Depends: The athelete may have heart rate of 50 or below and be fine. A young patient a rate of 90 and be fine. Heart rates at rest of 100 or more is abnormal and called tachycardia. Pts with heart rates below 60 and symptomatic is abnormal and called bradycardia. But no one size fits all . Medications can also affect rates, coffee, energy drinks etc.
