dont smoke and my resting heart rate goes down to
55-60. (from Goldfish, Feb 2013)

I am Dr Dre and my beats per minute depends on the track I'm rapping on.  Usually I like a 120,
but sometimes I gotta slow it down to 60, ya feel me? (from Dr Dre, Feb 2013)

My resting heart rate has fluxuated between 59 and 68 for as long as I can remember keeping
track of it. I have always been extremely active but because of other genetic health issues
(hypothyroidism) I have been overweight since about age 13. I was in many sports throughout
high school including swimming which I continued through my freshman year in college. That
year I was in the best shape of my life and my RHR sat firmly at 59 BPM. I am currently in an
aerobic dance class and pilates, both are great and I definately recommend them to every one.
My aerobic dance professor told me that a resting heart rate in the range I stated was really low
and that I might have low blood pressure. I have recently done some research and found that I
am completely normal and my doctors have always commented that I have excellent blood
pressure ratings so I'm very curious to know why my professor thought that my range was low. I
do have a very difficult time raising my pulse though. I must train quite rigorously to get my
pulse to stay at 140 and above. I can jog a mile and a half and still not break 100 BPM. Is this
common? I usually just tack it up to my body's muscle memory and endurance training. I've had
so much endurance training that I think my body just expects more of a workout. (from Rachel
L., Feb 2013)

I'm 96 years old and have exercised hard my whole life, competed in many triathlon and
ultrathon events, including 200+ mile 60 hr events. my resting heart rate is 0, i am dead. lol!

I am 48 and have a resting heart rate of 50. I work out at least an hour a day and am also a
distance runner. Feel really good about this result (from livesimplecolorado, Jan 2013)

i am 1 years old and my resting heart rate is 50 probably because i work out every day (from
sanjay, Jan 2013)

I'm 32 and slightly underweight but always have been. I run 5 km 3 days a week and my resting
heart rate changes all the time. It is anywhere between 55 and 80. I think people are worrying
too much about their resting heart rate and should worry more about what they're eating,
drinking and the amount of exercise they do. Being on your feet all day is not exercise, it doesn't
get your heart rate up considerably like running or training does. Get proper exercise! (from
Candice, Jan 2013)

I'm 15 and my resting heart rate is 55 but would like it to be better. I cycle seriously 5 times a
week, with 3 interval sessions and 2 longer endurance sessions (30-80 miles). That is in the
winter when I'm training. I would like to improve my diet and become healthier. How? (from Jed,
Jan 2013)

Mine was 150 but I only weigh 340 lbs and only eat McDonalds ONCE a week ... I shop at
wallmart and that involves lots of walking. this is inaccurate. (from georgia, Jan 2013)

I am a 50 year old woman. I train 6 days per week 60-90 min of cardio activity per session. My
resting heart rate is normally around 36-39 beats per minute.  My max is 185-190. My heart
rate drops very quickly at rest.  Even despite the training I do, I believe my resting rate is
genetically influenced as most of my family have very low resting heart rates; even those who do
not exercise regularly. (from syd, Jan 2013)

I had 72 beats but I'm 14 I work out every day for 1 hour and I go to school which lets me extra
size even more. I eat healthy. But heart stroke does run in my family. I really want to be in the
athlete zone but I'm not. Why?!!! (from sofia, Jan 2013)

To Sofia: Sofia your only 14 and you're a female. Physiology shows that children have faster
heartbeats than adults. For instance, a baby's heart rate will be much higher than yours.
Additionally females have a higher heart rate than men. You do not need to worry. As you age
you're heart rate will become smaller as your heart increases in size from exercise and you
get better bloodflow as your body stops growing. Hope that helps.

I'm 17 years old and I played soccer for 10 years and do long distance running often. I am In
the gym everyday when I wake up, go to school for 8 hours and then go to work. I'm ALWAYS on
my feet! I have 61 bpm and I don't see how that is even possible for people who say they run
about 5 miles a week to have a less bpm than I do! You're clearly not doing your rest right
because a man by David goggins did 100 mile run and lot more than that && has a heart rate of
35 bpm. NO WAY y'all can too. (from Lindsey akinn, Jan 2013)

hello im a 27year old male my resting heart rate is 110 bpm. i am not over weight i take bicycle
rides daily i get more then needed exercise wise i never really have any down time i guess u
would call me a jack of all traits i do house calls for everything plumbing drywall electrical i can
build a house from dirt up. (from Steven, Jan 2013)

