Is blood pressure of 150/75 in an athlete normal?

I have a fairly consistent blood pressure of 150/75 while on Diltiazem and Diovan. I am a competative athlete (powerlifter), weighing 140kig and do regular cardiovascular training. I have been training for approximately 20yrs. I do not take any synthetic testosterone or any other enhancing drug. I have asked my doctor and he says it's hereditary. What do you think?
