    K-, you're kickin ass bro, I am scared to go past 455 on squats, I don't wrap my knees and rarely wear a belt anymore, so I don't see it as being wise to go higher... Usually I just stick to reps around 405. I think I'm going to start following your log. lol

    Fat weight or muscle weight, if you get heavier your blood pressure will go up regardless...

    excess fat decreases the body's ability to excrete soduim which is the primary method for dropping blood pressure back to normal.

    Lean muscle tissue improves the body's ability to exrete soduim and thus the body's ability to regulate blood pressure.

    That doesn't mean a large musclular person has good blood pressure as they may not perfom activities that improve cardiovascular health or have hormonal or hereditary reasons for blood pressure. However it does mean they would have much better blood pressure than if they had the same BW but with more fat than muscle. It is well documented.

    I have never seen a study showing that increasing muscle mass increases blood pressure. I have seen many of the opposite however.

    Thanks for all the positive support guys.

  4. It makes my measly 435 LB squat feel inadequate. Although I am 6'6, if that wins me any excuse points.

    I should print those out and bring them to my Doc. My high bp is genetic. I just wonder how I can get mine down to yours. The only time mine has been perfect like that is when I was in my early 20's. I'm just jealous of you, who wouldn't be. If I tried to lift that much they would be carrying me out of the gym on a stretcher!.

    I have a lot of respect for doctors...but you have to remember they are people as well. They have biases and other reasons for jumping to conclusions just like the rest of us. Just ask a doctor about creatine. many will be knowledgable but others will espouse the ignorant facts popularized by the media. That can be enlightening.

    It is best to find a doctor that is an athelete as well. You will find a big difference.

    I had a doctor tell me i was obese and needed to lose weight...then told me i shouldn't do powerlifting because i might become to strong for my joints and he watched a lifter rip both his arms off while trying to perform a lift about 15-20 years ago in the olympics. I didn't tell him that what he was remembering was an old SNL skit...i also didn't see him again.

    Agreed, a lot of doctors have a misconception on exercise.