To everyone saying,"hurr durr i walk 1 mile 3 times a week n ride bikes n eat healthy my
heartrate is 26." You are wrong, and can't do a simple calculation. David Goggins is an elite
ultramarathoner. He has a heart rate of 32 bpm. He runs 15-20 miles each morning and then
bikes 30 miles. Do you people seriously think you have a hart rate that rivals a man who
dedicates 50% to 75% of his day exercising? No I don't think so. I think it's more likely you just
cant do the test correctly. (from herpderp, Jan 2013)

Herpderp - you are a winner. Some people cant do maths. "Oh im overweight and dont
excercise and my heart rate is 40" ... WRONG. You are BAD at MATHS. (from lol, Jan 2013)

I have a resting heart rate between 50 and 60 which for my age rates me as athletic on the
chart. But I never do any exercise and I'm at least three stone overweight. Proves diet and
exercise are unnecessary. For me at least. I have a very healthy ticker without either. (from Laura
Marcus, Jan 2013)

I'm 50 and my resting heart rate is 44. I only jog about 5 miles a week and play tennis doubles
twice per week. My body get tired way before I get winded. I thinks it's hereditary. My doctor
thinks I'm a marathon runner. Lol (from Ted, Dec 2012)

I'm 22, weigh 63kg, 1m72. 68bpm at rest. But have had it drop to 35 when fainting because of
hypoglycaemia and anemia. I would say training is good, but it counts for little unless you eat
properly. And for some, you have to take in more specific things. Genetics play a huge role. Your
height, the immune system, the muscle fibers predisposition, your heart muscle, lung capacity ...
You can train to adapt, but if you need to pump blood from your heart further away to your
extremities you might need a more efficient heart rate. (from Sam, Nov 2012)

This, lacking references, seems like a bunch of haphazardly grouped numbers. I'm 35. I race
bicycles. I'm nowhere near an elite athlete. My resting heart rate goes from 36 to 42, depending
on the training load. When very fatigued, it has been 32. Max heart rate has dropped from 195
to about 190 since my 20's. Some fellow cyclists have very different ranges, especially at the
top end. Some guys my age top at 205-210 bpm. No, they are not about to die - their heart
simply beats faster than mine. At the same intensity, our coach's HR is always about 20 beats
higher. Which is to say - it's all individual. Yes, there are correlations, but a big part of this is
body size (as in height/body frame) and heart size. If you want an opinion on your health,
please consult your physician. This is crock. The real indicator for fitness is how much your HR
has changed with an exercise regime (or lack thereof). (from Rod, Nov 2012)

I'm a seventeen year old female, I used to be a soccer player but I still exercise regularly at the
gym and go for runs, and my resting heart rate is 50. I also have low blood pressure (My
diastolic pressure is 50 which is apparently 10 below the normal range but my systolic pressure
of 104 is within the normal range). Apparently if heart rate and blood pressure is too low then it
could be problematic? (from Yensie, Nov 2012)

I'm a 29 yr old female I'm 5'9 and approx 135 kgs my resting rate was 90. I work in a call center
and don't get many opportunities to be active due to long hours at work.  I catch the bus into
the city and try to get off the stop before home most nights so I have further to walk, what kind
of activity can I do for a very time poor person? (from Sybil, Oct 2012)

I am 35 male. 5'11", 160lbs. i eat healthy except i drink 2-3 energy drinks a day. i never work
out. my resting heart rate is 55. (from peeclox, Oct 2012)

my rest hr is around 70 ihad disc surg on L4 and L5 with lifting and walking and other excercise
it went as high as 95 what am i doing wrong? (from c piatt, Oct 2012)

I am a 60 year old female.  My resting heart rate is 48-50.  I jog and walk every day for about 5
miles.  I was a distance runner when I was younger, and back then my resting heart rate was in
the  low 30's.  I'm wondering if youthful fitness might have a long term effect on a person's
heart fitness. (from Susan, Oct 2012)

my resting heart rate used to be horrible; (~90-100 and i'm a male under 18 years). its only
been about a month since i started working out and running (workout about 50-60 minutes a
day 3 days/week and run everyday (ranging from 3 to 8 km) and now my resting heart rate is
~60 BPM. so if you're out of shape, don't be discouraged, you can easily improve your body, just
takes a small amount of effort 9from your average joe, Oct 2012)

