What is the normal BP after excercise?

Hi Guys,

i took my bp 5 minutes after a 40 minute weight training and then 30 minute of HIIT cardio came home and took my BP and it was 170/100. Is that normal or am I near stroke? Lisa

Hi lisa, the same thing just happened to me. I went for my 3.5 mile brisk walk today. When i got home, i waited 15 mins and did my bp test. It read 173/100 w/ pulse 99. My bp runs high anyway but not after exercise. Is this normal. I started norvasc 5mgs a wk ago and i take lasix 20 and verapamil 240.

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

JTU,

I hope that's normal..Still waitng for others to respond. At least you give me consolation that you have it too. I guess misery loves company. I have been running around since 7:00 am and I have not rested enough to take it and see what is says again. I hope it goes back to normal..Lisa

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

Mine goes quite high for an hour or so after hard excercise and then dives to lower than normal for several hours afterward.
I've tried testing during exercise but my tester doesn't like the jostling and keeps giving me: ERROR!

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

My BP during exercise is anywhere from 130/60 to 155/75 and 5-10 min after exercise it retruns to normal (I've also seen a drop below normal). I'm 17 though.

JT.

I was thinking the same thing. I cannot compare myself to Naes since I am 46 and I wish I had BP that good. I wish I were that young again!!! Lisa

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

For me, the systolic only goes up a little. The diastolic remains unchanged. And, if I've had a fairly intensive workout, I'll get a radical drop in BP after about 1 hour. This usually lasts a couple hours. In fact, after one particular workout where I probably overdid it a little, I recorded 89/43.

Here's an interesting article that explains some of this:

Thanks Pal,

I read it and it said that it should lower it. The fuuny part about it it says "In addition cycling and heavy resistance training with the quadriceps, probably due to the very large increase in muscle blood flow to the legs, is associated with a greater hypotensive effect than seen following running" Well I worked my legs and then ran so my BP should have been low instead it was high. Not sure what that means. I think I will check out the excercise board to see if this is normal or different for others. ..Lisa

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

When I did a stress test the first number went up and the second number stayed the same. The Cardiologist said it was perfectly normal.

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

IRC,

That's a pretty good reading. I have to go back and try mine again this weekend after my workout. I can't during the week because i workout out at 4:45 am before got to work and I am rushing to get ready after that..Lisa

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

I worked out like a banshee today with heavy rsistancee training of the quadripceps, triceps, pecs, deltoids and lats. REALLY hard work.
About 6 hours later my BP is still nice and low with diastolics in the middle 70's.
A nice effect.

Re: What is the normal BP after excercise?

Yeah I've also found that my BP is much better on days that I exercise vs. days that I don't. I haven't actually measured during or immediately after exercise...but on days that I don't exercise my systolic is about 20 higher and diastolic is about 5 higher than on days that I don't exercise. I usually take my BP before I go to sleep
