What's your resting heart rate?
Can you describe your exercise habits for me?

The reason I ask is because my brother has a resting heart rate of 60, and he's a dance major so gets tons of exercise and is very healthy. My resting heart rate is 52, which apparently is very low for both men and women, and my brother's kind of upset that someone who is in a lot worse shape than him has a better heart rate. (We did decide that his is high because of all the medicine he takes, but that doesn't explain how weirdly low mine is)

Does my lower heart rate mean I have more potential to do well athletically?
