Just tested mine again as its morning which is better going by the above posts but it was the same with the odd 50 although I didnt really sleep last night and was on the PC for quite a while due to insomnia so im not really "rested" Sad

Had a broncoscopy about a month back and when they hooked me up to the pulse & oxygen monitor it freaked out & started bleeping...
My HR sat between 43 & 47bpm for 5 minutes ;D Didn't go above 75 through the whole operation either, which was nice.

Generally speaking my resting is about 50-55, I must've been super chilled that day !!

The correct way to measure you're resting HR (i'm told) is first thing in the morning just after waking up. :B
Theory is that you are properly rested & not just recovering.  This will offer your lowest reading.
You should keep the HRM next to your bed overnight so all you need to do before taking the measurment is place the strap on your chest.  Any other exersion will taint the reading somewhat, but it's all realative of course.
For what it's worth right now sat in front of the PC (which is fairly well rested) I've got 52BPM.  In the mornings as described above I'll usually see 42/43, occassionally slightly lower if I'm really well rested. :o
If my understanding of HRM is correct the real indication of fitness is recovery time - that is how quick your HR drops after extreme exertion.  When you stop at the top of that lungbuster can you see those numbers dropping or do they stay up there? Undecided
The average resting HR is 66-72.  To give you a target Migeul Indurain holds the lowest ever recorded resting HR of 28 BPM!!!!!! 8)

Exactly what i do.  I have an OMRON blood pressure monitor next to my bed and it measures both heart rate and blood pressure as soon as i get out of bed in the mornings, my lowest has been 52BPM, normally resting remains between 52-58BPM.
