How to Reduce Your Resting Pulse Rate

In most cases, you can reduce your resting pulse rate. It's done by improving your physical fitness - development an exercise program, getting your weight into line, and improving your diet. Jogging both improves the muscle tone of your legs and the muscle tone of your cardiovascular system. Your heart is a muscle and your arteries and arterioles are lined with muscle cells. To improve the fitness of these muscles, they need to be exercised beyond the normal everyday level. As they become more fit, they don't have to work as hard to get all that blood moved around; consequently, as fitness improves, your resting pulse and blood pressure sure usually decline.

Exercise can be swimming, brisk walking, cycling, rowing, skating, skiing, and other activities, including skill sports like tennis, handball, and so on.

A word of caution: If you are starting an exercise program for the first time, start slowly. Discuss your plans with your doctor to be sure that the program you select is ambitious enough to be effective but not dangerous for you. If you are out of shape, you didn't get that way in a day or two. To get into shape, you will require more than a day or two; in fact, it will require a month or two.

People can lower their pulse and blood pressure by willpower alone through biofeedback. Biofeedback enables you to monitor your pulse and blood pressure, which you can then, through conscious effort, lower. With practice, it can help reduce high blood pressure. Meditation is another form of mental conditioning that reduces pulse rate and blood pressure.

does a brittle on high blood pressure meds and propranalol (10mg/3day) still have to worry about high resting pulse (100-108) even while exercising everyday and eating veg.?
