What is the price for relentlessly high blood pressure? It could be a stroke; it could be worse. You can take steps to lower that risk without additional medication. From this study, Twenty-four hour, ambulatory blood pressure responses following acute exercise: impact of
exercise intensity
:

“An exercise bout conducted between 50-75% VO2max [maximal oxygen uptake] significantly decreases systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) in hypertensive subjects and that a greater and longer-lasting absolute reduction is evident following a 75% of maximum bout of exercise.”

Other studies have also shown that high intensity interval training (HIIT) lowers blood pressure (BP).

Studys Shows That HIT Exercise Lowers Blood Pressure

From this study, High-intensity interval training and hypertension: maximizing the benefits of exercise?:

"Several studies have shown that high-intensity interval training (HIT), which consists of several bouts of high-intensity exercise (~85% to 95% of HRMAX and/or VO2MAX lasting 1 to 4 min interspersed with intervals of rest or active recovery, is superior to Continuous moderate-intensity exercise training CMT for improving cardiorespiratory fitness, endothelial function and its markers, insulin sensitivity, markers of sympathetic activity and arterial stiffness in hypertensive and normotensive at high familial risk for hypertension subjects. This compelling evidence suggesting larger beneficial effects of HIT for several factors involved in the pathophysiology of hypertension raises the hypothesis that HIT may be more effective for preventing and controlling hypertension."
