Description[edit | edit source]

A description of this project as introduced by Quantified Self follows:

Siva Raj was interested in lowering his blood pressure. With a family history of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks he was worried about slightly elevated blood pressure (pre-hypertension). Despite a regular exercise and healthy diet, his blood pressure measurement didn’t respond. After reading literature about the link between fitness and cardiovascular health, Siva decided to change his training to improve his fitness. He decided to incorporate a increased intensity into his routine. After a short period of time he had increases in this fitness and was able to observe the reduction in blood pressure he was looking for. Siva explains his methods at the Boston QS Meetup group.
