Re: Resting Heart Rate as an Indicator of Health
Hey, I agree with Pratt.
And really, don't compare yourself to endurance athletes because depending on they're endurance sport of choice I would say they aren't fit. I have the same deal as you, I'm 6'2, 180lbs, not as strong as you but still pretty fit and my RHR is usually 60-70 depending on time of day. I never really dip below 60. I asked my physiology prof at uni about it and he just said it comes down to genetics and training style. Mostly genetics.
And Katherines right as well. I mean, we actually have muscle mass. It makes a difference because it all takes upkeep.
