    Well, in that case I haven't had my pulse-rate checked in all of my life.

    Not everyone here can be an elite athlete, I highly doubt it. Elite athlete = you playing professionally or running marathons or anything of the such. The best time to get good BP and heart rate ratings are right after you wake up. You can take an average of readings over a week to get a good picture. An easy way to remember the Systolic/Diastolic is S for super (on top) and D for down, or you can just remember the latter.

    @Darjur, just look at a watch for 15 seconds while counting how many beats you get at your wrist, then multiply by four or you can just count for the whole minute.

    Is this true? I am leaning towards it as well. I am 5'10, 140... no fat on my body, and I am in good shape, and mine right now is almost 75 and I haven't lifted a finger yet today, just woke up. I used to be on the water polo and swim team as a kid so I did a ton of exercise every week as well. That, and my metabolism has always been lightening fast. I could (and have) completely gorge myself to the point of being painfully full, multiple times in a short span, and actually lose weight without even trying.

    As I said earlier, this is quite normal for anyone that is not a complete athlete. Body size is inversly proportional to heart rate as odd as it may sound.

    mines always high even when I was in my 20's. I don't smoke anymore. I do a lot of cardio mixed with weight training. Yesterday during cycle class it shot up to 187 so I slowed down.

    I'm taller than average for a female (5'7") but I weighed 116 lbs this morning. Normally I weigh 117. I suppose I am smaller than a lot of females, but I'm not tiny.

    Wow, you need to lose five inches or gain 20lbs (just kidding).

    On a side note, I can fluctuate over 3lbs in the course of one day, and we are not talking clothes here.

    My pulse rate's pretty slow- blood pressure is EXTREMELY low to the point where sometimes when I walk, I semi-black out and am that close to fainting.

    I think exercise really keeps it low for me. Plus, it's still low whenever I don't. I suppose everyone's body's different. Low is okay I guess!
