Re: why does blood pressure go up when walking

It varies depending on the intensity of the workout. Blood pressure is supposed to go up when we exercise, that is normal. How high is too high, I don't know. Depends on age, conditioning, etc. Check with your doctor if you suspect yours is running too high.

Re: why does blood pressure go up when walking

I generally get nice and low (for me--120s/80) readings after a hard cardio workout. I take it within 15 minutes to an hour after stopping. I have no idea what my BP would measure during exercise; it would be awfully hard to take it while doing the actual workout.
