As I seem to be confusing myself massively via Google, I'm hoping you guys will be able to help me please.......I am 35, overweight, but otherwise fit and healthy. I've been a gym goer for a few years and running (well, trying to) for a few months now. We were playing with a blood pressure monitor in the office today and my resting heart rate was 62 (great, a nice fit rate) but my blood pressure was high - something like 130/93! I only went to the docs afew weeks ago and they checked all that wih no problems, but I don't know what the readings were. I've come out high on these home monitors before but have never even had blood pressure concerns mentioned by any doctor (and believe me they are always on about weight etc lol).
I have read that daily exercise can cause higher blood pressure with a low heart rate and it isn't a bad thing, but then again I've read the opposite!
