If your blood pressure is more than 140/90mmHg to 179/99mmHg or higher, you have high blood pressure.
Even if your blood pressure is in the healthy range, it is important to exercise to keep your level healthy.
The Blood Pressure UK site explains: “If you have high blood pressure, your doctor or nurse will probably suggest that you try to become more active to lower it.
“Exercise also strengthens the bones, improves balance, and keeps your muscles and joints moving to help keep you active and independent in later life.
“It can also give you more energy, lift your mood, and even improve your cognitive function.”
