    I had to go get my HRM on to see. Sitting on the couch quietly, it's down to 41.

    LOL - I had surgery in November and the monitors kept going off because my hr was lower than their machines liked. The nurse said I had the hr of an athlete. I'm no athlete but I have been working my butt off :)

    As long as you don't have Afib, and your body can handle it, you should be OK. My husband always had a very low HR but it started to go way to low and an ECG determined that he was on Afib all the time. He dipped to the 30s, ended in the ER, and three days later he was the proud owner of a pacemaker.

    The cardiologist said that having a constant low HR is not necessarily a sign of fitness, specially as we age. Genetics also seems to have a saying in how low our heart beats in the resting stage with or without exercise.

    Mid to low 50s, usually, if I'm completely relaxed.

    And low heart rate can be good or bad depending on why it's low. If you have a conduction block in your heart, a low heart rate is bad. If you have done a lot of cardiovascular exercise and have a low heart rate because you have a very strong heart with a high stroke volume, it's good.

    ^ Agree. (swim/bike/run workouts, 9-12hrs per week, led to my low HR.)

    I think 60ish is the preferred resting heart rate.

    Mine is due to all the exercise I do. It has come down a lot since I committed to the exercise and lost weight.