I am a 32 year old male. I have a resting heart rate of 60 however I weigh 340lbs. I work out
4-5 times a week. I do cardio (cycling or elliptical for 20-40 minutes or I swim a mile in 40-50
minutes 2-3 times a week) and lift weights 3 times a week. I'm a fairly fit fat guy I guess ;-).
Does that sound normal to any doctors or fitness pros reading this? Can you be in good
cardiovascular condition while being severely overweight? (from Matt, Oct 2012)

I am a 19 year old female and my resting heart rate is around 32 bpm.  I know that this is low
but I row every day and lifft weights three days a week.  I plan on going on going to the
Olympics one day, so taking that into consideration, is my heart rate normal? (from Katie, oct

I'm 18 my rate is 79 bpm should i be worried its below average and for a younge person it
shouldnt be, mind u i am recovering from a fever and have majour anxiety if that could effect it
for my resting heart anyway but i am 11.5 stone. (from Ren, Oct 2012)

I am a fit 27 year old guy. My average heart rate is 50 bpm and I'm proud of it. I smoked some
stuff some days ago and it went up to 110!! (while at rest) It's hard for me to get it to beat
quickly, so I got scared. Went to the doctored, got checked (and complimented for such a great
condition). I did see my life go through my eyes because I felt like dying (bad trip huh). The only
thing I can say is: For those in a good condition CONGRATS!!! KEEP IT UP!!! For those in an
average-poor condition: Dudes, it's never too late for getting fit. Be moderate but consistent, go
at your own rythm, and do some cardio workout at least 3 times a week (40 mins routines). This
might give you some more days with the ones you love :) (from Roger, Sept 2012)

Am 49 years old woman 3 stone over weight cycle hills at least once a week, spin 2/3 times and
swim 2/3 times a week and try to run twice a week ( not fast mind but 3-4 miles each session)
My heart rate is 56. (from Maggie T, Sept 2012)

Well just to let you know, a slow heart rate not all ways a sign of fitness. It could be something
wrong with the heart. To find out if your heart is as slow and strong as top sport person. To find
out you should try your best sport in full and see if your result is as good or as close to the top
sport people level. If you are than your slow HB is as result of your fitness or if you are miles
away and out of steam than you should get your heart seen by a Dr. Good luck. (from ki, Sept

I'm a 29 year old female in excellent shape and have 4 children and i have high bp my resting
heart rate is 112 at times, I'm light headed a lot, dizzy and find it hard to breath this has been
going on off and on for months and lasting weeks at a time,i seen a doc but nothing is ever done
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr what should i do? (from kim, Sept 2012)

I am 19, and my hearth beat is 59 at the moment, and i got to say i am pretty happy with it. Also
i am looking forward to reduce it to 50 at least, since i am a cyclist.

I box 3 times a week run and have a good slim physique, seem to be one of the fittest in the gym
and my rest rate is 70bpm!!!!??!? surely i cant be average? (from cc, Sept 2012)

I am 53 years old and have rest heart rate of 53. I cycle everywhere, When I was 38, my rest
heart rate was  38. I didn't measure it in between. Makes me wonder does it go up with age. Will
I/ have a rest heart rate of 80, if I live that long. Hope not!! (from chrissie, Sept 2012)

I'm a 34 year old female. I do interval training and vary my workouts, doing running, biking,
swimming, weights, and working out at the gym 5 days a week. My resting heartbeat is 60.
Sweet! (from Anne, Sept 2012)

26 yr. old female with 80bpm resting. 6' 150lbs with a desk job and I don't work out unless you
count some random yoga sessions and jump roping here and there. I had an anxiety attack a
few years ago while I was walking when I was 6' 135lbs (before I got pregnant with my
daughter) and now any sort of exercise scares me into thinking I'm going to have another
attack. My heart rate was 180bpm and I could have sworn I was dying; not fun! I need to get
back into a mild workout routine. (from Crystal, Sept 2012)

Hi I'm a 24 year old male and my resting heart rate is 0 am i dead? (from Jamie, Sept 2012)

I'm a 25 year old male with resting heart rate of 45bpm never really done exercise and don't
work. All I do is walk to my car lol it never goes above 50 I don't eat healthy but I have never
had 1 thing wrong with me since birth not even colds. Any1 else like this? (from dan, Sept 2012)

My resting heart rate is 49,  I'm a 36 yr old female 5'9" tall. I exercise at least one hour every
day,I try to take Sundays off but just can't sit still. I do cardio, strength, and flexibility training.
My resting rate is very low and does worry me at times as I have slot of dizzy spells, I've been to
the hospital and had all the tests, and they say I'm normal, but it still concerns me. (from Carla
Riley, Sept 2012)

Wow I'm very athletic. Not even 18 yet. My resting heart rate is 35. (from Anthony, Sept 2012)

Male, 25. I've always had a resting heart rate around 58-62 bpm. After 2.5 months of regular
exercise, it is now at 48bpm. Pretty encouraging statistic to know your heart is that much
stronger, and your hard work is ... working. (from Andrew, Sept 2012)

I'm a 37 year old male.  My resting heart rate is like 20, I measured it.  When I stair-dive it goes
way up to like 500 or something.  The doctors are worried.  Should I be worried too?

