Abstract
Background: The prevention and treatment of hypertension are a high priority in medicine and public health. It is well documented that blood pressure reduction with medication significantly reduces cardiovascular risk. Exercise remains a cornerstone therapy for the primary prevention, treatment, and control of hypertension. This study aims at analysing the effect of Aerobic exercises on reduction of Blood Pressure in the subject with Pre and Stage 1 hypertension.

Material and Methods: In this study patient with prehypertension and stage 1 hypertension without any premedication cardiac therapy were selected. They underwent 6 weeks of aerobic exercise training program. The aerobic exercise program consisted of repetitive, low resistance movements for at least 30 to 45 min, at 50% to 70% of Max heart rate, 3 to 4 times per week. The systolic & diastolic blood pressure were measured at baseline and after 6 weeks of aerobic exercises training program using
Sphygmomanometer and pulse rate was measured by manual method.

Results: The result of present study demonstrated a significant difference between group effects in both the Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure. It was found that there was significant difference in the mean systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure values for pre and stage hypertensive subjects.

Conclusions: In conclusion, the inclusion of Aerobic exercise in daily activities is an efficient way of blunting the blood pressure changes in hypertensive patients and it is of high statistical significance (p<0.005). The above mentioned efficiency is more on Stage 1 hypertensive subjects when compared to pre hypertensive subjects.

Key words: Hypertension, Aerobic Exercise
