If you are physically very active resting heart rate can be low
Well trained athletes have heart rates in 40s
Please send the ECG so that I can check it for any abnormalities

Hello.... If you are athlete naturally you will have less heart beat that's called athletes bradycardia... Hypertension, carditis, electrolyte imbalance, and some medications can cause bradycardia... Get ecg and Echo and consult general physician or cardiologist.....
