    Normal resting range is defined as 60 - 100 bpm, unless you're an active athletic type. Like you, @Mikie, etc.

    My resting pulse is usually around 56-62 which for me is phenomenal.

    I guess I was more curious if 64 BPM is normal while I'm working. I don't have a desk job you know. ;)

    With as much as you ride, 64 is what some people wish they could have resting. You are above normal, beast mode :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    This happens all the time to me... always has (age 36 currently). I have stupid low blood pressure and again, always have. This definitely happens to me more when i go from laying to standing but can also happen if i go from sitting to standing or say, tying my shoes to standing.

    I now just give it about 10 seconds before I get up and that helps. Very unnerving when it happens for sure. I've been to the doctor for it several times and they say I'm extremely healthy and not to worry about it.
