Blood pressure normally rises and falls throughout the day, but it can damage your heart and cause health problems if it stays high for a long time. Hypertension, the medical term for high blood pressure, puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke, which are leading causes of death in the United States.

Hypertension is often treated with medication, but several recent studies show that resistance training is just as effective. Resistance training like fit20 not only helps to keep blood pressure in check, it also boosts your overall health and fitness. So, work your muscles intensively once per week and improve the health of your blood vessels, and so much more.
