When it comes to the "three highs", everyone is very familiar with them. Nowadays, there are more and more patients with hypertension. Not only do elderly and obese people have hypertension, but many young people, even very thin people, have hypertension. The reason for this is related to their daily habits, as many people have poor habits that can easily cause hypertension. Therefore, in addition to taking medication, hypertensive patients should also pay attention to strengthening exercise to help regulate blood pressure.
1、 Tai Chi Boxing
Tai Chi is a sport suitable for patients with hypertension, with low intensity. During Tai Chi practice, it can regulate the patient's breathing, promote blood circulation, and also affect the bones and muscles throughout the body. Exercise can also make one feel happy and have great benefits in controlling blood pressure.
Jogging is faster than walking and can accelerate the body's metabolism. Jogging can also help maintain a stable heart rate, thereby keeping blood pressure in a long-term stable state. However, hypertensive patients should pay attention to controlling their intensity when jogging, not running too long, and controlling their exercise volume. When you feel uncomfortable, you should stop and rest.
Walking is also a great way to exercise, as it doesn't need to be too fast. A normal walking speed is more suitable for patients with hypertension. Taking a few extra steps when free can help regulate body function and help maintain long-term blood pressure control. This is a great exercise method for hypertensive patients.
Whether hypertensive patients can swim is a controversial issue. Some people say that swimming helps stabilize blood pressure, while others say that high blood pressure patients are not suitable for swimming. In fact, a specific analysis is needed. Swimming is the most comprehensive exercise among all sports. Long term adherence to swimming can enhance myocardial contractility, slow down heart rate during rest, increase the output of each heartbeat, improve the efficiency of the cardiovascular system, and achieve a certain effect of controlling blood pressure.
Swimming is a very healthy exercise, but it is also a dangerous one. Patients with hypertension must be very careful when swimming.
Most patients with severe hypertension have insufficient vascular elasticity, and the water temperature in the swimming pool is generally lower than body temperature. After stimulation, blood vessels contract and blood pressure correspondingly increases. If blood pressure remains high after taking antihypertensive drugs, swimming should be absolutely prohibited to prevent the occurrence of angina, myocardial infarction, and cerebrovascular diseases.
Yoga is one of the most unrestricted activities. Whether in the living room, bedroom, or balcony, as long as there is a place to lie flat, you can start yoga. When practicing yoga, the coordination of various postures and correct breathing methods can greatly increase the oxygen content in the blood, promote blood circulation, and lower blood pressure.
In addition, some yoga postures can greatly extend the neck, stimulate the secretion of thyroxine, stimulate the body's metabolism, facilitate blood circulation, and thus lower blood pressure. After practicing yoga, the whole body is relaxed and the mood is calm. This is also why people who practice yoga for a long time have lower blood pressure flow.
In fact, no matter what exercise they do, hypertensive patients should be able to choose the exercise that suits them, without forcing themselves or exercising too little. By relying on exercise to lower blood pressure, it is necessary to persist and not give up halfway. Only in this way can blood pressure be controlled.
