What are within normal heart rates?

hi, I hear so much from so many doctors about what is normal and what the heart can tolerate.  What are within ranges of normal for resting and for being up and about.  Isn't tachycardia considered a rate of over 100 bpm and bradycardia below 60 bpm.  What about the extremes?  Like the 40-50's and on the other hand 80-130's.  I asked a doctor once this question and she says as long as no one has symptoms any rate can be normal.  Some have rates in the 90's and 100's while resting while others can be in the 40's and 50's while up.  Is there really a normal? And is it normal for a pulse rate to swing up and down so dramatically?  Just curious.

hi
our hearts beat over a 100,000 times a day so u can see it is a well functioned muscle ,
Your resting heart rate is best described as the number of times your heart beats per minute when you are in a fully relaxed physical and mental state. For the typical adult , this value usually ranges between 60 and 100 times per minute. Younger ages, however, are strongly associated with higher normal resting heart rates. Normal rates can be as high as 160 beats per minute for infants and 120 beats per minute for children. Females also tend to have slightly higher heart rates than males, as do individuals with higher body masses
Heart rates, particularly during and after exercise, though, are also highly sensitive to a person’s hydration and nutrition status. Dehydration represents a state of diminished water supply in your body. Because circulating blood is composed of approximately 83 percent water, dehydration effectively lowers the amount of blood that your heart is able to circulate with one beat, or contraction. Your heart compensates for this low "water" volume by beating more times per minute.anxiety ,stress ,excitment ,dancing like your name will all raise the hr as you know ,so some of us are all different when it come to that ,i know some consider under 55 to be brady but this depends on fittness as well ,but a good normal rate would be between 60 to 70 resting {this will be lower while sleeping as bp drops as well ] and 75 to 90 while active this will vary as well depending on what u are doing ,things like thyroid function,caffeine,sugary foods,smoking,will all have an effect on the rate ,but a good healthy active diet and lifestyle will all play a role in making your heart happy ,it may still throw the odd tantrum ,but sometimes it just likes to be heard

have a nice day
