Or is it one of them things that depend on the individual?
Depends on the individual, but a useless metric to decide which of the two are "better".
A better question would be- why does it matter.
a very simple equation (mind you, I mean simple).
Anaerobic work=stronger heart, Aerobic work=more efficient heart. When you combine the two, you get a bigger, stronger heart that requires less bpm due to its ability to move large amounts of oxygenated blood through arteries that have been conditioned for efficiency due to expansion and dilation.
For a quick study on this see :Secretariat (horse) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
i would say deff. long distance runners.
Sprinters use the ATP system. Long distance uses the lactic acid system.
Not sure if im right about long distance, but long distance guys run for loonngg periods of time which helps them with thier BPM.
Like i think that one biker (forgot his name) had a heart rate of like 35-40. crazyy
Long distance. No question about it.
Long distance running uses the aerobic system. Sprinters will use primarily the ATP system, although if you consider 400m or 800m a sprint, then they'd rely a lot on the lactic acid system.
Here is a helpful graph.
to condense low effort high volume workouts such as long distance running build the size of the left chamber of the heart leading to a higher voume of blood pumped per beat and alas a lower resting hr. Sprint work is like mma in that it builds the wall of those chaqmbers increasing power but this limits your ability to stretch that aforementioned chamber, its a balancing act.
This is a really easy to read graph. Thank ya.
I like the quote that says training power can increase endurance, say up to 30%, where training endurance, does little for power.
The answer is long distance runners. /thread
Not so crazy. Full forum of those with that low RHR.
Long distance runners/ ultra marathoners esp.
Long distance runners by a country mile....
Cardiovascular efficiency is not a pre-requisite for good sprinting.
My resting HR is sub 40 (upon wakening, before standing up) and I never do any LSD stuff. I do strength training, CrossFit type conditioning stuff and sprints. I also have low BP 100/60.
I am curious as to whether the high amounts of fish oil that I take thin my blood so much that my heart does not need to beat as hard or as fast to circulate blood.
This article doesn't explain why mine would be so low, but it does state that fish oil lowers RHR:

Miguel Indurain, the Lance Armstrong before Lance Armstrong. From his Wiki:
whoops, was beat to the punch...
I have the worst stamina ever and my resting heart rate is often below 50.
I always thought that means you have a healthier heart, and makes a difference when ur much older?