I love that I'm in the athlete bracket with a resting heart rate of 47bpm at 41 years old. I've
smoked for over 20 years and I drink a lot more than I should do. Saying that though I am slim
and eat healthily to try and balance it out. I also exercise hard at least every other day and have
run over 10 half marathons and have run the London marathon. I have to laugh when the die
hard anti smokers tell me how bad smoking is and how I should give up. I soon shut them up
though when I ask them how many marathons they've completed lol (from Michelle, 3 Sept

To Michelle- proud smoker and drinker of 20 years at 41. Maybe you are lucky enough to
have a low resting heart rate, it is partly genetic. However, suggesting that smoking and
drinking effects can be canceled out by exercise and healthy eating is rubbish. It improves
your health, but can never cancel out the effects entirely. Besides with 20 years of smoking
and drinking you really have nothing to compare to. What you're saying is the same as saying
I steal but also give to charity so it's ok. Two separate issues. And at 41- you really should
know better than to be proud of it. I can certainly understand it being difficult to quit, but
stop showing off like you're some sort of medical miracle. (from Maria, Nov 2012)

I'm a 20 year old female, decent amount of exercise from walking at work, 5'4 120lbs. I counted
my heart beat and while resting, been laying down watching a movie for roughly an hour, and I
got a 106. I'm a guessing that isn't so good ... Anyone feel like shedding some light on this?
(from Erin, 2 Sept 2012)

I am a 25 year old female my resting heart rate is running at 210bpm right now. my head hurts
and I am short of breath. what is going on with me? (from Donna, 1 Sept 2012)

My resting pulse is 49-55, depending on rest and training. I do intervals on my bicycle raising
my pulse from 120-150.  Over a month, I increased from 20 Right pedal strokes to 50, maxing
my HR at 156.   Yesterday I pushed myself at sustained 150 for 30+  minutes and felt okay, and
had my fastest bicycle ride for 1 hr. I ride my bicycle 4 hrs/wk. I also train in Krav Maga 2-3 hrs
per week. I'm 68, 6',203lbs.  BP and RHR goes down with proper nutrition, exercise, rest, and
recovery. So, I push it, rest it and measure it! (from Fredz, Aug 2012)

The first comment on this site dealt with a woman who had what was diagnosed as an "athletic
heart" in spite of her obesity. New research has shown, however, that it is normal for obese men
and women to display what is, in actuality, essentially non reactive hearts. The study also found
that people whose hearts reacted more to external stresses tended to remain trim over the
years. My point is that a low and unresponsive heart rate is not license to remain happily
overweight. There is simply no such thing as "healthily obese/overweight". Quote from Carroll et
al (2008): "Our analyses suggest that it is low, not high, HR reactivity that is related to adiposity.
Low HR reactivity, probably by reflecting generally blunted sympathetic nervous system
reactions to challenge, may be a risk marker for developing obesity (Carroll D, Phillips AC, Der G,
Hunt K, Benzeval M. Body Mass Index, Abdominal Adiposity, Obesity, and Cardiovascular
Reactions to Psychological Stress in a Large Community Sample. Psychosomatic Medicine

WOW )'m a 21 year old female, have been sitting in bed watching tv so am at complete rest yet
my heart rate which a measured three times just to make sure was 98, 98 and 99. Is that really
as bad as you guys are all saying cause i didn't think it was anything to be worried about till i
read this. I am about 65kgs and about 156cm tall. (from Cristina, Aug 2012)

I run every other day and every third day I do a 5k. During the off days I lift weights or cycle or
basketball. At work, I walk about 12 miles constantly moving. My resting heart rate is 59. (from
The One, Aug 2012)

