Is a resting heart rate at night from 55-60 normal? I do exercise at least 5 days a week but I haven't in a month due to injury. I am 28.

Normal for athletes. That rate is usually normal especially for those who are athletic. As long as you have no dizziness or other symptoms and the rate is regular.
Yes. A resting heart rate while resting from 55-60 in a healthy, young adult is normal and not uncommon. As long as you are not experiencing dizziness or fatigue, it should be nothing to worry about. If you are experiencing dizziness or fatigue, see your primary care physician.
Resting heart rate. Resting heart rates vary. In a person who exercises on a regular basis - a heart rate of 50 to 60 while resting or sleeping can be completely normal. You should be concerned if you have signs of a low heart rate - lightheadedness, fatigue or dizziness.
Your nice low. heart rate may be the result of the fact that you are conditioned from regular exercise (even if you haven't exercised in the last month). If you have possible cardiac symptoms get checked.

I have an iron deficiency. My resting heart rate typically seems to be between 82-85bpm. I haven't exercised in over a year due to injury. Normal?

Listen to your body. That is a fairly high resting heart rate. Exercise is essential to health. If you have been taking iron for more than 3 months and you continue to be iron deficient you may be having trouble absorbing iron because of low stomach acid. This can interfere with the absorption of zinc and magnesium as well. These deficiencies can make you much more sensitive to stress and interfere with healing. Read more...

How much exercise and what kind do I need to do to lower my resting heart rate? I walk about an hour a day at least three days a week at about 2.0 MPH

Faster walk. You may need to walk faster than two mph. A good goal is to walk a mile in 15 minutes. Once you can do that your heart will be in better condition and this may decrease your resting heart rate. Check with your medical provider to see if it is safe for you to increase the speed with which you walk. The more often the sooner you see benefits. Read more...

Heart rate. At your age a low heart rate of 99 is a little unusual. Your primary md could start your evaluation with an ekg. I would also consider a non cardiac cause such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. I would also think you can achieve a much higher rate than 120. You didn't mention how hard you were exercising.

Not necessarily. As your heart rate should augment(increase) during exercise. In fact, for a stress test to be considered truly diagnostic it is defined by the you achieving a certain heart rate. If your heart rate doesn't increase either you had non-diagnostic stress test due to suboptimal heart rate levels or have some chronotropic insufficiency - as in an abnormal ability to increase your heart rate.

Variable. Exercise may reduce your heart rate. I advise at least 30 minutes of brisk walking, jogging, biking or swimming at least 4 days a week. How quickly it comes down is variable but you should see results within a few weeks. But there are other possible causes besides lack of exercise, including overactive thyroid, food allergies & stress. It would be wise to see a dr., esp. If exercise doesn't help. Read more...

Is it normal to have a resting heart rate of 56 bpm? I've become more active over the last couple of months. Been going to the gym 5 times a week.

56 bpm. That number is OK before you start your gym work but will be much higher when you finish your training. It will take some time for the heart rate to slow down but that should not affect you. Read more...
Yes. The more you exercise and become fit, the lower your resting heart rate. The opposite is also true: the worse shape you are, the higher the resting heart rate. Keep it up with the exercise!! Read more...
