In brief: If all of your

testing is normal and you have no symptoms, there is no reason to be concerned by a HR of 54.
Many well trained athletes have resting heart rates in the 30s. The key is symptoms. If there are none then there is no concern. Bradycardia is a descriptive term. Symptomatic bradycardia is a clinical condition requiring treatment.