I am 39 years old and considered obese (and have been most of my life).  I have a resting heart
rate of 42-50 bpm.  Because I am large, my doctor ordered me to go to a cardiologist.  The
cardiologist did an echo and stress test.  He also put me on a 21 day holter and event monitor
(24 hour EKG pretty much).  We found that my stress test was rated as excellent-Athlete, my
echo came back as healthy with no problems, scarring, or issues and my holter came back as
excellent-athlete.  They found my resting heart rate asleep got down to 30 bpm at night -- this
caused alarm on the first night as the monitoring service called me and asked if I was okay in
the middle of the night (the doctor had to call and tell them that was normal for me).  My
cardiologist basically said with my weight and age he was very surprised that I have a "heart of
an athlete."  So, in my opinion, weight doesn't have a straight correlation to how healthy a heart
is -- I believe genetics plays a HUGE part in how healthy a heart is -- however, I believe exercise
and diet can help heart health a little as well.  But, genetics is the over all factor.  That is why
you hear about athletes dying of heart attacks and obese people living to be 100.  When it's
your time to go ... it's your time.  Period. (from Markus, Aug 2012)

that 39 year old guy who was considered obese most of his life and has an athletes heart is
talking crap! Before i started to train again, i was 15.5st and fat and had a high rhr. Now I'm
12.5st, fit, and have an rhr of 42-49 bpm. The harder you train and the better your diet, the
healthier you are. end of. Genetics play a part, but only with drive and enthusiasm to train,
they are not the deciding factor! (from gareth, Aug 2012)

)'m female and according to the chart my heart is excellent. )'m 18 years old. Height 5 foot 7

This is great. I was a tad worried that my heart rate had dropped to 60 bpm at rest, since I have
been fairly inactive till I recently restarted gym.  I used to do a bit of running (marathon's, halfs,
etc) but was surprised to get so fit so quickly. My Resting heart rate dropped from 84 to 62 in
about 4 weeks! But it seems from the comments that this is not so low, and as I suffer from no ill
effects, apart from my blood pressure also dropping, from 150/100 (without meds - meds kept
it at 125/80) to 125/75, so that I no longer need to take HBP medication (but still need to have
oat porridge instead, which I only discovered by accident when I ran out of meds 1 week after
starting a low insulin diet that made me eat porridge) (from Jim, Aug 2012)

I am a 63 year old over weight woman and my resting heart is 56. Pretty proud of that. Started

like a chimney and drink like a fish. On the flip side, I eat better than anyone i know and try to
exercise about 3-5 hours a week. I guess this is my attempt to "balance" . I'd like to start doing
morning cardio to assist in combating the little beer belly that is trying to push through, so i
bought a heart rate monitor. On a "bad" night, I'll go through 20-30 smokes and 2 bottles of red
wine in a couple of hours. I am trying to stop smoking and cut down on the drinking, but was
pleasantly surprised at my apparent athleticism :) (from Rob, Aug 2012)

I am 54 years old and weighed 230 Kgs in April and have been dieting on about 1200 kcals per
day, I am 191 Kgs today.  I have been taking my BP and at rest HR for a month now, and my HR
is always between 52 and 58, so from the chart I see that there is an athlete inside me just
trying to get out!  My BP was 142/83, which is the top end of ok for my age. You need to be very
careful to draw any conclusion from these charts! (from Mike Renals, 13 Aug 2012)

For many years my heart beat rate is below 50 or as low as below 40 when I am resting.
I am perfectly healthy and above 80 years old. Do you consider this rate better than excellent?
(from Sowdas, 6 Aug 2012)

)'m not sure how accurate this chart is because I've heard other sources that said you should
consult a physician if your resting heart rate is under 60 BPM (or over 100BPM). This website
would have one believing that lower is ALWAYS better. (from Rosie, 3 Aug 2012)

Relax people, mind that heart! the chart is only supposed to be a guideline. Mine is 44 bpm
and I can barely run 4km, or do a single pushup. It's genetic as my mother is the exact same.
Most of the repliers are not the norm but for each person replying there is probably about
100+ others that are falling into the "correct" slot.  Just cos you're not the norm does not
mean that there is anything wrong ... and the internet is NOT the place to get diagnosed if
there is! (from Sue, July 2012)

beer.. when i started rehab after light work outs my heart rate sat down was 80 bpm.. now 14
month down the line with my fitness getting better my resting heart beat is 60 to 65 beats per
min 60 beats being the lowest.. is that ok i feel ok and everyone says i look well I'm 62 years old.

athlete level person weigh 83kg at 181 cm (from ken, July 2012)

to the 42 year old man, heart rates as high as 162 to 193 when doing activity, even strenuous
is NOT good or healthy!!! I would consult your doctor (from just a girl, Aug 2012)

Does anyone ever reply to all these questions? Why don't they show us the answers so that
the questions aren't repeated over and over? (from mark, July 2012) - reply: as stated above,
If you have any concerns about the functioning of your heart, you should consult a doctor who
can examine you personally and give their expert opinion. Don't rely on comments and feedback
here as medical advice.

