Your resting heart rate (RHR) is the number of beats per minute (BPM) your heart makes while at rest. Elevated levels can indicate a loss of fitness or that you are sick, fatigued or sleep deprived. Normally, a healthy adult will have an RHR between 60 and 100 BPM. However, some top endurance athletes have been found to have RHRs below 30!
