Exercise-Induced Hypertension / Ironman Training
Hello,

I am a 33 yr old male who was diagnosed with exercise-induced hypertension after a stress test in 2008. I haven't had a test since then but was curious on whether this is something that will prevent me from doing certain activities, such
as training for an Ironman distance race. Thank you!

Exercise-induced hypertension is not completely understood, but should not be a deterrant to exercise. However, for extreme/intense training -- such as an Ironman, you should take note if you experience any new symptoms, or develop resting hypertension (when you are not exercising).  If so, it may then be indicated to lower the intensity of your training regimen -- as Ironman competitions are often above and beyond the normal exercise intensity of that recommended for routine cardiovascular health maintenance.

Thank you! I am going to meet with a Cardiologist in the Philadelphia area as well to ensure I am safe to train. Thanks so much again.
