Blood Pressure UK said: “Aerobic activity offers the greatest health benefit for high blood pressure.
“If you have high blood pressure, you should try to focus on activities that will help your heart and blood vessels.
“Aerobic activities are repetitive and rhythmic movements (exercises), and they use the large muscle groups of your body, such as those in your legs, shoulders and arms.”
Walking, jogging, swimming, dancing and digging are typical examples of aerobic activities.
The NHS advised aiming for at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week to keep health risks at bay.
