Our expert says:
It's pretty normal that BP drops after exercise, especially cardio, so no, don't be concerned. In fact, this is a good thing and this is also one of the reasons why exercise is recommended for hypertension. The reason it happens is that during exercise, your body releases a lot of chemicals that cause the blood vessels to dilate (open up) and this causes the pressure to drop. It is especially effective for the diastolic BP (the lower value). Sometimes, you'll see that your systolic BP goes UP because your heart is beating more forcefully, but the diastolic goes down. Again, this is a good thing!
