Why Does Systolic Blood Pressure Increase during Exercise?

Systolic blood pressure increases during exercise because when you exercise, your body requires more oxygen hence the heart beats faster and more forcefully so as to increase the amount of blood and oxygen in your body. This in turn causes pressure on the walls of the arteries to increase hence causing systolic blood pressure to increase.
