Lifting Weights with Hypertension

Do you have hypertension and lift weights? Then this post is VERY important. ⠀
If you have high blood pressure you should avoid heavy resistance training (try and keep it no higher than 80-85% of your 1RM) as heavy resistance training on its own increases your blood pressure. So pairing your own high blood pressure with the effects of heavy weight training could lead to negative vascular events such as stroke or heart attack. You also want to avoid the valsalva maneuver as holding your breath while lifting can also increase your blood pressure. One exercise you should consider throwing out of your programming completely if you’re hypertensive is the leg press because it utilizes the activity of a lot of large muscles (lower body) under heavy loading and yields no functional purpose. Therefore risk outweighs benefits. ⠀

Exercise and Asthma

Struggle with asthma? Did you know that most people who have asthma avoid exercise because of being scared of having an attack or making the asthma worse? I am here to tell you that exercising with asthma is totally safe (assuming you have your “puffer” with you at all times in case of an episode!) and encouraged! Regular aerobic exercise between 60-80% of HRR has been shown to decrease incidents of asthma attack.⠀

It is important to make sure you are going to a gym with great air circulation (aka some A/C), avoiding cold, dry air, or non-air circulating environment. It is also important to spend extra time warming up and cooling down. It is also important to understand that high intensity exercise and long duration/continuous activity trigger more asthmatic events than moderate intensity and “stop and go” exercise.

Are you considered obese?

women are considered obese when they have a body fat of 32%, and men when their body fat is at 25%. Obesity puts you at an increased risk for disease through low grade inflammation.⠀

Exercise may help fight obesity by tipping the energy balance in an individuals favor as well as reducing circulating cytokines associated with development of atherosclerosis, diabetes, and inflammation. Exercise also reduces the accumulation of visceral fat storage, which is the primary cause of adipokine dysfunction.⠀

So Over Instafamous Trainers

Fitness stars posting wrong information?! Does that really happen….OH YES! And for whatever reason, the bigger the following, the faker the tan, the more shredded the abs, the more fit facts get screwed up. BE CAREFUL where you get your advice from, I seriously cannot stress it enough! Just because someone has abs and a million followers and claims to be a fitness professional doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing. You can be anything on the internet, ESPECIALLY if you know how to market.⠀

And to those fitpos screwing up your fit facts….SHAME ON YOU! Make mistakes about stuff that has nothing to do about what you claim your profession to be, but don’t screw up on what you actually claim to know.⠀ typos i’ll let slide only because i’m the queen of typos 🤣
