How Do I Lower My Resting Heart Rate While Still Gaining Muscle?

Hi, I’m 20 yrs old, 6’1 145-150 ibs, been looking to gain muscle, but my resting heart rate SUCKS! I just checked it right now, it was somewhere like 72-75bpm. I know a lot of cardio messes up the plan for muscle gain, how can I still go about gaining muscle and lowering my resting heart rate?

Well you are lacking endurance, that's always when you start building muscles.

You have to focus the first 3 a 6 months on cardio or jogging to stabilize your heart-beat rate. And than you can change the focus on building muscles and just maintain the cardio.

And you will see and feel that building muscles will go much easier as well.