According to your fitness/pulse rate chart i must be a super fit 20 year old or better because my
resting pulse is typically 30-32.In fact I took it twice this morning and it was 25.I'm 63 years old
and I do a lot of fitness work but not enough to justify my low heart rate. I have been checked
out with a 24 hour heart monitor and although the experts were a bit worried they said as long
as )'m feeling OK I should be alright. I do get dizzy nearly every time I get up (my blood
pressure is usually around 105/50) I haven't fainted yet. The other thing I notice that might be
connected, is if when I'm swimming training it takes me 10 times longer than anybody else to
get warm up, until I have I feel as )'m going to pass out or even die, the feeling is that bad. It's
been like that as long as I can remember. (from Pete, July 30 2012)

I agree with some of the others that the chart needs some adjusting. I am 46 years old, 5-9, 165
pounds, run 30-40 miles a week, and have a resting heart rate of 36. (from Paul, July 2012)

)'m male, 42, weigh 92kg's and am 5'8", non smoker, non drinker, gym train 3 times a week for
an hour doing a variety of exercises and weights including crossfit workouts, rugby train once a
week and play now and again. I cycle when I can, but rare past few weeks because of weather.
My diet isn't the best, however, I try to eat a good balance of carbs and protein throughout the
day, but often fall off that wagon. Woke up in the middle of the night last night and thought it a
good time to test my resting HR ... 48bpm. And yet, )'m still single! haha. (from Paul S, July

)'m 33, )'m a drummer in a band, drummers have been classed by many sports scientists as the

Hi )'m 28 year old male, a Muay Thai fighter and because of my training I have devolved a love
for long distance running 8-10k a day. I have a resting heart rate of 35 and no higher then 41,

 want to see if there are similar results with other athletes. Train hard live healthy and love life;)

Hi. )'m 33yo and have measured my resting heart rate at 50 every single time, give or take a few.

My resting heart rate is 66 BPM that's after lying on a bed for 10 mins. I go gym and also do
Krav Maga "contact combat" during which time my heart rate on max goes up to 359 BPM, when
my heart rate is at this pace I see things in slow motion, with clarity.  Once I stop exercising my
heart rate returns to normal within seconds.  What should I do, is this normal? (from Stu V, July

No, no it is not normal to have a heart rate of 359. You should see someone about that, like
that's 911 stuff. (from John, July 2012)

Krav maga 359 beats per min LOL, I am a bit rusty but I think that's excessively tachycardic
and I believe you are complete  full of it. What is your O2 saturation level? I am a powerlifter
and I have been long distance running for about 2 years .. I once did a VO 2max test .. Look it up
.. And I scored 72 ml/kg/min which is very high .. Average healthy males are in the mid to
late 30's.. My resting heart rate varies between low to mid 50's .. There is fiction and there is
believable fiction .. By the way Bruce lee is dead (from Skeptix, 1 Sept 2012)

I am 32 years old and have a heart rate of 47 any time i go to the doctor they ask if I'm a runner.
I'm not . i am 5 11 and 145lbs and have been under much stress (from shaun, 15 July 2012)

Okay )'m 16 and I am in sports but my resting heart rate is 120 ... Is that awful? My doctor is
concerned but reading everything here makes it seem like )'m dying, haha. I weigh 110 lbs. I
don't run everyday but I have sports practices Tuesday-Thursday so it's not like I'm not active ...

I am a 31 year old male with a resting heart beat of 81, i have lost my fitness after leaving the
army through injury. how can i lower this with minimal spinal impact ? (from matt bunney, July
For the gentleman who was injured in the army, sorry I don't know how to respond to your
comment directly, so hopefully you'll see this as your reply. A great way to regain your fitness
without putting your spine in danger is to do core exercises. Not only are they safe on the
spine, but they also stabilize it. This is, of course, assuming you are still relatively physical
functional (I.e. not paralyzed) (from Leah, Dr. of chiropractic, Aug 2012)

My Heart Rate is off the scale. Help me. (from Siddy, July 2012)
