Mane don’t go playing the genetics card just yet.
“Genetic factors likely play some role in high blood pressure, heart disease, and other related conditions. However, it is also likely that people with a family history of high blood pressure share common environments and other potential factors that increase their risk.”
You should probably have a chat with your doctor about this either way.
Get measured on a proper sized cuff too because with them 22 inch arms how you gonna get an accurate reading on a small.
Exercise, diet and other lifestyle interventions should be targeted, programmed and progressed towards reducing high blood pressure not just “healthy” stuff. At least before resorting to medications that is.
Specific medications and their side effects can be discussed with your doctor
Maybe chill on the juice if you are on.
Mane you gotta weigh up the pros and cons urself.
If you love lifting and it increases your quality of life that much maybe its worth a few less years of life or a bit more suffering towards the back end.
On the other hand it may seem like that now but in a few decades maybe you’d rather have a few extra years to spend with loved ones.
Maybe you end up somewhere in between, you successfully manage with interventions or luck out and get both gains + long life and die peacefully in your sleep from being old af.
Think about it. Chat with family, friends, doctors, lifting buddies or even people on web forums. Get lots of points of views and experiences.
