Blood pressure response to stress is better controlled in people who have more muscle than fat. The fitter a person is, the quicker their recovery with respect to blood pressure. This occurs because muscle is better than fat at excreting sodium which helps reduce blood pressure. However, people with higher muscle mass also tended to have higher blood pressure responses to stress.
