A Proven Fix for HBP (High Blood Pressure)

We all know that exercise is good for our health but do you know that doing cardio and lifting weights can keep your blood pressure in check? Researchers at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil found that a single session-three sets of six low-intensity resistance exercise, can reduce your numbers, lowering your heart disease risk. According to Claudia Forjaz, Ph.D., study author and department chief of the university's School of Physical Education and Sport, when you lift weights your heart rate and blood pressure increase. This causes your blood vessels to expand, an effect that may last hours, making it easier for your heart to pump blood and ultimately lowering your pressure. Add two bouts with the 'bells to your weekly routine to help keep your stats low.
