My resting heart rate is usually 55-65. It says on the internet that this could be a sign of Bradycardia. I am not overly concerned about this, I just wondered if a low resting heart rate could indicate fitness as well as a heart problem?

I excercise for about 1-2 hours every day, and complete a 14 mile run once a week currently. (with shorter runs and bike rides in between)

My BMI is 24.5 and falling.

Profession cyclists like Lance Armstrong have resting heart rates in the 30's. My husband is pretty into his fitness and his heartrate is about 50 at rest. He is 6ft 3 and 14 stone.

I wish I had enough energy to get a resting heart rate like yours!

Bradycardia is really just a descriptive term, not a diagnosis, it just means a slow heart beat. If you've been exercising for a while and are in very good shape, that may be normal for you, if so, then great. If you're not getting symptomatic (dizzy, short of breath, light headed, fainting spells, etc.) with it, then you're most likely fine, I wouldn't worry excessively about it unless it causes problems

bradycardia is a slow heart rate.

your heart rate is perfectly normal for a fit and healthy adult.

bradycardia is when your heart rate drops below the level that is normal for yourself.................... usually below 50.

athletes heart rates usually run at a cool 30-40 beats per minute, because they are so fit.

no need to worry......my advice to you? Dont try to look for problems on the internet, it could convince you that you have a number of things that you dont. Its a dangerous thing to be doing. If you feel fit and well dont worry, if you experience symptoms, see a doc. Dont use the internet.

All the best.

yes people who exercise alot like yourself would usually have a heart rate of between 50 and 60. That is very normal. if you know how to check your pulse, there is no harm keeping an eye on it from time to time. Don't worry however, your low heart rate is totally normal for someone who exercises that much.

People who exercise often have a heart beat below 60 (the official level for braycardia) it is a sign of fitness. I would say you come into the fit catergory.
Good work on the BMI...mine is a lot higher than yours and also falling :D

Bradycardia, as applied in 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]. Trained athletes tend to have slow resting heart rates, and resting bradycardia in athletes should not be considered abnormal if the individual has no symptoms 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.

This cardiac arrhythmia can be underlied by several causes, which are best divided into cardiac and non-cardiac causes. Non-cardiac causes are usually secondary, and can involve drug use or abuse; metabolic or endocrine issues, especially in the thyroid; an electrolyte imbalance; neurologic factors; autonomic reflexes; situational factors such as prolonged bed rest; and autoimmunity. Cardiac causes include acute or chronic ischemic heart disease, vascular heart disease, valvular heart disease, or degenerative primary electrical disease. Ultimately, the causes act by three mechanisms: depressed automaticity of the heart, conduction block, or escape pacemakers and rhythms.

your resting heart rate it totally normal. you are not classed as bradycardic untill you heart rate falls under 48bpm. fitness is the prime factor in having a lower heart rate. NOTHING to worry about i promise you
