Hi, I have been regularly going to the gym and used to lift heavy but I’ve been recently diagnosed with hypertension and I am wondering if I should be continuing my regular exercises or should I change my training program? I appreciate any suggestions 🙂
Hi Lauren, I’ve a similar experience as yours and I did some small changes with my work-out program. If you lift up heavy and push your limits, it can increase your blood pressure as your body/muscles need more blood circulating to generate power. Perhaps it could be a nice idea to revise your work-out program with your trainer and/or physician.
Hello. I like taking long walks outside and riding my bicycle. But since I’ve been diagnosed with hypertension, I am afraid that I no longer be able to do them, especially in hot seasons. Is my concern properly placed or do you suggest something else?
