Muscle growth’s weight gain’s effect on bp.

Q: Does weight increase due to exercise and muscle growth negatively affect BP?

A: Exercise is good for blood pressure. Muscle tissue does weigh more than fat but the weight gain associated with converting fat to muscle isn’t that great. In the long run most people lose weight with a regular exercise program unless they change their eating habits.
