How long should you wait to take BP after exercise?
Regular physical activity helps reduce your blood pressure. But it’s normal for blood pressure to increase right after exercising. In order to get the most accurate reading, the best time to take your blood pressure is 30 minutes after exercising.
Does BP go up after exercising?
Blood pressure goes up during and immediately after exercise, as your heart works hard to get blood pumped to muscles. Usually, you’ll only see a rise in the systolic (upper) number, while the diastolic (bottom) number stays relatively the same or decreases slightly.
When is the best time to take your blood pressure?
Take it first in the morning before eating or taking any medications. Take it again in the evening. Each time you measure, take two or three readings to make sure your results are the same. Your health care provider might recommend taking your blood pressure at the same times each day.
