Pressure tolerance is not a problem with me, I can handle some serious weight for my size. I got a buddy of mine who has issues with High blood pressure and he like to train hard too. Anyone got any suggestions besides drugs and supplements to help him out with getting used to heavy loads and dealing with high BP? Something like homeopathic remedies or yoga or some shit idk, whatever you guys can think of?

Has he dropped his sodium levels and upped his cardio ? That might help as well. Hawthorn berries, coq10, lots of fish oil, ect helps. My Dad has been on a great Bp medication called propranolol for years.

Supplement wise Ive recommended all of those, he aint got much money but im sure he will get to that. yes his sodium is dropped, I have him drink 1.5-2 gallons of water a day and at 30 mins. max cardio at least 5 days a week. His BP is pretty much good, its fluctuating but almost gone. So ideally we are trying to get it GONE! now he is doing okay, but like I stated we are trying to get him to handle heavier loads and higher intensity without any spikes or episodes of his BP going up and being elevated for more than a few days. any ideas?.....also Propranolol, this drug, any info?

Propronalol is a beta blocker, which will reduce bp and hr. why do you ask about this? The next thing to look at is his diet and his weight. Contrary to what most guys on this forum think, a more plant based diet will help w bp, cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease. Additionally, a drop in body fat will help.

Atixtm mentioned it. Just wondering. His diet is okay, I cant force him to clean it up but I got him doing more veggies, carbs are all complex, lean meats and fruits. In all honesty it depends on him, I do tell him to eat healthier and provide him with a general guideline but it all depends on whether or not he wants to eat right. The goal is to knock out the hypertension and keep it that way for a bit, then he will consider going on a cycle. As of now we gona cut some bodyfat and bring him a little bit lighter. Any recommendations on veggies n fruits that help with BP exphys88?

I don't think any particular food is going to make a profound difference, but cleaning up the diet as mentioned and dropping fat.

He should ask his dr about the class if drugs called "ARBS". These angiotnsin 2 receptor blockers are hands down the best out there for lowering BP with the least side effects. This is my professional field, BTW...
