I seem to have high blood pressure according to those automated blood pressure machines in stores like shoppers and walmart, today I tested at 140/85 on a forearm one. I know these arn’t accurate, (i.e. an arm bigger than average inreases pressure), but how accurate are they? I would think that I appear to be healthy heart wise, (For refernece I am 22, BF is around 10%, at 6’, 200 lbs), is body comp a good way to guage heart health or no? Should I be worried about these readings?
Some other info: I don’t do cardio much, sometimes I do a few burpies or go for a short run once a week or every other week. Other than that I just walk when I have to go somewhere.
