Lifting weights with high blood pressure.

Q: Is it safe to lift weights when one has high blood pressure?

A: People with high blood pressure are encouraged to exercise. Having a regular exercise program will help keep blood pressure in control. Check with your doctor before starting a vigorous exercise program. Certain blood pressure medicines block the ability of your heart to beat faster so you need to know if your doctor feels your exercise needs to be restricted.
