Q: Can body building affect blood pressure?
A: Any form of exercise can temporarily elevate blood pressure during the activity.
Over the long run, regular exercise lowers blood pressure. A good body building
program will also include exercises designed to keep the most important muscle
of the body, the heart, in good shape. Unfortunately some body builders also
take unregulated supplements that can harm the body in hopes of bulking up
their muscles. To read more about muscle enhancing supplements go to this article from the Mayo Clinic.
