My BP was elevated when I was at my GP recently. They had me monitor it at home for a week and it was mostly under 140/90 which is what they were hoping for but a few times it was over.
I immediately stopped weight lifting as I read online that heavy weight lifting is not recommended if your BP is high and instead to maybe look at higher reps with lighter weights. But as I say I stopped all weight training regardless and forgot to ask the GP if I needed to.
I walk a reasonable amount and cycle a bit but that is all I do. I don't do any strength exercises at all.
Does anyone here do weights with high BP? I'm convinced I can get mine down further with weight loss and a better diet.
