Strength Training Can Reduce Blood Pressure.

A recent literature review concluded that just eight-to- ten weeks of strength training is sufficient to reduce systolic blood pressure by 10 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by 4.79 mmHg. Researcher Dr. Giovana Rampazzo Teixeira explains, “In clinical practice and gyms or fitness centers, strength training can be a treatment option for people with high blood pressure as a non- pharmacological intervention as long as you know enough about the key variables and take the subject’s goals into account.” Scientific Reports, March 2023
