    Last time I checked BP was 128/74 and pulse runs about 72 while sitting. Lowest my resting pulse even in my racing days was 60, guess I have the hi-revving little Japanese engine instead of a big Detroit V-8.

    110/65, 50.

    I'm not on BP or other meds that might affect BP or pulse.

    Hmmmm


    136/72

    HR 68

    After a ride of an hour, or more, my BP usually drops to around 116/65

    usually around 140/90 with a resting pulse of 70.

    Either we are getting a biased sample in the responses, or this group has an amazingly well-controlled BP for 50+ folks.

    WOW!

    115/65 My diastolic is naturally low but I need some intervention from Big Pharma to get that systolic number.

    Resting pulse this a.m was 45 -- mine has always been low.

    Earlier in the year I was 170/90 and a bit of concern for the Doc. I was feeling OK. She put me on a BB that I told her I would try it but I came off it after a week. Last month it was 110 /80 and she was happy so she took me off the BB that I had stopped taking months ago.

    Only difference was a bit more riding and better diet.

    Resting HR and I have a problem. Sitting in the evening and I can get it to high 60's- but as soon as I move about and it is 80.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Generally runs 90s to low 100s/60 to 70. I'm short, so my blood has less hydraulic head, maybe? <grin> Sitting pulse is 58, a little higher than usual because I'm recovering from an MTB crash last month that cut my running and cycling mileage way down. It's normally in the low 50s bpm. 53 y.o. male.

    Analysis shows that 14 of the 19 folks who have systolic pressure less than 120 also have a sitting heart rate of less than 60. And, of course, vice versa, as there are 19 members in each group at this time.

    120/70, 43BPM if I sit still long enough

    Not bad for a reformed hypertensive with a family history of elevated BPs. (My grandmother's highest reading ever was 260/200, but she almost made it to 95, anyway.) I owe it all to cycling, jogging, and a fat- and sodium-restricted diet.

    Using the new real cuff unit I got recently. This was the third measurement. The first two had lower systolic, higher Diastolic and slightly higher pulse.

    Everyone with a resting pulse under 60 has a

    MEDICAL CONDITION!

    Bradycardia
















































    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Bradycardia ICD-10 R00.1
    ICD-9 427.81, 659.7, 785.9, 779.81
    Bradycardia, as applied to adult medicine, is defined as a resting heart rate of under 60 beats per minute, though it is seldom symptomatic until the rate drops below 50 beat/min. [1] [2] Trained athletes or young healthy individuals may also have a slow resting heart rate. Resting bradycardia is often considered normal if the individual has no other symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, chest discomfort, palpitations or shortness of breath associated with it.

    The term relative bradycardia is used to explain a heart rate that, while not technically below 60 beats per minute, is considered too slow for the individual's current medical condition.
