Resting Systolic pressure (top one) averages "100 + your age" for Europeans and Asians, but rises and falls with your activity and stress. If you're middle-aged and lead an active life it should vary from about 120 up to perhaps well over 160 normally. If you're elderly, the readings can well range up to nearly 200 when your body is working hard, but be assured, it's of little danger. I'm 80 years old, and "100 + Age" means mine is regularly between 160 and 190. But I'm fit, and do steady regular exercise, during which my Systolic pressure often rises to 220. - And I'm still here, fit and heathy! There's no "Maximum for men".....but if you're quite young, and have a high systolic pressure, then it's much more concern than the same reading if you're old, and may indicate some disorder. Best wishes!
