In brief: Pulse pressure

The pulse pressure is defines as the difference between higher and lower BP measurements.
Higher puls epressures have been associated with such diseases as Alzheimers while lower pulse pressure is an undesirable finding in patients with heart failure. The widened pulse pressure may occur naturally in young, healthy people, provided they are not clinically hypertensive. With exercises, BP increases

In brief: Not a problem.

A normal blood pressure of 120-130/70 would represent a pulse pressure of 50-60; it's normal.
There is no need to waste ones time trying to improve upon normal.
