Training With High Blood Pressure - Here is What Ken at Tonicity Fit has to say

Often times people with high blood pressure, or hypertension, get worried about exercise. They wonder, how much should I do, will I put too much stress on the body, where do I begin? When you have high blood pressure is extremely important to continue exercising! This will actually help strengthen your arteries and keep down your blood pressure down over time. 

One of the most effective ways to do this is perform PHA training or peripheral heart action training. This type of training is done when performing an upper body exercise, shortly followed by a lower body exercise. PHA training is beneficial for those with high blood pressure because it forces blood flow throughout the body by working upper and then lower half of the body. Reinforcing this training with cardio that is low to moderate would be ideal for those who are battling high blood pressure. Ask your trainer if you have any questions!
