How high should your blood pressure raise after exercise-in terms of systolic and diastolic values? e.g is 127/74 before and 150/101 a normal increase after walking up and down a 16 inch step?

BP and excercise: It is normal for your blood pressure to increase during and right after exercising. If that is the reading about 20 minutes after resting, you should be concerned. Check with a local physician if that is the case. Otherwise, you should keep doing what you do. Exercise and eat healthy.
