Tech Mech? Me thinks..



I was looking at HR stuff and came across this info http://www.topendsports.com/testing/heart-rate-resting-chart.htm now this got me curious about how true it is..

According to this I am an athlete if I concentrate for a few minutes I can keep my Heart Rate (HR) under 54 .. (I am 34 years old)

So is this true? am I an athlete? Am I?

No seriously would like to hear what others have to say and compare so I can have a better idea of what this chart really means..

Thanks everyone for any info you can share and hope this little post helps others to prevent any possible heart attacks while trying to climb that little bump in the route of your commute as fast as you can in your suit on your way to work with a lap top in one hand and the lunch box in the other one... Thanks...!
