          bradycardia is an acute symptom not a chronic disease. physically fit people have lower heart rates and still get enough blood. The 60-100 bpm range was made for people who dont work out at all.

            Yeah, Olympian-level runners and cyclists may have resting heart rates between 40 to 60 bpm at rest. However, bradycardia is not used to determine a person's level of physical fitness. Most people, like anti-cardio OP, are not top tier athletes and fall under the general rule of 60 to 100.

                No, I'm saying your heart rate is not an indicator of physical fitness, just like it is not an indicator of impending doom.

                Also, a 53 minute 10k is far above the average person. I bet your 5k averages are below 25 minutes. There are people who couldn't achieve that if they tried.

          Lowered heart rate is normal in athletes. Marathoners frequently have resting heart rates in the 30s. Their organs and Brian’s are still properly oxygenated because the heart just has a larger stroke volume

          If you don't have any negative symptoms then a low resting heart rate just means that your heart is strong enough that it doesn't NEED to beat fast to get blood everywhere it needs to go.

Was it designed to be pushed to it's limits to meet the demands of a timer or the tracking of miles? Was it designed to run through pain unceasingly to satisfy the ego of the runner?

        >hybrid training
        The point of working out is to look good naked and mog in clothes. Running is completely unnecessary for that and often counterproductive as is evidenced by the bodies of typical runners.

        And no, retard, it isn't just because of how they prioritise their training, the act of LDR is a cortisol production accelerant that impairs MPS and places a recovery demand on the CNS more than any squats and deadlifts.

      Running doesn't turn you into a skeleton, just competitive runners are skeletons on purpose because you can't carry excess weight if you hope for 5k times below about 15 minutes. If you can live with topping out at an 18-20 minute 5k then you can have whatever physique you want except for obese or the most extreme bodybuilding.
