My pulse hovers around 90+ bpm for an hour or two after a couple cups of coffee. I don't think it's anything to be alarmed about.

This.

Medical advice from Arfcom is a much smarter thing to do.

Mine was 160 after my A-Fib started up.
Now with meds it's between 60-80 on a regular basis.

Lol I guess I'm the only who read the title and wondered what type of song/beat he was making that he thought 89BPM was bad

89 beats per min is not bad if you just finished running a 10min mile and are cooling down. Now if that is your resting rate, then yeah you may have a problem, when was the last time you had a checkup?

Have you used any Cocaine or Desomorphine recently? Are any body parts falling off? (If your penis is falling off, I don't want to hear about it.)

60 - 100 is considered normal.
My resting heart rate is 50 bpm, but I work out a lot.

It's a little high for your resting heart rate but not out of control depending on your age, weight, etc. Over 100 for resting and you need to get it checked out. There are so many variables, (stress, diet, weight, etc) that can effect your heart rate so you have to take that into account.

If you're electronic music, that's kind of slow. I like to see at least 120bpm, preferably with a lot of clear bass.

LOL.

Yes, because having a resting heart rate of 50 or below is so common.

Your knowledge of professional athlete fitness is on the light side. I ride my bicycle no more than four hours a week and my current resting heart rate is 43.

Call a doctor, a normal resting pulse rate is 60 to 100.

Bradycardia (Greek βραδυκαρδία, bradykard√≠a, "heart slowness"), in the context of adult medicine, is the resting heart rate of under 60 beats per minute, though it is seldom symptomatic until the rate drops below 50 beat/min. It may cause cardiac arrest in some patients, because those with bradycardia may not be pumping enough oxygen to their heart. It sometimes results in fainting, shortness of breath, and if severe enough, death.

Since your not overweight I would check it again in the morning some day before you have any coffee, etc, are relaxed, and not under any kind of stress. If it's still up over 90 it might be worth seeing your doctor to have your BP checked too.

It may be nothing though as a lot of people run a little high while some people run low naturally. Same with your BP, my wife's heart rate is low and she has low BP too. Almost scary low but her Doctor's have always said it's fine since everything else is normal.
