Why do atheltes have lower blood pressure and lower heart rate?
Lol man a Google search would really take you a long way here. But in any case, an athletes heart is strong, vessels are clear of plaque, and body is free from excess weight. Therefore, it doesn't need to beat as often or as forcefully to get the blood to perfuse the body and saturate muscles.
