Hypertension is a “Silent Killer”, most of the time, it has no obvious symptoms to indicate that something's wrong and many people are unaware that they have the condition. Resistance exercise has been recommended as part of the therapeutic approach in individual with hypertension. Studies have shown that resistance exercise reduces blood pressure (BP) to levels below resting values, a more stringent metaanalysis of high-quality trial evidence reported that resistance training had no effect on systolic BP and smaller overall reductions in diastolic BP (–2.2 mm Hg). A 5 mm Hg reduction in systolic BP is expected to translate into 14% and 9% reduction in stroke and coronary artery disease mortality, respectively. It is recommended that all individuals complete appropriate screening prior to commencing an exercise program (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire. Exercise is generally contraindicated in untreated or uncontrolled hypertensive individual with resting BP >160–180/105–110 mm Hg. Intensive isometric exercise such as heavy weight lifting can have a marked pressor effect and should be avoided. Individual with hypertension should be informed about the nature of cardiac prodromal symptoms e.g. shortness of breath, dizziness, chest discomfort or palpitation and seek prompt medical care if such symptoms develop. Follow the FITT principal when creating a resistance exercise program and should not perform concentric failure (UF). The largest isometric training reductions in resting BP have been demonstrated in hypertensive patients. We would like to propose a new A New Invention of Isometric Exercise for Individual with Hypertension - 360° TitaniUM Core Strength Exercise. The clinical significance of the 360° TitaniUM Core Strength Exercise as a time-efficient and effective training modality to reduce BP, warrant further study.
