back in jan of this year I started to exercise regularly on an elliptical. My goal is a 40-50 minute workout on the “weight loss” setting. When I began , my weight was nearly 230lbs, my bp 150/84 and my resting heart rate was 72bpm. As of this morning, my weight is 209 lbs, my bp is 132/75 and my resting rate has plunged all the way down to 53 bpm. I am very excited about my changes overall, but have 2 concerns:
1) is a resting heart rate drop from 72 to 53 in only 5 months time too drastic of a change?
2) my pulse pressure is still 57, and from what I’ve read that is still not good.
any thoughts/advice would be appreciated – BTW, Im a 55 yr old male
