    Just now I decided to find out what my resting pulse rate is (I've been sitting down a while) it was 47! Is this good or bad?

    Also earlier today before I started Spinning my heart rate was 60 -65 (I was wearing a heart rate monitor). I had been moving around a bit before then.

    Is it good to have a low heart rate or should it be a bit higher?

    47 seems really low.

    47 is hyper low. Anything below 55 starts to cause concerns typically. 60 is extremely good though.

    47 is very low for non-athletes. 60-100 is normal range.

    57 here. It's always been below average.

    Well it depends what your max heart rate is. I tested my resting in winter and it was in the low 50s.

    47 is world class athlete territory.

    I'd be sceptical.

    Also be wary of heart rate monitors, cheap ones are notoriously inaccurate.

    56 here, got it measured on a heart monitor. I've always had a below average heart rate though due to the exercise that I do.

    wtf? TSR seems to have some silly fit people. The normal range is 60-100 yet almost everyone is 50-70?

    Are you sure? I can't imagine you're very fit, no offence.

    I just put my HR monitor on for a minute and it hovered around 68bpm. My heart rate is weird though - I can spend an hour at 170 yet have never seen it above 190.

    im sure, my job is to take pulses everyday think i can take my own...

    and the resting pulse is different for everyone, its not dependant on fitness, its how high it goes during excercise or exertion thats important. When i'm running or on the cross trainer my pulse tends to go up to around 170/180 during on my monitor

    and I am offended thanks

    Alright, I was just asking. I know recovery heart rate's a better measure of fitness, but RHR is a general indicator of health, overweight people generally have higher RHRs because the heart has to work harder. Why are you offended? You've freely admitted that you're overweight and don't often exercise.

    And thanks for the info, but no need to force the fact that you're (not) a nurse down my throat like you seem to feel the need to in so many other threads. I already know.

    Some people simply have a higher/lower resting heart rate that cannot be attributed to any specific cause. Many scientific studies have shown that a resting heart rate really isn’t an effective way of measuring the health of a person, but they do say anything about 90-100 to seek medical advice.

    I do often excercise, 4 times a week, and i was on about my job as a hca...so don't jump to assumptions which you seem to often do

    47 does seem too low. Although you have to remember it's not a fair sample from TSR really, most people who will have done this will be more interested in fitness etc. and those other posts won't bother in the thread.

    Can't remember mine, think it was 56 but then I do alot of exercise. I'm sure if we sampled all the people it'd be a true reflection!
