Also, heart rate is an indicator of fitness, both globally and individually. For example, comparing normal hearts in a portion of the population, the fittest will usually have a lower heart rate as a result of cardiovascular training. Individually, you can observe your progression by checking your heart rate that must be lower because the heart is now bigger and stronger and needs less effort to pump blood, the result is a lower heartbeat frequency. It's an excellent tool to observe your own fitness. After months of detraining, your resting heart rate might probably increase. On the other hand, if you start with a high heartrate, after a month of cardiovascular training, your heart rate will be eventually lower.
Bro myheart rate is shit, like a little kid, at my lowest ever it was 55, and that was one time at age 16 when I was distance running 45-50 miles per week at an average pace of 6:45 minutes per mile
Now I run like 1 mile per week and can't even run a 20 minute 5k, most likely
