Exercise Tips for Lowering Blood Pressure

Brian Betancourt, Exercise Physiologist at Baptist Health South Florida, says the best exercises for lowering blood pressure are going to be the ones that just get you moving. “You don’t want to be anywhere you feel like your eyeballs are gonna come out of your head. Walking, biking and swimming at a moderate to low intensity, so if it’s a low intensity a longer duration, if it’s a moderate intensity slightly less than that, that’s gonna be your best exercise for lowering your blood pressure,” he explains.

He recommends doing something every day, because the effect that exercise has on blood pressure is progressive.
