My resting heart rate is 50 bpm
 
According to Fitbit. It's the lowest it's been since I got my watch over two years ago. A chart on the British Heart Foundation website suggests I have the heart of a honed athlete. However, I'm 40 years old, 5ft 10 and 13 and a half stone - one and a half stone heavier than my ideal weight.

I started dieting on New Years Day when my RHR was 67 bpm. I've cut out the crap and am eating three square meals each day. It shouldn't have dropped that low so quickly though, should it?

You could try take your heart rate yourself to see what it is.

I had my doctor check mine last year because it was down to 52/53 per minute - she said it was nothing to worry about, blood pressure was normal. I run a bit, Iím pretty active mind.

My fitbit says 52. I've just done a manual check and it's actually closer to 64. Wouldn't worry about it.

"A chart on the British Heart Foundation website suggests I have the heart of a honed athlete"

I wouldn't listen to that, 'Big Mig' had a resting heart rate of 28 bpm ... incredibly low but many pro cyclists are in the 30's and early 40's.

I'm pretty sure mine was 47 when last tested but 50 is still good. I know people (an ex employee of mine) who's was into the 80's ... lived on Monster energy though which may have explained things ...

50 BPM Is fine. Itís on the low side of fine but nothing to worry about. I would suggest itís more likely the 67 on New Yearís Day was more the anomaly, probably due to lack of exercise and excessive food and drink over the Christmas period?

So mine at 42 is low? It was low 30s when I was running 100 miles per week.

Yes, 42 is low. Low 30s is frighteningly so

Like bear66 mine is in the 40s now, but used to be mid 30s when I was fit.

Mines also 42 and I'm overweight. Although I'm also pretty fit, exercise most days.

It's been that for as long as I've kept track of it, which is over 10 years now.

I was down at low 40ís when I was in good running condition July/August last year. Iím back up to 50ish now.

How alcohol effects the resting hr is quite drastic

My heart rate is 49 and when I looked down at my 6 pack and toned gymed body I decided to go to the Drs for being so perfect [:D]

Actually, it is amazing how rates vary in a group of ageing blokes who cycle together. It is obvious some people have a large pump in their chest with big arteries and veins whereas the opposite applies. Some cyclists I know 50+ go over 210 bpm which defies the max heart rate calculation

I'm sure I read somewhere that Bjorn Borg had an exceptionally slow heart beat. Something like once a week I think.

Low is ok. Much below 35 and you are heading into Bradychardia territory. I coach one athlete who needed a monitor put into his chest to see what his heart was ding. At night it was dropping as low as 15 bpm. They told him to get unfit quickly. He is fine now though, but gets dizzy spells. Arhythmia is priobably more troublesome.

HRV is a better measure for most, especially if training.

I consistently have low heart rate - around 50.
I cycle and keep fit.
Used to have high blood pressure but, cutting out cheese has sorted that.
Currently have the holy trinity - low heart rate, good blood pressure and low cholesterol.
I'm more gorgeous than George Friend too [?]

Cheese is worth dying early for, though.

Doesn't it get slower as you get older?

(I'm not suggesting two weeks would make a big difference...just in general I mean)

I've always assumed, and I think with some level of accuracy, that fitness trackers have a more accurate measure of your RHR because they capture your lowest heart rate during the day, when you are genuinely rested.

You yourself choosing to measure it when you're sat at your desk, tensely holding a stopwatch after you've just got off the phone to your d1ckhead boss isn't likely to be accurate, though obviously its not bad as a rough guide of general fitness.

To the OP, my RHR is the same, am 45, 5í10, and 14 stone. I also get low heart rate notifications (Sub 40) nearly every night. My RHR goes back to normal only if Iím eating :)
Went to see Dr, did an ECG, found nothing wrong. Asked me if my wife noticed I stopped breathing when asleep, or if I had dizzy spells. Neither. So itís just the norm for me

"I also get low heart rate notifications (Sub 40) nearly every night"

That basically is your resting heart rate. Taking it during the day won't be a true resting heart rate.

If you wake up halfway through the night, (in a relaxed way, not a startled way) then that is a decent time to measure your resting heart rate.
