Re: heart rate?

I have a heart rate question, but didn't want to start another thread. Your opinions will be greatly appreciated.

I'm a 23 year old male, and my resting heart rate up until recently used to be anywhere from 75 to 85. Now I find it constantly in the 60's. At night, it even drops into the 50's. Is this normal? I'm not a trained athlete, but I do exercise and weightlift, and I am still young.

I just started an exercise program about a month ago, and that's when i noticed my heart rate dip lower. Is it normal to dip so much so soon?

Also, I see people saying the normal heart rate is 60-100 beats per minute. If it drops into the 50's, is that dangerous? All help and opinions will be of great help. Thank you!
