    Brag about your resting heartrate here

    Just went to donate blood yesterday and before you donate they take temp/bp/hr, and i was surprised to see that my ticker clocked in at 49bpm. Looks like laying off the caffeine and sodium and getting in a lot more exercise is a good thing for the heart.

    Anyone else feeling good about cardio health and feel like bragging?

    Recently had blood work done. The tech was impressed that my resting rate was 56. I feel pretty good about that.

    Well - I just took it myself - 32 for 30 secs..so 64, but I am a good 50-60 pounds from my goal weight and have been working out steadily for about 4 months...so hopefully I will see y'all at 48 before you know it.

    Same here on the coffee and resting HR @ 60 now. Before I started cycling 9 months ago I was 80-90 @ rest.

    48-62 range, depending on how much caffeine the day before.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    My blood pressure is low enough (high 70s over 50ish) that the person taking it often thinks their sphygmomanometer is broken. My resting heart rate is nothing to get excited about, though at about 72ish.

    79 here, but I am still a bit revved up from my ride today, and also just finished grilling dinner and such. Just got a chance to sit down and eat and everything now.

    Sure, and who cares how much weight you've lost, there's always Tom Stormcrowe who's lost more

    But if you've worked hard on the bike to lose weight and get into a better overall condition, this is one of the things that drastically improves, and it's something to take pride in.
