Heart rate of 50 per minute is nothing to be alarmed of if he is asymptomatic, even though the normal range is from 60 to 100 per minute. It will be nice to make sure that the rhythm is sinus rhythm (normal rhythm) by getting an ECG evaluated by a physician. Heart rate of 50 is usual in a trained athlete.
