Resting heart rates by age

A normal adult resting pulse will vary between 60 and 100 beats per minute. The human pulse varies with age, and usually slows as we get older. An adult resting heart rate slower than 60bpm is called bradycardia. Highly trained athlete's heart rates may be as low as the 40's, yet pulses this low are not common. Select your age in the table below to check how your resting pulse compares with others the same age.
