"High" relative to what?
On the one hand, a strength athlete will probably have a higher resting heart rate than an endurance athlete in the first place. So a heart rate that would be high for a marathoner may be completely normal for a powerlifter.
On the other hand, if the strength athlete's heart rate jumps 50% from his baseline, that still seems to indicate some kind of problem to me.
