High blood pressure: Doing this much exercise in the morning could lower your reading 1

As part of the study, the researchers had 67 participants (35 of whom were women) take part in three different scenarios in a random order, separated by at least six days.

These were uninterrupted sitting for eight hours, one hour of sitting prior to 30 minutes of exercise, followed by 6.5 hours of prolonged sitting, and one hour of sitting prior to 30 minutes of exercise, followed by sitting which was interrupted every 30 minutes with three minutes of light intensity walking for 6.5 hours.

The researchers found average blood pressure, especially systolic blood pressure, was reduced among both men and women who took part in morning exercise, compared to when they didn’t exercise.

A significant reduction in average systolic blood pressure was also found for women when they combined morning exerciser with frequent breaks from sitting.
