Re: Safe bp when exercising?

Needhealing,

Not sure of your gender but I've heard that in women, the systolic blood pressure (top number) should not increase more than 60 points above their baseline....OR above 190, whichever one is lower.

Let's say your resting systolic blood pressure is 120. Your peak blood pressure should not increase above 180 while exercising.

I would imagine this should apply to men as well.
