Resting Heart Beat depends on age and fitness primarily! anywhere between 60-75 is normal for a male 26-45!

to be honest doing 40 minutes a day isn't really going to reduce your pulse greatly unless your climbing greatly! pulse rates tend only to b low in athletes of endurance discliplines

Whilst maxing the relax to a couple of episodes of Lost recently, my heart-rate dropped to under 50. I was seriously relaxed though. It's around 75 as I'm sat here typing. I have a bad hangover though, so that's probably not helping ;)

DUDE _ "DONT WORRY ABOUT IT" I had a resting heart rate of 44 a minute but even when i was 18 stone i did...I lost 4 stone and spent 10 years getting super fit. still got a resting heart rate of 48 now. The main thing i learned was not my resting heart rate and not even if it shoots up to a 100 if i get up quick , i learned that my maximum heart rate ten years ago was 250 now its 180. Thats the main one i noticed had a significant change for the better.Remember keep checking your heart rate causes stress ad its stress thats the KILLER..

rode home today 15 miles. HR 158-180.

Main reason I use it is I like to check it settles down quickly when the workload decreases

My resting heart rate is around 75bpm...but I'm certainly not so fit as I could be. For me it seems quite high as I've got down to 44bpm in the dim and distant past. I am older now of course.

Many years ago when Miguel Indurain was racing I seem to remember one of the TDF C4 presenter's saying that his resting HR was 28!!! amazing!

While having a look at this thread I also had a look on Wiki about the topic. It seems quite a good source of info
