      I believe in you anon, try some healthier food if you don't watch your diet, do a little bit of cardio, walking on its own is a lovey way to spend a day, or even a small part. I believe in you

        21 now. i've got a bit out of shape. used to run 35 mi/week with some cycling and gym. i bet it would be lower if wasn't drinking so much coffee and taking adderall. no alcohol, low stress, more sleep, and losing weight are all good ways to lower RHR.

      42 resting heart rate here, usually the lowest rate is in the morning while fasted, having a low resting heart rate literally makes you feel good and calm... achieved this heart rate mainly from trail running, sprinting uphill and such... heart doctor told me i had an enlarged heart

    OP why do you care? Are you mining data or trying to compare something? If you're within the normal range for you or your specifics, RHR isn't that much important. Depending on your sport you should care about your goals.

        The thing is, it's only vaguely related to fitness. There's a lot of things affecting RHR (caffeine, sleep, nicotine, genetics etc). No serious athlete really cares much about that shit. Runners tend to have low RHR but in the end your pace wins races, not your RHR; otherwise we'd have boomers with bradycardia or some shit winning all the medals.

        Now if it makes you feel good by all means be proud of your below 50 bpm RHR; but at the end of the day? You want to measure your performance (pace, 5pl8 deadlift or whatever it is for you)

      BPM, blood pressure, and cholesterol are all pseudoscience.

      Cholesterol can be explained by three mutations in genes that cause excess cholesterol to be in the body. Simply raise HDL and you're fine.

      BPM means nothing, people with low resting heart rate die often at the same age from cancer instead of heart attack.
      What matters more is how your heart responds during activity, if you have a drastic spike that shows a weak cardio system.
      blood pressure is equally misunderstood by most of the health community.

      They put my dad on blood pressure reducing medications and he started having miniature heart attacks. I forget what they are called, but they are like a double beat or echo some shit like that and it eventually devolved into full blow heart attacks. Took him off the medication, blood pressure went back to normal. All of that shit stopped.
      when it comes to these three, correlation =/= causation.

      Seen 95 year old chain smoking women who never do a day of cardio in their life outlive anyone and everyone.

        The thing about that is that its biased towards the customs and practices of their generation so we can only extrapolate at best.

          I think you misunderstand speed balling isn't natural dude.

          Imagine you have a naturally high resting heart rate, right?
          Now imagine you take a shit ton of artificially ingested arginine and, citrillune, while ingesting half a days worth of salt in one sitting, while ingesting 8 redbulls worth of caffeine, while ingesting a saltshakes worth of carnatine, while lifting enough weight to blow out your anus while at that exact same moment exploding every single vein in your forehead.

          I don't think that's quite the same as a dude who just so happens to have pre-hypertension rates of blood pressure.
          Just because it's wildly exaggerated by doctors doesn't mean you can just put yourself in extreme outlier situations and not expect meme fricking results.
          The average person's body will not explode from being in above average BPM for their entire life.

    29 years old. 47 RHR today. Running 3 days a week now. Started running after my doggo died three years ago. The thing that really slows down my RHR is relaxing (no physical efforts a day or two) and calorie deficit/hunger.

      EXACT
      SAME
      SHIT
      FOR ME AS WELL. call be a big tobacco shill all you want but the problems I had from smoking were MUCH LESS than the problems I got when I switched to vaping.

      >smoking
      >cough, shortness of breath, higher blood pressure, stinky

      >vape
      >much worse shortness of breath, higher blood pressure, HEART RATE EXACTLY LIKE HOW YOU DESCRIBED, harder to get boners, less sexually active, random head aches

      All that shit went when I gave it up. I now only buy a disposable vape when I'm drinking on a night out which is rare but the symptoms won't come back unless I smoke for like a week solid.

      Shit anon, this gives me hope. My resting has been wack for years despite me being VERY physically fit. All tests by doctors said I'm normal but I do vape a lot. Gonna take my "final puffs" now and see if things go normal for me. Wish me luck, hope its easy to quit

    Are heart palpitations a cause for concern? I get one maybe every week, and I find it discomforting, but I've never worried about them. I've been getting them for about 8 years.

      Get it checked out. Its most likely nothing but can never be too careful. I have a stress disorder and this causes me to have one palpitation on average every 5 minutes (sometimes 1 per minute) apperently you should only be worried if you're having 6 per minute but still get it checked
