welcome to health care magic.
As you are 49 years male smoker , you are not mentioned about hypertension and diabetes, whether you are taking any previous medication.
Normally pulserate changes with activity.
Resting pulse rate of 70 may go upto 100-120 based upon what activity you are doing.
In post exercise heart rate of 103 may be normal( you mentioned you are in gym).
But you did your cardiac evaluation 2years ago , so again need full cardiac evaluation including stress test.
Presently your Blood pressure recording is normal only.
so you need cardiac evaluation.
thank you.
