BP journal: Invest in a good digital BP machine ( Omron ) and check your BP before exercising 3x/day to get your baseline. After exercising BP should be lower that 160 ( systolic) and between 60-95 ( diastolic ).- you cannot really "feel" BP- it must be measured and monitored. ...Read more

PulsePressure & Rate: Pulse strength: a result of the pulse pressure; the difference in the systolic vs. diastolic pressure; a result of (a) cardiac stoke volume vs. (b) arterial volume & (c) elasticity (assuming no Aortic Regurg. or AV shunts). Pulse is a result of each heart beat, thus will never be faster than heart rate; but can be slower (some heart pumps not felt). If major arteries are open then pressures ~same. ...Read more
