Low diastolic - after exercise

Is it normal for diastolic pressure to drop after exercise?

If I meassure my BP right after I do some pull ups its 157/57 with pulse of 112 repeated test after a minute its 158/60 pulse 103.

10 minutes later -> 130/55 with pulse of 85.

I've started taking norvasc 5mg - 5 days ago. The thing is I have never payed attention to my dystolic results before, so I am not sure if it was low before too.

Re: Low diastolic - after exercise

Your blood vessels dilate during exercise so the pressure would naturally be lower as you recover with it going back to normal after 10-15 minutes or so.
