Thus, a study carried out by a team of Japanese researchers showed that short and regular walks help reduce pressure, recalls the expert. This concept has already been baptized as exercise snacksAs even a single minute of exercise is quite effective.

Murphy admits that stair climbing is the best exercise for hypertensive patients. He says that one of his students asked the nurses to climb the stairs of the clinic during the day. The short but regular exercise lowered her blood pressure in eight weeks.

“A tiny amount of exercise, just two minutes a day, benefited his health better than a longer, gentler exercise. So I think climbing stairs it is definitely the best activity“, he concludes.
