Blood pressure normally rises on exercise. And not raising is a bad sign.

During stress test it is allowed to get much higher before they will stop the test.

Now, I am not a medical professional and don't know how much of a rise is normal. Nor do I have any way of telling how hard your "moderate" exercise or how long.

Also the amount of BP rise will vary with the type of exercise.

At your next regular doctors appointment discuss this with him.
