Apparently physical activity can significantly raise blood pressure.

Is prolonged strenuous physical activity (8hrs+) a risk factor for the effects of high blood pressure?

  • I'm not sure what in my question pertains to trying to get "Personalised medical advice" and I have no idea how I can improve the question. Basically what I am asking is whether a lot of physical activity would constitute a risk factor for high BP. If the answer to that question is "Personalised medical advice" then simply close the question. – tmsg Feb 17 '18 at 12:46
  • OK. First paragraph could be read as just that in disguise along with you worrying about your BP, giving these personal numbers. Just a precaution. – Improvement for this Q is still possible by reading How to Ask and documenting (with links) a bit of your prior research. – This does not criticise the content or goal of your question. Just a little nudge. Interesting reasoning. – LаngLаngС Feb 17 '18 at 12:58
  • You need to ask yourself why blood pressure rises with exercise, and how different that is from at rest. – Graham Chiu Feb 17 '18 at 15:09
  • The opposite is true. – Count Iblis Feb 17 '18 at 18:47
