Bp & Hr Dropping


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have kept up for the most part with my half hour walks 2 times a week. I'm just curious though, I thought when a person exercises their heartrate and BP are supposed to go up..? Both mine go down...Is that normal??

Before Walk 113/76 Pulse 73

Bp 109/70 Pulse 78 After Walk

Jaquie,

BP and HR changes constantly. If you were to hook yourself up to a monitor that showed your HR and BP at 10 second intervals, the numbers would rarely be the same twice. Unless you're having a drop in BP of at least 20 points systolic, or 10 points diastolic (for example, from 120/80 to 100/70), or a jump or drop in HR of over 30 beats per minute, you really don't have much to worry about. The numbers you posted are both within the normal range for HR and BP.

However, if you're unusually tired after your walks, you might want to pace yourself a bit so you don't wear yourself out.
