Lower Your Blood Pressure With Isometric Exercises

Lower Your Blood Pressure With Isometric Exercises


Recently researchers from the American Heart Association looked at ways to lower blood  pressure .

They were surprised to find that doing a series of isometric hand-grip exercises lowered blood pressure by 10%!

The exercises are very simple; just hold a stress ball (or any toy foam ball) in your hand and squeeze firmly for 10 seconds, breathing deeply and evenly. Rest and repeat five times.

You can buy foam balls in toy shop but I rather like squeezy Stress Ball Paul from Amazon. And some find him very helpful in other ways;

"He sits on my desk and inspires me not to let certain people get to me. He reminds me that I'm not that person who gives in anymore. I am stronger."
