Hypertension in the Power Lifter Diagnosis and Treatment

Hypertension in the Power Lifter
Diagnosis and treatment
By Thomas O’Connor, MD The Metabolic Doc
May 2015

In addition to lipid abnormalities, hypertension is one of the most common dangerous medical conditions affecting modern day Power Lifters’.

When lifters’ are young ( <35 years old) and lean, hypertension is rare, but as the “Lifter” gets older and gets larger, he ( and yes-SHE) can become hypertensive. I would say that at least 75 % of my male Lifters’ that are > 40 years old and training at body weights >220 lbs are hypertensive- BP’s > 140/90 mmHg.
