For pre-hypertension, currently they are the only intervention recommended. They are used as an adjunct therapy for the management of hypertension along with antihypertensive drugs. Regular exercise is one of the most important steps in lifestyle modifications for management of high blood pressure. Regular aerobic exercise has been clearly proven to play an important role in prevention of hypertension also.
