High blood pressure can have a range of negative effects on your body, from increasing your risk of heart attack or stroke to causing kidney damage. But did you know that there are certain exercises you can do to help lower your blood pressure? Keep reading to learn more about the best exercises for people with high blood pressure.
It’s important that you consult with your doctor before starting any type of physical activity if you suffer from high blood pressure. This will ensure that you don’t over-exert yourself and cause any further complications. It will also help you to find an appropriate level of activity as well as determine how much exercise is right for you.
One of the most effective exercises for lowering high blood pressure is aerobic exercise. This type of exercise helps your heart become stronger and increases your overall stamina. Examples of aerobic exercise include running, swimming, cycling, and walking. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per day—which is generally considered anything where you’re still able to talk but not sing—but keep in mind that it’s better if you can do more than that. If you’re just starting out, try splitting the time up into three 10-minute sessions throughout the day for a total of 30 minutes per day.
Walk It Out
One of the best exercises for people with high blood pressure is walking. This low-impact form of physical activity is safe and easy on the joints while providing significant cardiovascular benefits. Additionally, walking not only helps improve overall heart health but can also help lower cholesterol levels in just 30 minutes a day! So throw on some comfortable shoes and hit the pavement or trails—walking can be done anywhere.
Strength training may seem intimidating at first, but it’s actually an excellent way to strengthen the muscles around your heart, which can help regulate your blood pressure levels. Try starting off with basic bodyweight exercises like pushups, squats and lunges, then progress to using weights once you have built up enough strength and endurance. Make sure that any weights used are light-to-moderate and that safety protocols are followed at all times
