    Martin Fourcade, a French biathlete, won three consecutive world championships and two Olympic gold medals. He self-reports 25 bpm.

    The official Guinness World Record for the lowest resting heart beat is 27 bpm, held by Martin Brady, 45, of Guernsey. Current record holder Mr Brady took the title from five-time Tour De France winner Miguel Indurain, whose resting pulse got to as low as 28 bpm.

    "Team Sky's tests show that [Chris] Froome's resting heart rate drops as low as 29."

    “I feel pretty damn good. My resting heart rate is 32 beats per minute. I’m in damn good shape. My blood pressure is good, everything is good. I feel great.”

    "Royce's resting heart rate is 35. It's crazy."

    Cody Stamann 36
    “I do a lot of heart rate training,” explained Stamann. “If your heart is recovering fast you’re in good shape. My resting heart rate was 36. It was so low that I had to go through all these crazy heart tests. I had to go see a cardiologist and get an echocardiogram. I had to get all this blood work done to prove there was nothing wrong with me just because I had such a low resting heart rate.”

    Luke Rockhold 36
    "My cardio is off the charts," Rockhold said. "I took my resting heart rate the other day and it was at like 36.5 beats per minute. I feel like I've got the best cardio I've ever had. I can go five rounds easy."
    https://bleacherreport.com/articles...-ronaldo-jacare-souza-and-comback-from-injury
    2011: "I was constantly going against top guys, fresh guys, for five rounds hard, and when we checked my resting heart rate I was constantly in the mid-30’s."

    Tyron Woodley 37


    Mark Munoz 37
    "The most amazing consideration is that his resting heart rate is now at 37 beats per minute, a level of a genetically gifted conditioning freak. Munoz noted he’s been gifted in that for as long as he can remember, since he’s trained hard for wrestling since the age of 13.

    "I’ve also gotten stronger," he said. "Even when I was 260, I was at 48, 49, 50 beats per minute. But my heart rate went down, my cholesterol got better, my adrenal glands got a lot better, my testosterone level is a lot better with the foods I’ve been eating. All together, I’m healthy and fit. They changed my body from the inside out. I’m more energetic. The machine is actually working a lot smoother now."

    Dunno.
    I read that Miguel Indurain's rest pulse was 28bpm. He was a World Champion endurance cyclist, back in the 80s and 90s.

    Huge if true.
    But for real, that would be ridiculously insane, i mean isn't 35 already a bit unhealthy?
    There've been some cyclists who died in their sleep during too low resting heart rates..*

    EDIT: the deaths were due to the blood clotting from the huge amounts of EPO the cyclists took.

    It's easy for Rockhold to have a low resting heart rate, when he has been sleeping in the cage<{yearp}>

    Might I say, TS, I'm impressed by the thoroughness of your research on a very specific topic.

    I have a feeling this thread will reveal that most Sherdoggers have sub 40 resting heart rates, in addition to being 6’4 and 250 pounds.

    Mine's 1.5

    I also have a 12 inch dick so it makes sense that so much blood is stored in my cock instead of being pumped around my heart.

    Joanna's reset time between rounds is about the same as King Mo according to her S&C coach Phil Daru.

    She has posted literally dozens of pages from every fight camp over the past two years with her training stats from the app ATT uses. Maybe you can dig out the actual number from there? I have no idea what to look for on those pages.
