    Unless you're symptomatic and/or your ECG is abnormal beyond sinus bradycardia, no.

    bradycardia is fairly normal in athletes. The <60bpm metric we usually think of really only applies for sedentary people. Think of it the same way BMI doesn't tell you much in athletes.

    i used to be insanely fat my whole life (170kg+) lost the weight, crash diet and 12-20k steps a day, started running once i felt like i didnt crush my knees with my own weight (~110kg), down to 80kg.
    one day randomly started measuring my resting HR with the camera from my phone, it said 50 hr bpm, thought it was bugged, whatever. stopped all the cardio gayging (only did 8-12k steps and weightlifting), bulked up to 90kg in around 2 years.
    got a smartwatch in that time, resting hr in the low 40s, goes sub 40 during the night. told my dcotor, he sent me to a heart doctor. got one of the those 24h ecg, heart doctor said nothing abnormal.
    feel cold 247, need a ton of time to "get going"/warmed up. even in the summer, 30°C heat, i sit for 30 min at my pc, feel cold, body falling asleep, winters are the worst for me as it feels like im freezing to death 247 DESPITE bulking, gaining weight
    i also have low bp
    doctor says i shouldnt be worried and that im just in shape when i stopped running regularly and gaining weight (even though some of it is muscle) and a bmi >25.
    while i would say im somewhat fit, im nowhere near fit enough for this low of a resting HR and it feels horrible for reasons mentioned above
    im 30 btw

      I'd do an exercise tolerance test with ECG. Are you on any medication? Beta-blockers can do this.

        What exactly is the problem here?

          Nothing necessarily, I love propranolol, it literally stops beta behavior just like it says on the tin.

        no im not on any medication. did an exercise tolerance test at the heart doctor before i got the 24h ecg, nothing abnormal

        You should probably get your thyroid checked, some of these are actual potential symptoms of hypothyroidism. Your doc isn't immediately going to that because 30/M is a pretty unusual age for it. Besides that there's not much to do, medications can slow down HR but the only way to safetly speed it up for the long term is a pacer.

        i did get my thyroid checked, theres a history of hypothyroidism in my family but my thyroid seems to be working completely normal (to my surprise)

        He may already have checked it btw, check your patient portal for Free t3, free T4 or TSH in your lab results.

    Nah. It'll just naturally go back up when you get older and you undoubtedly do unhealthy shit to yourself over the course of a lifetime.

    if you're a rooner or bicyclist it's fairly normal to have a resting heart rate in the 40s

      >54
      Not terrible, especially if you have a respiratory sinus arrhythmia (heart slows on exhaling) and you're using the lowest readings. Athletic bradycardia shouldn't be symptomatic, though. Get bloods, a Holter monitor (your GP can lend you one 4-free), and ideally do an exercise tolerance test.

    My lowest heart rate ever was 28. My average waking and driving rhr was 32. Now that i am no longer a runner it is around 36-38. My lowest was in HS during my junior year, i didnt consume caffeine and I focused on negative splitting all my workouts on the track. If you want to lower i suggest intervals at a controlled easy pace, with the first one being the slowest and the last one being the fastest. Preferably in the 400-600 m range x 6-10 reps
