    I took mine this morning. It was 60. Not as bad as I thought. Pretty good considering I'm heavy and out of shape. I could probably be a bad ass again in a matter of a few weeks.

    I know I am necroing so bad right now, but i felt it was more appropriate than opening the exact same topic again.

    The thing I don't get is, I have been doing sports since I was like 7-8 or something (i used to go to those schools where you learn swimming, basketball, tennis etc)
    And i have always been an active person.

    Especially last 6 years. It has been that much since I have started doing martial arts and I have been training at around 4-5 days every week in this period. And since I like pushing myself a little I always trained for long periods, pushing my body,sweating a lot.

    So I always thought I was an active athletic person, but after downloading this heart beat monitor thing on my ipod (at first i thought the software was ****, but later i checked it myself and it was right) i saw that my BPM changes around 70-75.

    I mean, I do it at work, not in bed laying down or something, but still....

    The posts up here show that even the guys that don't train a lot or not so active have BPMs A LOT lower than me.

    well,WTF? Should I see a doctor? or could it be genetic or what?

    If anybody can give me some information about this, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Check it at rest and at exertion of different levels.
    There is a genetic component; some people have "high" resting HR and are still fit.
    I have an unusually low resting HR for my relative fitness at around 50-5 bpm, i was consistently <40 10-15 yrs ago.
    Taking your pulse is a fairly inaccurate way to measure HR imo.

    seeing as this has already been necro'd
    two years ago my resting HR was in the high 80's now it is in the low 60's.
    in those 2 years i've lost 3 1/2 stone and train 3 times a week.
    i now have a sneaking suspision i may live to see my 50th birthday!

    Damn.. Mine's 70. I've got the metabolism of a hummingbird and am almost never truly "at rest," but I still hope to see some improvement here over the next 6 months.
