,” said the researchers from Canterbury Christ Church University, UK. “These findings provide a comprehensive data driven framework to support the development of new exercise guideline recommendations for the prevention and treatment of arterial hypertension (
Previously published research shows that exercise in general is associated with significant reductions in blood pressure, with aerobic (cardio) exercise, such as walking, running, and cycling, the type primarily recommended for managing blood pressure. But this recommendation is largely based on older data that exclude the newer forms of exercise, such as HIIT and isometric exercise, meaning that the current recommendations are probably outdated, the researchers said. It may be time to review the current exercise guidelines for the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure, they noted.
To potentially update information on the best form of exercise for controlling blood pressure, they included 270 randomized controlled trials published between 1990 and February 2023 in the analysis, with a pooled data sample size of 15,827 participants.
The pooled data analysis showed significant reductions in resting systolic and diastolic BP after all the various categories of exercise, but with the largest falls in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure after isometric exercise training.
