Especially if by genetic factors, how has it affected your weightlifting lifestyle?
Even though I exercise a lot, keep cardio part of my fitness routine, and eat as heathy as I can, my father has high blood pressure and it runs in my family, and when something is hereditary there isn’t much you can do about it.
I’m young in my early 20’s, I know there are younger people with hbp due to the hereditary factor.
If I’m ever unfortunate to get hereditary high blood pressure, will I be able to keep doing what I love the most, fitness (weightlifting and strength traning)? Any of you have high blood pressure due to genetics or do you know of anyone that does? If so, how does it affect your/or their fitness plan, wether it’s weightlifting or strenth training. Are you still able to weightlift while taking medications?
If you take medication, does medication effectively work by keeping your bp normal in moments of strain (such as lifting moderarte to heavy or when you perform exercises a wide variety of exercides?
I read somewhere that weightlifting can be good for hbp in the long run but it can cause pressure spikes,
when you lift, what precautions do you take? What has your doctor told you?
In conclusion, I just want to know if someone diagnosed with hbp (due to genetic factors) will be negatively & drastically affected as to have to change their fitness plans, from calisthenics exercises, and
normal to heavy lifting, all the way to no more calisthenics and
light weight lifting… How would one able to keep getting bigger and stronger with light weights.? That would be a very depressing change.
Sorry, I’m just paranoid, I guess I think and worry too much easily.
Any of your thoughts or actual experience will be greatly appreciated.
