I took my BP at Walmart the other day... 127. I think diastolic pressure was 90.

To put myself into perspective:

20-year-old male.
Resting HR: 56
Sleeping HR: 42
BP: 98/57

Yeah, I'm damn near dead. The drop to double-digit BP is something recent. Hopefully it's just a winter thing. :Q

Low blood pressure, not conditionally so but almost. Don't run as much as I used to, so heart rate is probably not as good as it used to be.

I tested the other day and had 135/something...I dont remember the other. It's high normal, but I don't like that I have such a high blood pressure while being so in shape and eating healthy :(

Well, you are the snake icon. Must be all that cold blood slowing your metabolism to a crawl :)

As for mine, BP is something like 120/80 and "normal" HR is around 54.

High blood pressure can be caused by genetic reasons. So you can be the fittest person in the world and still have high blood pressure.

I'm happy to report that I'm well within normal limits. Which is surprising as my dad suffers from high blood pressure.

I think I'm somewhere near right on target, 120/80. Which is awesome since high blood pressure runs in my family.
