Exercise and blood pressure

Exercising on blood pressure medication actually requires you to exercise under specific guidelines. 

If you are not on medication and your bp is raised, lowering your stress levels and walking might help.

If you are on medication, you may also be wondering why you are stuggling to lose weight, well that’s probably because blood pressure medication caps your heart rate at about 110bpm when exercising. So for weight loss you would need to focus on a good diet and walking for 45mins to about an hour. It’s more about the longevity for fat loss 3 times a week.

It is inappropriate to stop taking the medication that the Gp has prescribed unless he states otherwise.
