Aerobic exercise improves cardiorespiratory fitness but does not reduce blood pressure in prehypertensive African American women.

Quiona Stephens, Timothy Kirby, Janet Buckworth, Steven Devor & Robert Hamlin
Ten weeks of 30 minutes of aerobic exercise, three times a week at 70% VO2 peak, is a sufficient stimulus to improve cardiorespiratory fitness and workload achieved. However, this exercise regimen was not adequate in eliciting a simultaneous reduction in systolic, diastolic, or mean arterial blood pressure in this cohort of prehypertensive African American women. Additional studies are needed to determine specific exercise protocols that would be effective in lowering blood pressure in various populations....
