Yes: Healthy individuals may have resting pulse of 55-70 and sometimes slightly lower in athletes. During strenuous activity intended for cardiac conditioning, a pulse rate in someone age 20 can be as high as 170 is acceptable.

Yes: Since you are considered an adult- the normal rate can be from 60 to 100- it varies on your weight, degree of exercise and stress level Here is a link with more information http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/fitness/expert-answers/heart-rate/faq-20057979

Absolutely, the: younger you are the more likely your resting heart rate will be in the lower end of normal (60-100 range). The fitter you are the lower your heart rate. For world class athletes it is not uncommon to find heart rate in the 50's or even high 40's. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
