Only 30 minutes of workout every morning can be as effective as drugs for lowering blood pressure during the rest of the day, the study showed.
The study showed that a short flash of physical exercises – in this case, passing on a racetrack at moderate intensity – had long-term effects, and there were additional benefits from additional three-minute walks later in the day.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) welcomed the study saying that 30 minutes of training every morning also
The experts studied data for men and women overweight and obesity aged 55 to 80 years at the start of the study.
35 women and 32 men participated in three different daily plans at random, at least six days between each of them.
The first plan consisted of a continuous seating for eight hours, while the second consisted of one hour sitting up to 30 minutes walking on a treadmill at moderate intensity, after which it was 6.5 hours sitting [1
. standardize the results, and both men and women ate the same food in the evening before the study and throughout the day.
Experts measured arterial pressure and heart rate and taken blood tests to assess the level of adrenalin for every eight-hour plan
The results, Published in the Journal of Hypertension from the American Heart Association, found that blood pressure, especially systolic blood pressure, was lower than that of men and women who participated in exercise plans compared to when they did not exercise Exercise. Additional benefits if added in short three-walled walks throughout the day.
Systolic blood pressure – which measures blood pressure in the blood vessels when the heart is present – is a stronger predictor of heart problems such as heart attacks than diastolic blood pressure, which measures blood pressure vessels, when the heart lies between blows.
Michael Wheeler, lead author of a study at the University of Western Australia in Perth, said: "For men and women, the decrease in the mean systolic pressure of the blot Pressure after exercises and breaks in the seat has approached what can be expected from antihypertensives in this population to reduce the risk of death from heart disease and stroke.
"However, this reduction was greater for women." Researchers said they do not know why there is a gender difference, but they believe that it can be associated with a combination of factors
These include the various responses of adrenaline to exercise and the fact that all women in the study were after Menopause and
But Dr. Wheeler said that men and women in older age groups may benefit from morning exercise.
He said: "As the proportion of those who are overweight with higher blood pressure increases from age, adopting a strategy of combining intermittently sitting exercises may be important to control and prevent the development of high blood
Chris Allen, a senior cardiac nurse, the British Heart Foundation (BHF), said: "This study supports a huge amount of evidence that regular physical activity can help lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. .
your body and mind are acceleration, so 30 minutes of activity in the morning is a great way to prepare yourself for that day.
"In BHF, we encourage those who are trying to lower blood pressure to train regularly. Eat a healthy Mediterranean diet and regularly check your health.
"If you are new to being more active, you can always check your doctor and seek advice."
About one in four adults in the UK have high blood pressure.
