Our expert says:
Hi Lizzie. A normal heart rate is anything from about 50 to 90 per minute, so a resting heart rate of 52 per minute is perfectly normal. I am sure you will find that with exercise it increases normally and probably with strenuous exercise will reach high levels. There is some evidence that people with lower heart rates tend to live longer than those with high heart rates, so a relatively low rate is something to be pleased about, not worried!
Best wishes. JT.
