mine has been down at 36 for the last week. Hopefully this is due to me starting to get fit again

I broke a foot once in a crash but they admitted me as a cardiac patient :shock: :lol: every few minutes I'd set of their alarms. All I wanted was a decent painkiller for my foot.

Haven't checked for a while but I took my pulse while sitting at desk the other day at 48, so I guess I'm getting back towards my typical fit levels.


LOL ! When i tried to giv blood they were worried about me and my health i think i was about 40-42. Didnt matter that i told them i do lots of exercise they did all these extra tests on me and rang differant doctors trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Took ages, i was just trying to do a good thing. I think they consider -56 athlete and -48 theyre just amazed :p

Bradycardia

Trained athletes or young healthy individuals may also have a slow resting heart rate (e.g. professional cyclist Miguel Indurain had a resting heart rate of 28 beats per minute).[2] Resting bradycardia is often considered normal if the individual has no other symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, chest discomfort, palpitations or shortness of breath associated with it.

i have bradycardia. normal resting HR ( sitting down ) is 44 and laying down i have seen it as low as 34 but normally sits around 39-41.
i am 102kg and 190cm tall. very active, had the same thing happen to me when i gave blood the first time.
have had a stress test done and all that jazz, HR went from 184 ( at the max stress level on the tready ) to 97 in 3 mins. cardiologist said i was fine and nothing to worry about.
doc just told me i have bradycardia. i get shortness of breathe sometimes but thats about it.

Lying or sitting mine varies between 43 and 55 bpm. My top end is somewhere around 173. I'm 43.

Well I finally had a check up in relation to my low HR and family history of heart disease.

Sitting there at the docs it was 36BPM (this was midday and I already had a few coffees under the belt). She did say it was rather low and sent me off for an ECG.

ECG results are fine, the fella doing the scan showed me and then explained the graph. There is a slight pause for one phase, but he said that is not an issue. I now need to go back to my GP for confirmation of the results.

So it looks like I just have a naturally low HR which is even lower due to fitness.

I've got both ends of the scale covered.

RHR is 50-ish. Sitting here after a few coffees, it's 53. Properly relaxed it's about 48. I had an unexplained anaphalactic reaction to something last year, and had to sit in hospital for a few hours observation. After the ambos adrenaline shot wore off, I kept setting off the alarm on the HR monitor by dropping under 50 and the nurses kept coming running. Hey, don't mind me, I'm just bored.

At the other end of the scale, I've seen my HR go over 210 on the bike (and stay there for longer than an interference miscalculation blip). Not going to pretend I was comfortable and relaxed at the time, but when I bust a gut and go deeply anaerobic, my heart beats really fast. That was a few years ago - say late 20s. Now I'm getting older, lazier and/or more sensible in my late 30s, I don't often go much over 185. Standard rule-of-thumb %MHR HR zones line up pretty well with perceived effort if I do the calculations based on a MHR of 210-215. So much for 220-age.

I guess my heart is pedaling a racing triple. Wide gear range. It can go fast and slow.

might have been covered earlier in this topic but in actual fact resting HR doesn't actually indicate anything good or bad. if you can push out comfortably during intensive exercise to around 85/90% of your max heart rate, then return it quickly to normal after stopping the exercise, that's more of a gauge of a high fitness level.

When well relaxed I can get it down to the high 40's, but the moment I move a muscle it increases. However if I have been exercising within a few hours before, it will take a while to settle down, heat issue?

What are people's peak heart rates? I tried to measure mine once on an old Polar HR watch/chest strap; then I decided it may not be to accurate, above 200bpm it was jumping in steps of 3, 214, 217, etc etc...
